New wagtail platies

Hi guys, so its my last lfs trip for months so last hurrah! For the 2g betta tank in my room, i found a 4" mini filter and a betta heater. So, now that my betta tank is complete, Cascade is very lonely. She needs friends! So in went the platies. She loves them! Shes been very active now that the water is up to 76 degrees, and the platies are friendly. Almost got white clouds or tetras but changed my mind. I decided on poecilia genus. Not guppies, added variety, and here we are. Put them in, rescaped, and i love it. What do you think?http://i866.photobucket.com/albums/a...psz8i60wub.jpg

Why your last trip? Looks good and good choice not going with guppies. Betta would kill it because they look the same to a fish.

Ive been going every weekend for the last 3 months, and the only place with fish stores (4 fish stores!!!) is 45 minutes away. We dont go back until I run out of filters. There are a lot. So. Can i change the filter daily? Lol.
