Betta #8 another "steal"!

I got my 8th betta today! He will be sharing the new 10g divided tank with the beautiful BF OHM I got the other night. I got my dividers made, light and filter purchased, and then I went to PSP to see the new shipment that came in yesterday. I was glad to see one of my favorite employees on, and not the nasty ones from the other night. She and I talked while I checked out the new ones...I spotted this sweet little cellophane boy whose cup was not yet marked..all of their regular VTs and CTs are on sale for $1 right now. I told her he was the one I wanted and she said, "Wait I have to mark his cup for you"...we got done talking and I walked away. That's when I noticed she had marked him as a regular betta, meaning he was $1...He is actually a DTHM (I think)...I walked back over to her and showed her the difference between him and the VTs, and told her he should be $9.89...she says, "You have more bettas than anyone I know, and I KNOW he will have a great home with you, he will probably die just staying here...take him"! So, once again I got a great deal on what should have been a $10 fish! I can't wait to get him and "Bayou" into the new 10g, which I am adding live plants too also. What a great week for deals...for me and the fish! I'm so happy. Can't wait to get all the new equipment up and running, and get them into their new home. I was also able to get a few more bunch plants on sale for $1 a bunch. Now, where to set up the new tank? OH, and I have to think of another "B" name lol. I think it's safe to say I've gone betta crazy..and I love it!

LOL... I love that employee! She is a really sweet girl, and listens so intently when I explain anything about betta care, which makes me feel good that she is learning more about her job. I can't wait to get pics of him! Imagine two great fish for under $5 bucks..it has been my week for bargains. You're right, "Brodie" might get used this time..we'll see lol. He is so tiny...I know he's a DT..just not sure on the rest, but I don't care...another betta not in a cup. Funny, hubby told me "no more" after 3! I thinks he's just gotten used to the whole idea of "more bettas are better" lol. I love him for being so supportive. He called me from work earlier and asked if I got everything I needed for the new tank..I'm so blessed.

Ahhhhh can I just move to your area and get friendly with your LPS too? I want a $10 fish for $1! xD
I'm BEYOND jealous....I have a thing for Cellophane's, one of my all time favorite colors. Haven't been able to bring one home since my very first, a VT who will always have a special place in my heart, though I also have only seen a handful of them in the couple of years since then...
Pictures pictures pictures! I can't want to see this new guy of yours. xD

LOL..yeah, the deals have been great here lately! I felt kind of bad the other night knowing I was getting a OHM for $3.89..but the girls were so snotty..and to be honest, if they thought he was a normal VT or CT..they overcharged ME! lol...Anyway, I couldn't walk away with this one knowing he was not one of the $1 bettas, I would have felt awful. I'm glad I told her the truth, and that she was so cool about letting me have him anyway. I will get pics up soon..still no name. I have been trying to find a way to set up all of my tanks in the living room...my bedroom is going to be too cool soon. I have heaters, but, I like my room chilly at night. It is still in the 80s and 90s during the day here, so I rejoice in the cool air when it comes. I have a vintage 1972 stereo console that is not working right now..I didn't want to use it for the tanks, but, I think that is what I'm gonna have to do. I'll just pick up a couple plastic table cloths for it...it will be cheaper than trying to buy something else right now, and is long enough for a couple tanks. I am so excited to transform my living room into a fish room! Then I can enjoy them all in one place...yeah.

hahaha! awesome :D You go girl!

Can't wait for pics, and to find out the baby's name!

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.
