He's Gorgeous. He didn't deserve for those boys to treat him like that. What did he ever do to them? It sickens me to think that people could treat creatures like that, when they know that they cant defend themselves. They are animals just like a dog is would they treat a dog like that. I agree that you were meant to get him. I have this saying which is in my signature. We don't chose the betta the betta choses us. Sometimes you just know that you are meant to have him.
" You don't chose a Betta, the Betta choses You"
