I kinda hid him, so hopefully he'll be there if I do decide to go back.
Hm.... Nope, I don't live near you. I was thinking about stalking Petco to check him out. I love blue Bettas. Alas, I'm too far away, so if you hid him well, he might still be there when you go back.

Everyone here is as bad as I am. (If not worse.) How can I fight this Betta addiction when I read stories like the ones posted here? LOL

I just don't fight it anymore. I'm up to 6 adults, 2 jarred 6.5 week olds, and many fry still in the growout. I've fallen so deeply in love with bettas, that I've changed my career plans completely. I was going to become a nurse, but I'm now planning to major in business/marketing in college, with a potential minor in zoology/animal science, and open a specialty betta shop. I started my own jewelry business at 16, so I've got entrepreneurship experience.

The butterfly VT . . . .He is mine! A funny thing happened tho when I was going out of the store. Santa has a gig nearby and he was done and I was putting my betta in my coat. Santa looked at me in slight befuddlement, cracked a smile, and bellowed "MERRY FISHMAS!" then he was on his merry way. I just laughed.

So it was natural to name the new guy Claus, lol :P

Happen to me. They had what I'm calling a dalmation colored delta tail. He was a sheened white with turquoise/green ish spots. I really wanted him but ended up walking out with the two TINIEST little female CT's ever. MY bf is calling me the crazy fish lady ;-; I couldn't just leave them there to die. They had at least 45 + bettas.

I did see one the other day that keeps crossing my mind. He seemed to be a small CT, but I only saw a glimpse of him, so I can't be certain. But he was a cream colour with marbles of blue and red.

I won't be going back though. CTs are $24.99!

My dragonscale butterfly HM, Neptune was a lucky fish. The petsmart (which is actually fairly good) had 2 many bettas. I was torn between him, and copper DT and a blue and white HM. I was going to get a divided 10 and buy Neptune and the blue and white butterfly but I didn't. I got my sorority girls instead. Sorry not really a go back story.
