Meet Pippa: My Tiny New Girl
Sorry the pictures are such poor quality. I was looking at betta's at Petsmart a few days ago, and Dwarden3 and I decided to rescue a very sick fish and try to save her. Unfortunately, she didn't make it. SIP Blessing. However, that left us with the opportunity to get another female. I had fallen in love with this little girl while looking, but taken the sick fish because I felt she needed me more. Well, now I have this little girl and she looks quite healthy. I did not choose the name Pippa, Pippa chose her. I joked that we should name her Kate in honor of the royal couple and their new baby, but I typically name my fish P's, and she looks like a Pippa, don't you think?
She is a tiny crowntail with an extremely pale pink, almost white, body and brownish-red fins. I hope her color will become more vibrant over time. She is my only girl right now, and is currently quarantined in a gallon tupperware container (the lengths I will go to to get more fish) until I move my boys around and either give her half of a divided 10 gallon or a 2.5 gallon all to herself.
She is so little though! Next to my two big boys, she looks tiny, about eight of her could fit in Parli's body! I think she must be extremely, extremely young, nearly a baby. I am excited to see how her colors come in as she gets older!
Welcome to the family, Pippa!
