:3 I finally called my transhipper and talked things out a bit, and it made me feel a LOT better. Now I'm more excited than nervous. I still hope everything goes okay. And snowflake311, I do hope it's not my last. :3 If I have a good experience, this might become my new thing. Although, I only have the one tank, and I'm getting this betta in the hopes that it will be my long term fish buddy, so I really hope that I don't screw it up. He's going to also be my first betta ever.
I would have just gone with one from the store, like at Petsmart or something, since this is my first time owning a betta fish, but a friend of mine has a girlfriend who had lots of betta fish, and they recommended against it because a lot of them are already sick when you buy them. So I just hope that I do everything right and don't kill him. :(
He's the fish in my avatar, and think he's GORGEOUS! And because bettas can be aggressive and because he's blue and yellow, I think I've decided to call him Gyarados, after the sea dragon pokemon by the same name. :3
