First Betta By Mail!

I ordered a pink and purple delta tail boy from Chard, here on the forum. I love Chard's fish, and I really wanted my first shipping experience with a US breeder.

My fishy is now in the mail and should be here tomorrow!

It's great timing because I ordered a few things from Petco's website and some of it is for him. That shipment is coming today. I got a volcano bubbler with a red led light to make "lava", 8 plastic plants for the 55 gallon community tank, 3 silk plants for the new guy, a "broken jug" hide for the new guy, and two boxes of filter cartridges. And all for about forty dollars! I wasn't going to do it, but the boyfriend is a bad influence ;p

So I will be anxiously watching for UPS and my mail lady for the next two days. I kind of want to make a betta unboxing video. (Everyone will have to ignore the accent, please).

This is my traveling boy :) I told Chard pink and purple are my favorite colors so this guy was perfect!

No name yet. I've thought of Lucian, Orca (manly form of orchid), Sparkles (I think I was joking about that one), and Avenger.

Boyfriend wants to call him Pinky -.- or The Brain. But he got to name Commander (who he actually named Commander Crunch), so it's my turn.

Thank you! Since I'm not showing or breeding, I mostly shop for color and whether or not I like the tail type :)

I just got the cartridges and about half of my new plants... All of the other things won't be here until tomorrow.

I wish Petco had told me half my stuff shipped later. It's not a huge biggie, but I wanted to have the new boy's home totally ready.

That's one pretty fish. I'm looking forward to that video and hopefully some pics of him with his new decor. Congrats on your new finned friend!

Thank you guys!

I went ahead and put his silk plants in the tank. I'm sure his hideaway won't get here until after he does, but oh well ><

I also spent the afternoon making craft mesh hammocks for everyone :)

His spot is on the right- Commander is going to be his neighbor. Commander has the grumpiest face but he is a very chill guy. His side of the tank looks very bright compared to the other spaces since he has mostly silk plants. Everyone does have their own Anubias plant though.
