Patriot - I found him at my LFS. He was beautiful and I fell in love instantly. Unfortunately, I didn't have any money or supplies for him at the time, so I couldn't get him. Two weeks later, I went back with money and to my surprise, he was still there. I grabbed him up right away and took him home. c:
Tiny Tina - Another LFS purchase. I planned on getting a girl, but I didn't have any preferences on color or anything. I picked her because she was so tiny and spunky.
Poseidon - Got him from Petsmart. Patriot had passed away right before I moved to my college dorm, so I brought Tina with me. She passed not long after. The stress from moving house and then moving into the dorm was just too much for her. I really wanted a study buddy and someone to care for, so my roommate and I went to Petsmart, got ourselves a 10 gallon to divide, and we each got a betta. I couldn't decide between these two dragonscale bettas. One was pinkish and had a cute face, but then there was happy, healthy Poseidon. I went with him. I carried him around the store for a majority of the time we were there anyway. c:
Amphitrite - I wanted another girl, because after Tina, I got a bit attached to girls and their personalities. Boys are pretty, but the girls are hilarious. I saw this little girl with her bright red fins and her bright blue eyes, and black lipstick and fell in love. Got her from Petsmart. It was a bit of a rocky road at first, after I got her home, but now she's happy and healthy.
