Had to get another!!!!

Went to PetCo today and found a little female that just had to come home with me! Had plans to buy a neat 3 gallon tank that I had seen at wal-mart but when I got there they were out! So...new baby still came home and she is in
a 1 1/2 gallon bowl. Hopefully, I won't have any problems with that until I can get back and look for another tank. Still spinning names around...She is mostly white with a blue tail. She has dark eyes and little spots on her cheeks that look like blush. Princess? I don't know. Suggestions? Will take some pictures monday and post.

Also, my daughter has a red female {Bonnie} that will let you pet her! Anyone else able to "pet" there betta? It's pretty neat. No-one believes it, but it's true. We took a video on her phone to show some people and they still couldn't believe it. It does look pretty funny. Anyway, any other betta fish out there that are this strange?

Congrats on your new female. Can't wait to see pictures - she sounds so unique. If she looks like she's blushing, maybe you should name her Bashful :)

As for petting bettas, I've heard people do it but I think it messes up their slime coat if you do it too often. Just something to think about.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
