I want to cry :3

Tears of joy, that is. On the day I got back from my vacation, I found two of my fish dead, one being my first, and the other my favorite. I talked to my friend, crying, and she reassured me, and I was so thankful for that. Today, she became someone I love and respect, and I will now defend her no matter what. When everyone else said "it's just a fish", she stuck by me and tried to reassure me, and was very, very sensitive through it all. She's been telling me she has a gift, and I had no idea what it was until now....

Meet Saphire, AKA Saff (Named by her, not me :P)

Of course my stepdad, who killed my fish, had the gall to ask "Do they have a return policy on that?" I just turned and walked away. He bugs me, but I'm not one to lose my temper, no matter how much he deserves to be chewed out.

And YES, I know, horrible pictures. The lighting in my room is terrible, because I am currently running on one lightbulb instead of three. xD I'm trying to get my mom to take me to Pet Supplies Plus to pick up a tank, then he can get settled in. Otherwise he'll be in a one gallon D:

If the pictures are big, I apologize D: Photobucket isn't working right at the moment...

Also... hmmm... I felt this wasn't fit really for the Photo Gallery because it was more of a "OMG, LOOK!" thread, than a "FISHHEREPLEASELOOK" thread. You know? If it should be changed, I'm alright with that, though (: Just wasn't quite sure...

AW!!! He's beautiful!!!! So glad you got another boy, that was SO sweet of your friend!!

Sorry 'bout your step dad and the way he's been acting, makes me think of how grateful I am that my parents don't mind my fish and like them.

Thanks everyone! She really has shown herself to be someone I can really rely on when I need her.
Back to Saff... I put his (sadly) one gallon tank next to Shani, and he's not even out of the cup yet and he's ALREADY flirting with her xD It's so cute to see, especially because he's so smalll xDD

I agree with the above! Saff is so cute!! He's so small :D Such a pretty VT! Also, you have a really nice friend. My BEST friend keeps saying "It's just a fish" = =. Sigh. I'm sorry for your losses though ;[ And for your step dad. At least he lets you have all those fish! My mom is so intolerable about more than one betta! I think I'm going to go crazy!
