Hehe...well...

Long story short?
We got a new shipment in.
Need I say more?

Long story long? xD
So, it was stock day....we got a newshipment of VTs. I'd been eying them, though it was hard to see their colors in the blue water they ship them in.....though from what I could see, the standerd reds, blues, cambos, dalmations...all that jazz. There were a couple pretty ones, like this green/purple butterfly guy and this pale orange dude...
But this particular little bugger caught my eye for some reason, even in the blue water.
When the betta woman(SUPER nice awesome lady, has eight bettas herself ;))came and started to get these guys into fresh water, she let me watch and look at all the bettas, and we talked a bit about them and all that. I eagerly waited for her to get around to the one guy I'd been looking at, then held him up to the light once he was in nice, clean, clear water....and fell in love. I debated for a few minutes, but decided to snatch him up in the end. He was $4($2 for me ;D), the VTs always go fast...I knew he'd be gone by tomorrow if I let him go out onto the floor. He was just...so cool and different!!
She and a the other guy laughed and teased me a bit as I talked to the guy and set him by the lamp on the back desk so he could watch what was going on....but we're all fish people, we understand one another xDD Haha, so it was all good.
But yeah....new guy, no name yet xD Lol, I'm running out of space...but I have one more tank left after this guy!!! Hehe, I'm waiting for something SUPER awesome ;)

PICS ;D
LOL, you didn't think I'd post without pics did you? ;)

Aww, he's a pretty betta. :)
I like the dark/bright colors on him.
