I Caved....

I've been admiring a female VT every time I go to Petco. Tiny, white with pink iridescent sheen on her scales and BLUE eyes. By far the cutest, girliest girl fish I've every seen. I kept on waiting for someone to buy her, I even put her in a place on the display so that she was the first female you could see. Because she's gorgeous and she deserves a home and I don't want to fall victim and buy her. But for a WEEK, no one bought her, and I kept going to get things for Gyarado's tank and I kept seeing her and.... well....

I went and bought her. And named her Ariel.

Pics soon, I promise as I am excited and ashamed (at the caving) all at the same time.

I don't blame you. Same thing happened to me, except that it was a pretty boy fish and I didn't get to him in time before he died and was replaced. :c

Thanks guys! She's doing really well. Right now her tank is fairly bare because I'm giving her a five day treatment with Betta Revive since she was a little sickly from the dirty cup she came in. She's grown though. She's very small and I have to crush her pellet so she can eat, but she's fattened up since I brought her home.

Pictures are unfortunately going to be in a few days. My camera died and I left my charger at my parents place. They're mailing it to me, so it'll be here in a few days.
