I went to Petco and found 2 bettas in one cup ~
Did that get your attention? :D
It's true, but not like it might seem, it was an accident. I went to Petco, which was fun because it is so far away.This is the second time i've gone and the time was the first I actually took a look at all their fish. I have been thinking about getting an orange HM so I thought Petco would be a good place to look.
I got to see the workers open up a new shipment of bettas and put them on the shelves. There were alot of blue ones, a pretty yellow one and some other colors. Two of the bettas were put in one cup together and it was pointed out, so they quickly moved them to their own.
The funny thing though is that the bettas didn't fight each other or flare, they acted like it was normal. It makes sense that they didn't fight, they were probably trying adjust to their surroundings, but I wonder if it's possible they came from the same breeder?
Half their fish looked healthy, and half looked a bit under the weather. I didn't find any that looked bad, but a few weren't moving very much so I guess that counts as not so good .
There was cute little red one with purple scales that stared at me the whole time, trying to get my attention by showing himself off.
It was so cute because he literally swam around and faced me like he was the same as me saying "hey, look at me, I'm perky and happy, pick me!" I could tell he had a lot of personality.
I felt bad not bringing him home, but he was healthy so I'm sure someone will get him! They all would stare at me though so it was hard not to want to take them home! lol
With those "please let me go with you?" look on their faces!
I didn't know bettas were shipped in such small packages!
But each of them didn't have much room to move, they had blue water though and looked healthy when placed in the cups.
It was cool to see!
They had VT, CT, and HM. I belive they had Double Tails too, I remember seing one.
Do you think bettas understand when someone does not want them or like them?
Because when I got my CT (a while back), I carried him around and went back to the bettas to look again before I ended up getting him. When I did this he literally turned around and looked at the shelf then turned back and looked at me like he didn't want to be put back down.
Or is it more of us feel like they are "talking" to you?
