I thought there were no butterfly Bettas in PetCo anymore the first time I walked around and I was really hoping for a blue one, but I checked again and there he was :) I really wanted a HM with his coloring because they had some last week, but they were all gone.
They seem to like exploring their QTs. It's a bit of a downgrade for Mister Fishy II because he was in two gallons at the LFS, but for Azul it's quite the upgrade, which is nice. They're really active. They swim around a bit, stop and rest, and then keep swimming :) Mister Fishy didn't swim quite as much as these two do, and I'm glad they're active. It makes me think I'm doing something right :)
On the way home Azul was trying to decide whether or not to flare at me. It was cute. He'd be like halfway there and his gills would be flared out a bit but then he would change his mind and go back to swimming around normally.
I can't wait till tomorrow when I can feed them (I always heard from people on here to let them settle in for a day before feeding) :) I bought frozen brine shrimp and bloodworms when I got Mister Fishy II and it'll be my first time giving Bettas frozen foods but I think they'll like them more than pellets.
RIP Mister Fishy :(
