Cool You'll NEVER Guess What Happen Today.......

Heads up - My dad is Awesome <3 ~ Read Below.

Alright well.. As most of you may know, I baught a sick betta in hopes of reviving him and giving him a good home (RIP Fighter..) but he sadly died this morning. I went back to the same PetSmart to return his meds and to buy the orange dal that was there.... My Dad took me & he saw me stareing at the Bettas.. So I asked him (Here is how it went..)

"Coco (Thats what I call my Dad), what one should I get?" (There was the dal and this BEAUTIFUL yellow & white beauty that was so healthy just like the dal..)

"Mm...Both." And he walks away..

I stand thinking.. He comes back

"But I only have money for one & only one tank.."
"Don't worry about it, I have money." (WOW! Moment)

So I put both in the cart & my dad chooses a 2.5 gallon tank for me. I was ready to when he suddenly says...

"One More?" HUGE grin on his face.

"Um.. Okay." So it was done to 2 CTs, 1 red with purple & a beautiful blue with aqua/redish splashes on him..

"Coco, you pick." I flat didn't want to choose because I was afraid of regretting the choice later.

"Mm... Both." So we chose a 1 gallon that has a divider (Its only temporary.) for the 2 of them.

So we came home with 4 male bettas! I only wanted 1 and my dad some how convinced me to get all 4 x.x..... Oh and get this, he was looking at this huge at least 100g tank that was about $120 that he wants to get and divide up for all of our fish! Plus my dad spent almost a $100 on the first, the tanks, gravel, & plants.. I LOVE my dad.. I thought it was the kids who were suppose to talk to parents into getting fish!! LOL!! I'm so glad my dad and I have this type of hobby to share together. I'll post pics later.

OH!!! Almost forgot.. My dad is converting the basement room (That has our 2 birds in there) to my personal fish room!! It won't be totally mine, but you guys get the idea! <3 I'll never complain about my dad EVER again...

So... I went from having 1 betta, to getting 4 more in the mail this coming week, making 5... to now 4 more in the house right now.. DUDES.. I have 9 bettas... This is so insane..x.x.

Oh - yeah.. me and my dad haven't told my mom....so.... well yeah, we'll deal with that issue when she comes home o.o..Lol..

Btw- all 4 beauties are 100% healthy, I made sure :3..I'm so proud of myself for picking great fish & for my dad being SO awesome.. Today..Is.. Great.. Peace out for now Bettas Buds <3 ~

That is sooo awesome! Post pics as soon as you can!
Dad's are the best. LOL. My mom is like "OOh, I don't know. Do we really have the room?"
And dad is "Just go get whatever. Get two if you want."
LOLLLL.
Congrats!
