He was pretty
I went to Petsmart today and sort of glanced at the bettas. I'm not really interested in veils or CTs so it wasn't to see if I could find something to take home. One of the little guys really stood out. There was a deep blue spade tail (I don't think I've seen one in person). He was small, so I could tell he was young. He was pretty, vibrant, and very active. He just wasn't something you (or I'd) see everyday at a Petsmart.
Also, while I was there, I saw a small family with a betta and checking out the small death traps they call betta homes. I recommended something a bit bigger to them. Not sure if they took the advice, but I tried. I also told them to check out this website if they needed any help. :)
