I've been a bad, bad girl.

I think we can all guess what happened.

So within two days (today and tomorrow), I will have an additional 4 bettas to add to the family.

Today:

Went to the first Big Al's location and saw that, as per usual, a lot of their bettas were not doing so well. Usually I don't go for bettas that are sick, but there was one today that really called out to me for some reason. He's a VT with a greenish body and red fins. He had ich and swim bladder issues, I think, because he kept swimming upside down and had a hard time swimming around in general.

So right now he's in the 1.5 gal bowl with some salt and ich medicine.

Second, went to the Petsmart close by to get said ich medicine...of course I had to check the betta section. Walked away with a multicolour VT guy that was marked as a female. Actually, I wasn't so sure about the gender at first, and I took a vid about it...then he flared with a noticable beard. I'll upload that later.

THEN I went to check out the Big Al's in Kanata as I had never seen it before, and the bettas they had there were GORGEOUS...And in a lot better shape than the other store.

And I put aside two boys that I couldn't leave the store without. One's a blue and white marble DT piebald and the other is a lavender VT.

I'll be going to pick them up tomorrow!

There was another boy I saw there that I really wanted too, a blue grizzle CT...but I thought, I'm already pushing it...so it was really hard to refuse him, but I did it. Hope he finds a good home though.

Will be spamming you guys with pics once I pick up the two other boys tomorrow and have them settled down!

Oh, thanks for the heads up! Usually I go to the one on Innes, and I find that they don't last very long for whatever reason, so I decided not to go there anymore. I'll definitely keep a close eye on them then.
