Petsmart had bettas on sale. Frist female + first crowntail!

I couldn't resist. I was in to pick up some ghost shrimp, and I saw that the ladies were 99 cents with the petco card, and the guys 3.99. I wind up picking out my first girly (whom I'm not photographing at the moment because, while she was gorgious when I picked her out form the back, right now she's just pale with dark stripes. The ride home scared her). She's greendish blue and metalic (though out of the blue water she may prove to be more green, with any luck!).

The other is a crowntail male. I wasn't sure if I wanted him-- he looked interesting but again with the blue water. I asked a worker if it was possible to get him some clear water. And onc ei saw him I knew I was brining him home;



*swoons* He's so handsome! I don't normally go for crowntails but DANG!

Oh my goodness. o.e That boy looks EXACTLY like the one I was thinking of getting a week or so ago... like same yellow ventrals, same dippy head, same copper coloring, EVERYTHING. You live in the US, though, yeah?

Looking forward to pics of your girly :)

lol it seems like he's got some twins ou there!

And man, I'm sorry. I haven't had a fish go belly-up right after bringin it home, as far as my bettas go-- but I'm always pretty careful about choosing healthy-looking fish. And lucky, I guess.

Mister Auron WAS healthy looking! he was the most active fish there, and the only one without SBD. :/ he was beautiful, too. pitch black body, blood red fins, and the tiniest bit of electric blue at the base of his rays.

Very pretty! I ALMOST got a gorgeous green girl while I was there yesterday but I made myself leave. Maybe if she's still there after my final tomorrow I'll go get her as a reward to myself.

And finally got some photos of my girly. She, like Calder, freaks out at the camera flash. She paled up a bit by the time I got good shots-- normally she's a bit darker. I just thought she was lovely in the store. C:
