Oh love is a fickle thing ....

I was at Big Al's today getting supplies and there were some beautiful HMPKs for sale. Among them was a white/turquoise marble dragon. He was so pretty! In the light I could see that he had light green 'eyeshadow' and his eyes were flecked with white. Needless to say, he was love at first sight! I had no more money to spend, but I would have grabbed him if I could. The earliest I can go is tomorrow morning ... which is a little while from now. I really hope he's still there when I go. Fingers crossed that he is.

I'm on my way right now! I should get there just as the store opens so I'll be in and out ... hopefully with him :)

He sounds gorgeous! :) Pics please!

Just be careful with Big Al's- the few I've been to have bettas that were mostly infested with parasites- mostly gill mites and tapeworms being the biggest issues (one of which you can't identify until you get the fish into cleaner water). Not to scare you off- just a caution.

Okay, he is here! I got home with him a few hours ago but had to go out right away again. BS, I will definitely watch for any signs of illness.

Only two pics, he will not stay still :)
