Well... that trip to the store didn't go as expected. We stopped by Petco to see if they had gotten any new platies in. A week ago, we had gone in for the same thing and although I didn't see a platy that I wanted to add to the tank, I did browse the betta section for a bit. There was this strinking blue marble halfmoon guy that I just fell in love with. I had just gotten a 10 gallon a bit before, so I wasn't looking to get another betta. I REALLY wanted him, but I didn't get him.
So, today, when I went in, I wasn't expecting him to still be there. He was too amazing, after all. Well - he was still there! I still hadn't found any platies but I talked myself into getting him. So after buying him and running over to walmart to buy yet another tank and a couple more platies, I am now the proud owner of 2 10 gallon tanks. Tank 1 houses 1 male betta and 3 male platies and tank 2 houses 1 male betta and 2 female platies.
