I'd Never Thought I'd Want a Female Betta so Badly.
so, i went to petsmart today "to look" with my mom (but really i was looking for some plants or decor i could add to my tank hehe), and i looked at the betta section of course, and they were all surprisingly really small. their bettas usually aren't so small, so i was wondering why they were selling them so young.
anyways, i saw this amazingly cute, all white female, and she was just the tiniest little thing with tiny black button eyes. she followed my finger, and was just too frecking cute. i decided i had to have her.
i would have bought a temporary 1 gallon tank, which was only $10, and i would use some stones and decor i had at home. i would do two water changes each week: 1 50% and 1 100% and keep her on my desk, near my other tank with my male betta. eventually, after about two or three months, i would buy a 2.5 gallon.
but, my mom wouldn't let me. i was so bummed. i was seriously this close to convincing her. i'd never thought i'd want a female so badly. i'd definitely seen numerous males in the past after i had already gotten my little red, that i really wanted, but i knew i couldn't.
but when i saw this tiny little girl, gosh i don't know. haha i seriously still want her. now, it's my goal to get a female soon. i never thought i'd want to have more than one betta, at least not until i was older. gosh, bettas are addictive.
