Talking Christmas Rescue!

I didn't think I would have the oportunity to do this, but I was doing my volunteering at PetCo this evening and when I was done I went looking for a suitable betta for my cousin's gift. There were several pretty ones, but when I went to look on top of the turtle tank (where they seem to stockpile the knockouts) I saw thhis absolutely GORGEOUS crowntail and I just had to get him! He's red with a greenish blue iridesence on his body and rays. If I'm remembering tail types correctly, I think he's a crowntail plakat, because his fins are shorter than a normal crowntail (no evidence of fin rot). If only I could keep him! Ah, well. At least he'll belong to someone I know and can badger for pictures. :D
I'll get some pics up momentarily.

My Betta Buddies:
Male
Prince Kaida (VT)
Bentley (DT)

Female
Roxanne (VT)
Elle (CT)
Korra (CT)
Candy (VT)

Rest in peace, Ralph, Xiang, and Violet...I'm sorry you didn't live to see better care!

My late CT looked just like that tail wise when I got him. He'll grow a bit more so be ready for super long rays likely 'forked' rays or double rayed as their called. Looks like an Orchid too. ^^ Lucky find!

Lelouch of the Petsmart Rebellion - Orchid VT

Yugi - German Sheperd/Pitbull mix. The real King of the house.

There are no coincidences in this world...Only the inevitable.....
