Back when I lived with my mom and step dad my step dad was a jerk so I wasnt alllowed to have anymore fish. I was at Petsmart and saw a cool looking red and white betta and even had an open 2.5 gallon. Also wasanother incident with a pretty yellow female but didn't have room at the time. Needless to say i was mad. Now I live at dads I can do what I want now lol.

Male Bettas: Renji (Red VT), Hitsugiya (Blue VT), Riddle (multicolor VT), Kirameki (unknown colored baby DT), Ataturk (Orange Dalmatian VT), Darian (Blue Butterfly VT)
Female Bettas: Sorority tank know as the Sailor Scouts and Wicked Lady (gun metal blue VT)

This very day I was in a petshop where they keep all the males in beer glasses (they don't stock females). There were some beauties and I wish I could have taken them all home just to get them out of those glasses. :(
I also fell in love with the calmest, cutest little white rabbit, but until I move out of home, I can't have him. :( LEaving him behind was very hard.

There's a beautiful purple butterfly plakat that's been at my local Petco for MONTHS. They take really good care of the bettas at that store (the man who deals with the fish stuff is a little odd, but he's a REAL fish expert. If all chain employees were like him, it'd be a better world) so I don't feel compelled to "rescue" him. I'm actually very good at holding back when looking at bettas as I know my space is limited. When I have my own place, I'm in trouble with ALL animals!

I went to go buy a new fish today, and saw a few dozen happy bettas in my LFS new "betta wall." They've got each betta in it's own gallon pickle jar and all of them are hooked up to a drip system. They've got a clump of plants or a moss ball to hide in, and it's honestly the best way to house bettas I've ever seen. (I'll have to take pictures of it if I ever remember.) I was torn between two bettas, a green deltatail and a HUGE red veiltail, who were both responsive and wiggle dancing at me. I bought the red one, named him Dr. Freeman. If I didn't have guppies in my 5.5, I would have bought the delta too, and named him Dog.

"We weep for a bird's song, but not for a fish's blood. Blessed are those with a voice."
Dr. Gordan Freeman - Red Veiltail
Mr. Quinn Fishy - Red Crowntail
Phinn "Boba" Fishy - Red Veiltail
Fafnir Fishy - Cambodian Dragon Delta

I went to Petsmart today for supplies. As usual they didn't have too much except a white plakat male. I think if I had lingered any more than I did I would have fallen in love. But sadly I'm out of money and out of space.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

I had to pass up a pure white and turquoise girl the other day at Walmart. Most of her was pure white and she had small marbling of a light green-turquoise coloration towards her back and on her tail.

I wanted to die.
I wanted to cry.
I wanted to buy.

But alas.. I had to let her go.
