How odd is this, I came to this part of the forums to start a similar thread.
I went into a LFS because I needed a heater for Ghoul's tank (sadly he had to go two weeks without one, but the room is really hot so his water was at about 75-76 this whole time).
While there, a few guppies caught my attention (some really bright blue coloured males) and I wanted to get one for my community tank.
While I was approaching the tank, right next to it I see a tank filled with Bettas. This was a tank of a maximum of 1g (seriously, that is a maximum as I believe it may have been a little over 0.5g). In it, there were atleast 10 Betta (no typo), males *and* atleast one female. No joke, I may have had a tiny heart attack. They were all in terrible shape!
Since I have no way of bringing all of them home with me, I decided I salvage atleast one, the female (out of the bunch, she was the worst looking one).
I told the person that was selling them "Hey look, this Betta is crying". She laughed at me saying that fish don't cry. I replied something like "Believe me, this one is, she has to. I want to take here home". So I did. While I was paying for everything and everyone that "person" had the nerve to say that they (Bettas) love sharing a small tank, "look how happy they are". They were in a constant battle, and she though this means they love it, that's why they're so active...
Anyways, the female has her fins so shreaded that I actually though she's a CT male or someting at first. She's a VT (atleast I think, I'm not really an expert) in terrible state! I brought her home and I'll keep her with my guppies for now in my community tank (a 10g). She seems to love the new place and she's already queen of the manor as far as I can see.
Liches are depicted as being clearly cadaverous, their bodies desiccated or even completely skeletal. Liches are often depicted as holding power over hordes of lesser undead creatures, using them as their soldiers and servants.
A better description could not exist for the shape this lovely creature was in and how she now dominates her new home. So, as of today, my home proudly welcomes Lich :)
