Yes, it goes to show how money is valued over the well being of a fish. :/ I hate it when people say "Its just a fish." If they'd take the time to realize what personality these fish have, they'd appreciate them more.
The 3 babies I got last night (Named the other two finally- one is Ala and the other is Bama... I'm a crimson tide fan) my BBS finally hatched and as soon as I introduced them to the tank, they all went NUTS darting around gobbling them up. :) I forgot how satisfying it is to see little betta babies full of food and happy.
I feel like a hero betta mom. :D
