Smile Took Home 2 New Bettas Today :)

Well, I couldn't help myself. I just recently moved AGAIN to Washington state from CT at the end of March, beginning of April. I only lived in CT for not even 2 months O.o Regardless, I've been on the down lately having to leave friends and memories behind and not having any friends out here. So, I decided when I was out buying a new lens for my camera that I would bring home a betta. I already have my precious little Dinq and although he means the world to me, I've decided to open my arms to more betta children :)

As I was browsing the ones in Petsmart (I feel they are better quality fish there) I saw this gorgeous purple veiltail. I guess I just have a soft spot for them, but he had this funny curl at the end of his ventricle. I like a little personality to a fish--obviously you're not getting show quality from Petsmart. So, I kept looking at him. They had a lot of blue and green mixes, but then I saw this interesting colored one. He was a crown tail and I thought he was really neat. I was of course torn and the cute little betta pout got to the best of me.

I know my husband is probably gonna have a cow when he comes back from 3 days of duty, but I had a shopping spree. He'll have to get over it.

Here's the little fellas. I'm not sure about names yet they are kinda hard to name...

Purple Veiltail:
(He doesn't look purple here too much, he looks more blue. I think it's just the crappy lighting in my bedroom)

and here is the awesome crowntail: I actually don't know what to even call his markings/colors... any help on that?

US Navy Hooyah!

The CT is a copper. My favourite!

I think a couple of bettas is much more reasonable than a cow. Where's he going to keep that?

The Crowntail is a beautiful Copper!!! They have names?

Torch - (Technically sister's) - Male HM multicolor
Zane - Male DBHM White/blue-green marble
Regina - Female Delta Purple/red grizzle multicolor
Holding a grudge is like swallowing poison and expecting the other person to die.
RIP Nightmare!

Such "momentary indiscretions" are never to be regretted! Enjoy your beautiful new buddies & best wishes. That "betta pout" gets all of us eventually.
