Too many people have opinions on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have.

I shoulda known better than to ask you folks for name ideas. By the way, does anyone else find themselves typing "betta" when they meant to type "better" and having to go back to fix it?

Anyway, since all my girls are named after race horses, I finally settled on Go For Wand or Wanda for short. I know, I have very weird naming habits.

I type betta instead of better all the time, lol. then again, it seems like my mind wanders off while typing and I end up substituting in weird words a lot >_>
ooh, something shiny

Glad to know I'm not the only one who mistypes and whose mind needs a leash or it will get lost.

New betta alert!
The petco by my house was a house of horrors today. They probably have at least 100 bettas (they got a new shelving devise, I'll try and take pictures) and over half were dead, or floating on their sides. We've had a massive heat wave here, so that may have been the cause. The shipment probably came in a truck yesterday. Gah, I felt so bad for the survivers, and the ones suffering/lost. I saw this one guy who was strikingly beautiful and I couldn't leave him to die surrounded by others. I took him home put him in my third section of my divided 10 and he isvery active and brightened up! He even made a bubblenest!Iknow it's not a sign of happiness but it has sentimental value to mama!



Herehe is, my little Firework!

So what are you putting on your new shelf system, eh, eh? I want to see pics of it when you've got it all set up. Lucky you. And I think the four shelf one is really the perfect size since one of the shelves of the bigger unit would have been wasted.

Sounds like your Petco overstocked again. :( So irresponsible. Poor things, that's just awful. I can never believe how these people at pet stores can leave dead bodies in there for days.

But on a much brighter note, Firework is gorgeous! He's so bright, you named him well. And he's a doubletail, oooh!
