You need therapy, that guy needs a good whack upside the head with a bucket and siphon hose. Can you return your male for a girl? Because the bettas here are almost always in cups, it's easy for me to pick the cup up and look for the ovipositor. If I can see through the filth, anyway.

Pics!

First up is Anderson. He seems to like the camera, a real natural just like his namesake.

Next is the new girl, Rachel Alexandra. Can you tell I stink at taking pics? I was trying out the different settings on the camera so one is ridiculously high flash and one is ridiculously low. When I bought her, I swear she was the same color as Anderson's tail.

Here's a quick updated picture of Zenyatta (Rags) in her new tank. She's decided to be red today.

And Goldikova in the netbreeder because she bit Zenny. Timeout, go sit in the corner! That's what I get for naming her after a racehorse with a reputation for biting everyone in sight.

sakura, your anderson looks just like a bigger version of my "little boy blue" aawww!! off subject... wow i was in wally world today...and yes unfortunatly i just had to go into to fish section...just for a 10w cfl for Dallas' new hood on his 3 gal....but oh i don't know what happened i did well and didn't come home with a fish today!!! yeah!!....they got some scary looking fish... they are long and skinny, some were deformed looking, i found one i think was a female in a cup marked as male i almost bought her( thinking i want to start a sorority...but dang i just didn't have it in me today...what a mess. I must have got extremely lucky when I got Harley and Dallas, because in my opinion my boys are some fine looking CT's...especially compared to what they have sitting on their shelves today....i was wondering, do breeders sell off their males to places like walmart if they don't perform??? I was wonderin maybe those there fish were young, not sure how to tell.

I know breeders sell their older males (over a year) to places like Petsmart and Petco. I don't know about Wal-Mart and man, I sincerely hope not. Your Wal-Mart sounds like a horror story. :( I wonder if the fish were deformed to begin with and a dishonest breeder sold them that way or they got deformed after living at Wal-Mart for a while. So sad. But bravo for you, resisting temptation. If you can keep it up, we may have you teach a seminar.

I think . . . have I seen pictures of Little Boy Blue? Haha, I'm so corny, I named Anderson after Anderson Cooper, the CNN anchor. No, really, I don't have a crush on him. Not at all. Nope. Maybe just a little. A teeny little. He's still single, right?

Careful not to watch CNN!! You may put Cooper to sleep, and then we'd never know about anything!

If he falls asleep I'm slipping a wedding ring on that finger of his . . . ooooops, did I say that out loud? Oh well, maybe everyone is asleep anyway so they didn't hear me . . .
