Kinetic, yeah. Red to blue is pretty normal. Pitluvs' boy . . . that was pretty darn unusual.
Sooo, I go to Petco to return the king. While I'm there, I see two girls and their dad. They're going to buy bettas. I would have ignored it all except I heard one girl say "We're going to make lots of betta babies!"
So I immediately said, "You can't put them in the same tank."
"No, you can't put two bettas in the same tank."
I go to find their dad. "You can't put two bettas in the same tank."
"Really? The lady told me two females could go together."
Here, I should note one was a CT female, the other was a CT male.
"No, they can't go together."
So they go to look at tanks again. And they got the dreaded Betta Bow. Yes, that tiny tank divided in two, barely big enough for one.
I did buy another king but he's settling in right now. Baby Aqua got kicked out of her 3 gallon and into the sorority, although I was originally gonna wait till she got big enough.
I lost my boy Spackle. I woke up this morning to find him pineconed but not bloated. Into epsom salt and IAL he went. Found him gone when I came home from Petco. :( I don't know what happened. I would put Aqua in his part of the divided tank but I'm afraid to. I might remove Curlin and scrub the whole dang thing.
And that's my saga.
