Yup...I've got sucker written all over my forehead!! So...heres the story...I leave work and go to pick up some used equip for my 20g from a guy that is sooo way out of control with fish it makes us look like beginners. I got this AquaClear 300 filter for $5, and yeah its way to big for my tank, but I might try it because the flow is adjustable...
Heres where Petco comes in... I thought well I'll stop there and see if they still make the filter media for this filter....picked up a few more live plants "buy 2 bet 1 free"....they still carry the filter media
...and there on the betta shelf set this flippin beautiful HM male!!
I guess because I was so bummed out about being outbid on my first AB fish...I just had to have this guy.
Picture attached...doesn't do him justice, his fins are white with a tinge of pastel pink and then he has these bluish rays in his tail...I still have him in his cup, working on his QT...the top half of the moon looks a little nipped, but don't see any signs of finrot, so maybe with some good clean water it will be fine.
Oh and I almost had to duke it out with the cashier, because she wanted him, really take him, I don't need another fish...but no she says she will just pick another!
