Okay fine =D Opals story (I don't think my made up ones are very good...)
Part 1: A pitiful Betta
I looked at the tank next to me. "That's the new guy!" Somebody next to me said. He obviously was just shipped in, he looked a mess. He had huge stress stripes and was a pale gray and orange color. What an ugly Betta! I pitied him. I was going to say something, but the Betta next to him, Penny, got there first. "Hey you with the gray scales, I'm Penny!" He said. He showed off his giant coppery fins, obviously trying to intimidate the new guy. The new Betta flared back, his fins were pitiful in comparison, stuck together at the ends.
"I'm dragon." He replied, with a voice full of might. It surprised me, with such an appearance I expected him to be a timid thing. Penny drew back in surprise, also, and said, "You wont last a week here. Only HANDSOME Bettas get to breed." Before zooming around and hiding off somewhere in his tank. Dragon looked at me hopefully, but I didn't want anything to do with him and hid behind a plant.
I peeked out and saw him flaring at his reflection and then turning away. The stress stripes were gone when he turned.
If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows
