Seki, I assume you know me from HEE?

I have been wanting bettas forEVER. Now that Park got his job, we have a tank cycling and getting ready for fish. I have a smaller tank on the way, as well, in case the community tank does not work out for the betta. :)

All animals deserve respect, not just the cute and pretty ones.
Without "bugs", we would lose about 1/3 of our food, be nose high in decay, and entire ecosystems (including everything that supports the popular animals!) would collapse.

Heh, yep. I'm the one who started the betta thread on there, actually. LOL

I'm so glad about Park's job, btw!! I think I already told you that on HEE, but... yeah, still glad! LOL

I can't wait to see your fishy once you get him! You want a PK, huh? I saw this straaaaange looking PK at Petsmart when I got Zen. I am not kidding, he had metallic green eyes. I didn't see a pupil in either one, they were just solid, metallic green eyes. They kind of freaked me out, actually... I sort of wonder if the fish was blind...?

Aha! Well, hi! :D

Sounds like a diamond eye. I think they are an extreme form of dragon scale, and I agree, they are super freaky. Yuck.

I really want a PK, but I might have to wait a while to get one unless I go with ordering online. The local aquarium sells them from time to time, apparently, but last I looked they just had VTs, CTs, and one HM.

Ohhhh, there is a name for that? Ugh, it was so freaky. My father was with me at the time and he told me if I got that fish, he'd be permanently freaked out every time he saw my fish tank.

If you order online, you should buy on Aquabid! I go drool over their pretties all the time and wish I had the money to buy a rosetail. That will be my next betta... a gorgeous rosetail. If I can get a white one, that's my ideal fish right there. Not that I don't love my boys right now! lol

I am nervous about buying on Aquabid. I would hate to get a sick fish, or not get a fish, or whatever. I am not sure I want to pay that much for a fish that will never be spawned, either. xD I just want a nice little PK. He can have colour or fin faults, as long as he is healthy. :)
