When I got my fish, I was at our lfs, Pet Supermarket. We looked in the fish section. I found a bright pink fish, but it wasn't a betta. Then I looked at the bettas, and then I saw a male betta that was pink and he was beautiful, and he started to swim up to me. Then I begged my mom to get him and we did get Penelope, and I picked out a dolphin seashell ornament and pink and blue gravel. We kept him in my brother's small Critter Keeper at first, but then we moved him to my brother's 2.5 gallon tank after he upgraded to a 10 gallon. We got some more decorations and a plant. Penelope loves his new home, and his family and his food.
