I was trying very, very hard to get out of the aquarist hobby (various reasons), when I decided I could handle one or two more betta, which my friend CJ who breeds was happy to help me out with. Then I went supply shopping. Isn't that how it always begins? And I found lots of fish I wanted to take home - but this was the guy (and monstrously over priced at that) that I just couldn't walk away from, as a 'koi' betta was on my 'fish bucketlist'.
His name is Tsukiko and he's now the happy owner of his very own heated 5g :3 I hope to update with the other two later this week.
