So Rain's tail still isn't getting worse. I'm going to be giving him his second dose of Kanaplex tomorrow (started using it on Wed when I noticed that AQ salt didn't seem to be working). Oh the little tyke, what a troublesome fella you are. I've done 4 water changes this week, hahaha. I enjoy doing it, but it's just a little disturbing that Rain's getting fin rot even though I try to keep the tank as clean as can be. And I don't know if the parasites are making a comeback or what, but I saw Rain flash twice against a silk plant a few days ago. *sigh* I'll deal with it after his fin rot problem is solved.
On a side note, I made my first Aquabid purchase! I can't believe it myself. I honestly wasn't planning on doing it. I usually go on Aquabid to snoop around, noting pretty bettas, my "dream betta(s)".They're usually Thailand bettas, so the transhipper thing is a real turn off so I'm sure I won't buy from them. Plus, I would always try to find fault in a fish, something that I didn't like about it so I wouldn't buy him. However, I decided to look at a US seller by the name of hopdiggity, and fell in love with her "white gold HMPK". His eyes had such spark (how I got that from a picture, I don't know), and the shape of his mouth was perfect to me. I kept thinking about him nonstop. Talked to my friends about it and stuff. Most of my friends were just worried about having him shipped to me. His auction ended last night at 2am, and I was losing sleep because I kept asking myself if I would regret it if I didn't get him. I assuring myself that if he wasn't bought and I saw him again, then it would be fate and I would get him. I also told myself that there will probably be other plakats like him in the future. Unfortunately, I didn't sleep well.
Saw him relisted today, and after talking to hopdiggity, I pressed the "buy it now" button. Going to pay her tomorrow, but I'm so excited! Here he is:
Going to have to make a petco run again to get everything set up, hahaha. I don't quite know where he'll be since I don't have much room, but I'll make space XD
Once I get this boyboy, my roommate will really think that I'm a fish-crazed lunatic XD
