Love your sorority tank, @BettaSplendid . So many gorgeous girls. ;) Yesterday I finally managed to take a new rescue home after seeing him at Petco for far over three months. I think he's a dragon scale veiltail. (or that's what his wore-out cup was labeled) He reminds me a little of your Twinkie- pink fins, sweet personality.

Oh sweet boy, 3 months. He is pretty. Smoothie was labeled the same, dragon scale veiltail, but he got scooped up by me quickly after just arriving at Petsmart. He was exactly what I was looking for!

Oh how we miss Twinkie! He had an amazing personality.

Yeah Twinkie seemed like a super special and amazing little guy. he was a great introduction to the hobby, too. Did you ever get another pink betta sort of like him? there's another like Midas at Petco but with longer fins and without the managed Mi's has.

Well Midas has been renamed Caspar by my mom. It means Treasure, and treasure he is!

I haven't seen another like Twinkie. Not in person anyways. He was bubblegum pink and developed plum colored spots on his fins, plus he had amazing blue eyes. And he was a great listener. He made eye contact while you talk to him. He loved to watch Daughter draw.

Smoothie was the closest I could find. He is more Barbie aisle pink with silver "wash" over his body. His eyes are dark. He has a typical betta personality.




Pokey is 7 weeks. He has started putting his hands together so I am going to see if he can hold a toy today. He does this funny thing where he tries to suck his thumb but his thumb is trapped between his pointer finger and middle finger. So cute! See:




I made stew yesterday and was so impressed with my cabbage, it looked like a turtle!
Appreciate it. lol

Can't believe Pokey is 7 weeks already! He is the cutest with his little fingers bunched up. Is your daughter getting more used to him now? Love the cabbage. It does look just like a turtle!! I do things like that for grandson. Makes lunch or dinner fun!

Every fish deserves a Chance

Well....she doesn't scowl at him anymore, but I wouldn't trust her alone with him, lets say that. She has said things along the lines of "wouldn't it be funny if such and such happened to Colt" something that hurt him, I don't remember what it was now. Son on the otherhand still loves him. If I need my hands free for cooking or whatever and ask, "will you hold him?" I get a most enthusiastic, "yEEEEsssss!" and he cheerfully comes and gets his brother and whisks him away singing and bouncing. Pokey LOVES him. Huge smile. It is precious. They already have quite the bond. I was able to deep clean 2 tanks even while Son played with Pokey for over an hour. I was looking for the baby cory cat. Sadly, I never found him.

Sometimes corys disappear and show up later. They're funny little fish. Do yours ever startle and go crashing into the glass at 100 miles an hour? Mine do sometimes when i dash into my room or turn the lights on in the morning, but placing my hand against the glass they're running into helps. I need to deep-clean my tanks so badly. I want to scrub the walls and get all the brown algae off that clouds up the sides but it is such a pain because the scrubber scares the fish and uproots the plants... sigh.
Going from the baby to middle child is rough, I guess. I'm sure she'll warm up to being a big sister sometime... hopefully. That's pretty hilarious about the contrast between your two older kiddos. I wonder if you had a girl if sister would be very enthused. Kids are characters.
