Thanks for sharing your happy days, it made me smile. :)

It's refreshing to hear about a store that won't sell bettas rather than giving in to a quick buck and keeping them badly. It looks like a nice store, and wow, that white Koi is spectacular.

Also, congrats on your impending wedding! (you WILL survive it, LOL!)

Why oh why can't I have a fish store like that around here?

Sounds like a great couple of days indeed. And congrats on your engagement.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Why oh Why can't I be engaged to the man of my dreams? Haven't found a "man of my dreams"yet.

I am very limited with fish stores here too. There are a few small salt water shops and one that has fresh water but questionable practices that I don't trust and then there is Petco, and Petsmart. I have been doing Petsmart because at least the tanks are kept up and clean. Petco... wouldn't even consider buying from them. Oh and did I mention EXPENSIVE?.

Nope that was a customer that wouldn't get out of the way. The little girl in front of the dark tank was my neice the one that looked worn out and ready to collapse but still smiling!

I know I was so happy that I didn't see a single tiny bowl with a miserable creature.

Honestly I drove darn near two hours to get here so I get it. I would have never left that place if I could have hid somewhere.

Petco is a bit high. This place was selling all their fish half off. My dad went in twice (he loves fish and is a wonderful aquarist) and the man of your dreams will come. You will find your prince like I found mine who spoils me incesantly. Today he bought me fake flowers so I can make my own decorations and a new peace of drift wood for my non-betta tank.
