These are the current pictures I have at the moment. I am pretty sure it's a boy....But once I get better pics of his whole body, we'll know for sure. The tank is set but I am letting the temperature go down a little. I might need to adjust one of the plants but later on.
It was so hard choosing a fish because there were multiple that I thought were so pretty. The fish all looked to be in good health.
Bosco (named after Bosco from thirdwatch :P. It was that or Howie cuz of Howie from the backstreet boys) here (given that it's a male) practically called to me. He was so fast in his little bowl and constantly staring at me as I was looking at the different Betta's. There was also another later there shopping for a Betta and she was really friendly. She said she had two that lived for 2 years.
Bosco is acclimating in his bag in the tank right now. He's swimming around like a G and staring at me. He's probably wondering why he can't get out to go play in the sea anemone or his spongebob pineapple house (I wanted something different but the other hideout I saw was a little pricey and bigger so i wasn't sure if it'd fit). Besides swimming around a bit, he kind of stops for a minute or two and watches the TV. xD.
I love this fish already. As I sat in the walmart parking lot holding his bag and, he saw the shadow of my finger and was chasing it/nipping at it and I was sitting there laughing like a complete tard LOL.
All together, I spent $127 on my little Betta buddy.
The petstore clerk was really nice and helpful. She made sure we had a heater, good sized tank, things of that sort. She even gave us advice on feeding and what to feed them. Once my iPod charges, I'll upload some pictures I took at the petstore. :P
