Red face Angels in Manhattan

SO! today, me and Ma went to the pet store to get my late birthday present: a betta for the 10 gallon. i *wanted* a female, because my tank is mostly filled with plastic plants. but they didn't have any females. :I sadface.

i went and looked at the males, instead. LOTS of dals! *o* i *love* dals! i was looking at each and every one, being pickier than i should have. saw the neatest male, who had a very interesting tail defect that made him look like the fabled Lyre-tail, but i already have a red and a red-orange, and wanted something different. they also had this tiny little CT, and i totally would have gotten him, but my water hates CTs. ;3;

then, i spotted the most interesting Dal there. he was spunky, and wiggling, and doing that cute mouth thing at me. and his SPOTS! i kept looking, despite how i was drawn to him, but, kept coming back. i *had* to take him home. on the way home, i was thinking of a name. remembered that i wanted to do a Doctor Who themed name, and kept trying out names in my head.

Pond didn't work out.
neither did TARDIS, or Matt, or Tennant, or Rory, Dalek....

Manhattan. perfect. was gonna do Manny for short, but my dog's name in Mandy, and she gets confused. xD so, meet Manhattan:

What a little beauty you found :) I love your tank, I am sure he will be very happy in there with all 10 gallons to himself!

Love the fish I also like he heater saves space be warned though the color scale he has it makes it harder to spot parasites.

he's so cute (and I also love doctor who, can't wait for the new companion). Be careful with all the plastic plants, they'll likely shred his fins. Fabric/silk plants are the safest :)

:B they're very soft plastic. VERY soft. :V someone who keeps bettas gave them to me, and i'm sure she wouldn't give me something that'd hurt him. ;3;

i'm happy to report that Manhattan built a bubble nest already! he's already settled in and strutting his stuff! :3

For a minute I thought you were gonna post pics of weeping angels and I'm like OMG. What about the name "Doctor"? Not that you would change it but for another fish
