Oh, I'm such a sucker for bettas!
I went to my LFS again today and here are all of the ones I wished that I could take home:
VT boy with majorly nipped fins, they had him with the lemon tetras!
Other VT boy with nipped fins, but this one was BLIND!! (put with angel fish)
this was a VT boy that just didn't look good. I think he had fin rot or something..
Beautiful blue VT boy, nothing seemed to be wrong, as he was with guppies. :)
and last but not least, that pineapple VT I showed you a picture of last time I went to my LFS.
I'd show you a new picture of that little wild-type girl, but she wouldn't come out for a good picture. (she's camera-shy) :)
GRRRRRRRR!!! I wish that I had not brought this cursed ban upon myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!
please do not blame my LFS for the conditions of those three bettas, those were the only ones that were actually in bad shape out of about 80 bettas. (plus, as you may know, I have a soft spot for sick/injured things, so of course I wanted those ones) the owner has a lot on his plate, and only one employee. he also has a LOT of fish to keep up with. those bettas with nipped fins were the only ones that were with unsuitable tank mates, and there were really no more tanks that he could put bettas in. (all of the rest had some sort of shark or chichlid)
On another subject, I shot a nice picture of little Merlin today: (sorry, it's a bit dark)
I also got a nice one of peach, he was flaring at my camera :)
and just to not leave her out, here's one of Winter I took a while ago, before I had Merlin:
Until next time, ~Saphira
