Time to gush!! I never realized how neat females are. I have seen lots of people say that they are fun to have and special in their own way, but I have never really found an explanation beyond that.
I got two girls two days ago, and I have to say, they are awesome!! They are both very sweet and inquisitive. If I put my finger in the water, they swim up to it and rub on me like they want me to pet them and just circle my finger. It's so funny!!
I posted pictures of them, but one didn't have a name yet so here is the update: I think I mentioned that the green one is named Tinkerbell, but so far I just call her "Tinky" a lot. This name is pretty fitting because she is very curious and sweet but can be fierce when she wants to be. The purple one is called Rue because she is insanely good at hiding and being sneaky. Everyone in my house has several times looked all around on the floor, the counter, etc thinking she jumped out because she is just that good. Once I even caught her crawling under her heater on the bottom of her bowl!! Silly little booger.
I can't wait for the pet store to get their betta shipment in tomorrow because I am usually the one who unpacks them and puts them out, which means that I get first pick and the ones I want don't even have to come in contact with the dirtiness of the pet store and I can just take them right home!!!
