It's been a long time since I've visited this site, but I just wanted to share the new addition to my betta family. I was looking at the bettas at petsmart while I waited for the employee to scoop out my bearded dragon's crickets (it takes a long time, I need a lot XD). I saw this little guy and he was just too pretty to leave there and I had an empty 2.5 at home.
At some point I tried selling that tank because I knew how tempting it would be for me to find something to put in it, but for some reason my craigslist listing was flagged and I never got around to posting it again.
So here I am with a new betta who I named Chimmer (pronounced shimmer). I named after Jason Chimera of the Washington Capitals....and because he actually shimmers.
