So I went to Big Als Aquarium to look for penicillin for Shota's fin rot with my boyfriend. While we were there, we wandered over to the betta fish section (he was reluctant to do so) to have a look at the stock they had.
And they had some beautiful half moons on display and I've always wanted one. I tried to resist the idea of getting one at first, especially with me being poor and having to mooch money off him to buy the medicine, but collapsed under my own impulsiveness and begged him to buy me one.
He resisted at first but ultimately caved under my awesomeness :D I had trouble choosing, they had three HMs, one Red, one blue and white marble and this gorgeous blue-green which they claimed to be a DTHM O_o.
It was a hard choice, but I chose the blue-green, even though I really liked the marble one (but my BF didn't though).
:D He's really pretty, and it's kind of a shame my camera sucks so much and I couldn't take a proper picture of him. He's kinda metallic and the gradient from green to blue in his tail is just gorgeous.
I put him in Shota's 3 gallon since he won't be going back there. After he recovers from his fin rot I'll have to put him in a smaller tank that's easier to clean since his low resistance to the disease will mean I'll have to do water changes more often, and doing a 3 gallon daily would be a lot of work and a waste to leave empty.
But he's still settling in to his new home. He's always hiding D': and seems a bit lethargic so I'm keeping a close eye on him. I'll have to figure out what I can do with his filter though since the suction is too strong and already almost damaged his fins.
I haven't come up with a name yet :) but I think I'll come up with it once I have a better feel for his personality!
But other than that, I took some pictures of my girls. ): Shota's not in a good condition to take nice pictures of at the moment >.<;
Here's Nya :)
And Kyu xD
