Ok, sooooooo......I went to Petco yesterday intending to get some gravel and a plant for my new 5 gal that is cycling right now.
Well....I got the gravel and plant, but my mom got me a little something extra....you've probably already guessed but I got a new betta! I actually didn't want to get one because the tank isn't done cycling, but she peer pressured me into it
. They had a new shipment in and that little bit of resistance I had just snapped when she insisted.
So here he is. We haven't named him yet, but he's temporarily in a gallon vase sitting in the heated 5 gal. tank unil it's done cycling which should be really soon. He looks really young and it's sad because his fins actually look like they've grown curled from being in a tiny cup. But he is PURPLE! He's already building little bubble nests around the top of his vase
The worst thing is that they had a GORGEOUS mustard gas HM, and an AWESOME white and red dragon HM there too! Not to mention a cute but pathetic looking cambodian female. I've been scheming all day trying to go back and get at least 2 of them, but alas I need a heater for my empty 10 gallon which is soooo frusturating because I have everything else
. But then I'd need to cycle it and I don't know how that would work.....I just don't want to let that mustard gas go!
