I got a new boy yesterday! <3
he loves his new tank! when i first put him in he would go back and forth between the heater and thermometer, he's so curious :) he loves to swim around and explore, i might buy him a taller plant to poke at soon, he came from a tank full of tiny fishies to entertain him, so i'm hoping he doesn't get bored!
i think he's so beautiful; he looks like a cloud, or a fairy, that's floating along the water <3 a graceful name would probably suit him better, but idk, i named him darby :D
also, his color looks different in different lighting! sometimes his scales shine purple, and other times they shine blue! the prettiest is when it's two colors at once ^_^
the story of how i found him is actually kind of funny, too! so i was looking for a new fishy friend because my former one had passed on... lo and behold, almost every betta in pet city (except for about 3 solid reds) had the EXACT SAME COLOR as my last fishy! i didn't really want a fish that looked exactly like him right after he died :( so after a while of staring at them one of the staff came over and asked if i needed help. i told him about how they all looked like my last fish, so he mentioned a pale colored betta they had at the front of the shop!! i immediately fell in love, he was so active and so!! so!! pretty!! <3 i can't wait for him to settle into his new home <3
edit: the pictures didn't work :'O i'll have to direct link them
