i rescued a betta!

so today i decided to pop into my local pet shop (where i NEVER normally buy fish due to the number of dead and dying fish in their tanks...) anyway about a month ago i was there and there were these lovely little female bettas. i nearly bought one. when i went back a few weeks later the bettas, which had been looking ok when i last saw them, were dying. it was so sad. so i went there today with the idea in mind of rescuing a betta from a similar fate...
there were three female bettas in the tank - two greenish/red ones (sorry i don't know much about betta varieties so its the only description i can give) and one gorgeous little pink/orange one with black eyes. the pinky orange one was the liveliest and also the nicest looking, so i bought her. she cost $7.95 which i thought was a bit expensive, but it was worth it...she has so much character! she's very inquisitive and has to peck at everything she sees. she especially likes attacking the snails. i even saw her eating some of the baby ones, which is great...i now have biological snail control!

i've put her in my spare 6 gallon tank. it has a heater but no filter. i know that's not good, but my only spare filter is an internal power filter which i recently discovered, to my detriment, is...um...electrically unsafe. (no wonder my cory died when i put him in that tank..zapped by 240 volts...) and i was wondering why my finger was tingling when i put it in the tank!

i've decided to name my new betta 'flame' on account of her colouring. if anyone can tell me what variety of betta she is i'd appreciate it :) by the way, this little fish is tiny. she's like an inch long..hehehe!
sorry the pics are so blurry, its hard to take pictures of her. i tried flash but they came out looking weird..
