So, I went to walmart today looking for a rubbermaid tub or a tank for my 3 baby fry from 1fish2fish. I saw a 10 gallon for $12.87 and a 1 gallon starter kit for $7.97 with gravel, goldfish food, tap water cleaner, a net, and the tank. I chose the 1 gallon to start just for now.
I wandered over to the fish, pretty pretty fish... Betta Fish...x.x... I saw 3 or 4 females, 2-3 dark green/grey and 1 white female, and then one rack lower I see him.. A cute little red crowntail male, small and adorable.. I go back to the tanks and then to him, show him to my mom, Leave him on the rack.. Get in line and last minute "Mom, I'll pay for everything if you let me get that fish." ..She thinks.. "Okay." and I rush back, grab him, walk away then realize I forgot betta food x.x... Go back and get food, then get in line and spend abut $45-$50 on everything just to have my lil man <3.
I've named him Red after Hell Boy (Liz calls him Red). I think he might be a dragon as he has these silver scales over the red ones, there really small. I feel bad as he's in that small tank, but I'm going to upgrade him in about a week or 2, smale for my baby fry. Oh, forgot to mention that Reds' tank has no heater, but I put a heating pad under it to keep him warm. <3 God I love this guy. His water was kind of dirty, I just couldn't leave him. He flared at me in the car, I actually put him in my jacket to keep him warm. I feel bad that I left the females behind though v.v.. Maybe I can go back for them later.
I'm surprised though - You could tell these walmart betta were babies/young betta. Healthy considering the water is a bit cool and the water should be changed more. I'm a bit happy to say that's my walmart :3.
I hope this picture shows o.o..
