Two new boys-fuming

sorry for the story but it goes with how i ended up with two new boys


Went to my fav fish store today I love them cause there are NOOO betta cups all there betta are free swimming in community tanks the guy knows me so when i walk in he says ..what are you looking for today and i responded...bettas like usual to whish he replys ..we dont have any right now....None at all?? thats hard to believe. He then says ..Well we do have these two beaten up brown ones nothing to speak of really * steam starts building behind my eyes * so I walk off in search of these "brown" betta ...I glance into the emerald barb tank as I pass cause there pretty and I like green and OMG theres on of the betta ripped to shreads desprately hiding behind a log not enough fin to tell what type he is and CLEARLY a reddish/violet I had to put my finger against the glass and talk to him just to get his attention and he very scardly swam out inspected my finger then ran and hid again...so I wander on looking for the other guy and lo and behold two tanks over with tiger barbs!! and a bright blue/red* that built up steam pours out of my ears * as I see him in little better condition then his " brother" well I marched up to the desk and said I"LL TAKE THOSE TWO THEY OBVIOUSLY NEED SOME TLC!! and he says...oh you found them ha i guess barbs and bettas dont mix they look aweful...oh my lord now if you knew me you'de know how hard it was for me to leave that store without the police being called to escort me out! Well I get them out in the sunlight and see there true colors and there beautiful ( of course ) more stress stripes then my 8 females put together on a bad day and hardly any fins...well there home now in clean,warm salted water there own private condos and awaiting names....nothing much to speak of...have you looked in the mirrior lately!!

Good thing you got them before they didnt have a fin left to swim with! (a leg to stand on... get it?) But really... you guys (girls) who save these poor fish from their doomed conditions are GREAT! I wish I could do it too. And when I can... you know I will!

Poor babies. How could someone put them with such notorious fin nippers? Airheads.
