So I went to Feeder's Supply a little while ago intending on just getting a few snails for the big tanks. But my dad went over and started looking at the bettas, and then I wanted to look at them, and we all know where the story goes from here...
I bought myself a little therapy betta. He's a double-tail, mottled blue with clear tips on his fins. He has a little piebald face for now, but it kinda looks like the blue is trying to encroach on that. He's so cute. I also bought him a Kritter Keeper, heater, plants, and little skull decoration/cave. I have these clear pebbles I got from my grandpa, and those are the substrate. It looks like a little treasure trove in there. I'll try and post pictures, but it would have to wait until tomorrow, unfortunately.
But anyway, I needed the little guy. I can't join the air force thanks to a degenerative brain condition I have. Maybe the holes up in there were the reason I thought I could in the first place... >.> But anyway, I'm now one of those losers I hate sitting around in my dad's apartment. I needed the therapy betta. Someone tell me I'm not bad for just impulse buying him because I was sad. D: I already love the little guy... He's exploring his new house and everything. IDK, I'm in a slight quandary over this. My therapy guy is causing me even more stress. >.>
Thanks for all the love, guys. No worries about the love and TLC, he'll be getting plenty of that. <3 I'm even moving my desk to a more advantageous spot for him to live in. Lol, the things we do for our fishies. You guys made me feel like less of a reject, haha. :3 I'm infinitely glad there's a place like this where people understand the need for therapy bettas. :o
EDIT Badjer, I might steal that quote in your siggy. I really like it... >.>
Haha go ahead Erin...it was on my biology teacher's desk and one day in the middle of class I went "OH! Finally I like something in this class!". For one who loves biology and wants to go into a bio-based career, I sure do hate that class.
Haha my 20 gal takes up most of my desk...fish can change your whole world!
Biology is what I was actually good at. Chemistry always killed me. It makes no sense, give me real words and real properties that don't change with every element/every row of the periodic table/every group. >.> Heathens.
I have two fish in a ten gallon on my nightstand, three in a twenty gallon on my dresser, and two in individual tanks on my desk. The 2.5 and the KK. Lol, my room is so full of fish.
The new guy has a name. It's Atreus, meaning fearless, because he has a curious, fearless attitude and I can tell he's gonna be a unique one already. c:
I only hate bio due to the teacher...I change next semester, but I hear the other teacher is just as bad. Hopefully my peers are wrong, I try not to judge teachers off their reputations. Chem I take next year, and I'm scared already!
I just have my 20 and my 2.5 right now, but I also have an empty KK and would like to perhaps have a sorority eventually. I have the perfect spot... XD
Love the name...actually, I love all your bettas names!
Thanks! I'm an etymology freak, which led to my love of Greek names and the Greek language, which led to my love of Greece period. Lol. All my fish have Greek names (Banana Fish's real name is Eosphoros). I think they're beautiful names. :3
A sorority sounds like a great plan! I tried one and my girls all tried to kill each other. >.> One of them ended up dying from the injuries later. Two were rehomed and are living happily with a friend of mine. And one is living on my nightstand. :o I think I just had too many incompatible personalities. I chose attentive, intelligent looking girls, and I think I also inadvertently chose four alphas. *facepalm*
