My sorority blew up... I lost a girl to unknown causes and another was quickly falling ill. I lost all sanity and decided what was best- giving them a second chance at life. I returned them to my LPS (they'll be bought in no time, we can rarely ever keep girls in stock here.)
But I found what is basically as close to my dream betta as I'll ever get. He's a double tail halfmoon, with mostly solid red-orange. He doesn't have any markings, but he has a little bit of grey on his fins. He's super sweet at has two little ghost shrimp buddies now.
I've named him Vilkas! (After Farkas's brother in The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim)
His shrimp will be called Faendal 1 and 2, after the annoying elf you meet in the game.
I'm really sad about the girls, but it's less stressful this way.
And I found the boy I've wanted for EVER.
