I had 5 minutes in the store, helping my parent pick out dog food, and of course I had to look at the bettas. Saw the tiny baby bettas and decided I wasn't walking out of there without one, but they were all so sick looking that I didn't think they would survive the ride home. I literally had $3 with me so I went to look at the female bettas. There was this pale mint green/blue female that immediately caught my attention. But I didn't catch hers. She ignored me completely, so I looked at the one above her on the shelf. This girl was extremely pale, she had vertical stress stripes and was not looking good. But when I put my finger up to her cup, she focused on it and started following it. Then she looked out past my finger at my face, and I was done for. Walked out with her in one hand and $.13 in my pocket.
I setup the only spare tank I had, a half gallon. Took out the gravel so there's only her and a small silk plant. She has colored up nicely, she's a pretty aqua blue. I really like her. Need name suggestions. She is barely an inch long at the moment.
I am upgrading the tank as soon as I get some allowance. :) <3
Hope you enjoy.
