and, i spelled babby right. 8U it's a Tumblr thing. xD
i've been wanting a new boy or girl for a while now. having 8 bettas felt funny. lol Ma wanted to go get her fake nails taken off, so she offered to take me to the pet store today. i wasn't expecting much, since it's Tuesday. they get the new shipment in tomorrow, so i was like 'they'll have generic reds or blue with red wash veils...'. was gonna ask to go again Thursday. but, whatever. :B went in, looked around at the new layout, then headed right for where they keep the boys.
with the tiniest, most pathetic looking clamped veil out there. thought he was a stressed red at first, and told him if i didn't already have a red, i'd get him. passed him up. went to see if they had girls, which they didn't(didn't think so. girls go fast because of wannabe breeders), mocked the koi a bit(mimicked their fish-face), oogled some fish i don't normally look at (they had teeny little rainbow sharks. >w< and these HUGE mollies! O-o), then was drawn back to that cup.
took another good look at just how pitiful he was. tiny, clamped, a touch of fin rot...
and a lovely red-orange. more orange, now that he's settled in a bit. still VERY clamped, though. poor bby.... super shy right now, too. was wiggling up a storm in his cup, now he's shy in his pretty tank. :U
meet Jaecar. pronounced "Yay-car". :B it's German, after a good friend's RP character. sweet guy, hoping his sweetness will rub off on this boy.
