While it has only been a few days since Jalen died, I refuse to have a tank sitting idly in my house while bettas sit in cups on shelves. So I went out searching for a new occupant.
And I found the most crowntail that was labeled as a black orchid and I believe
is a black orchid, although tell me if I'm wrong. I've wanted a dark crowntail for who knows how long, but he was $20 (heart attack) and I decided to see if I could find any sickly fish at the pet stores around here first.
Well they must have all gotten new stock because they were all pretty healthy except for a few fin biters. So I decided to swallow my pride and hand over my $20 because there was no way I was passing up that boy. One of the stock clerks gave me a $2 off coupon though, so there's that.
He's pretty healthy-looking and active, which is shocking considering how skank his water is. He's waiting in his cup while his tank water gets to room temp. I snapped a few pictures but he's a bit pale in them. The car ride freaked him out lol. I'll put them up in a sec.
