So, Petco is right across the parking lot from my dentists office....and while I generally don't go in because my Petco is rather small and sparse, I decided to go ahead and pop in to pick up some plants for my 10 gallon.
I did a quick sweep of the betta-end-cap....nothing special; your standard blues, reds, multis, ext along with a few others I had seen three weeks prior when I bought Sebastian....but when I headed down the plant isle I discovered a whole other little shelf of bettas that I had never even known existed...
...And one caught my eye...xD
And with that, I proudly introduce my newest addition; Mephisto Pheles!
The flash makes him look more blue....but in person hes much more of a pale purple/lavender color.
I had seen a few bettas with this purpley coloring around my area, but I had always either ended up passing them for another or just didn't have the room. However, recently I realized that I had the perfect name for a betta of that coloring; Mephisto Pheles
, a character(and my favorite)from the anime/manga Ao no/Blue Exorcist. <3 the name was originally intended for a DT boy I'd spotted at Petsmart when I got Finnian, but I knew after almost three weeks hes most likely gone....fish at my Petsmart go very quickly....so I decided to go ahead and snatch this Delta boy up while I could :)
And he seems to be settling in just fine xD
Been here just a few hours and already nesting. Such a strange little thing he is xD Lol
Anywho....sorry for my word spam xD I get a little carried away, lol. I'll shut up now, enjoy the pics!
