Thats riiiiiiiiiiiight, another lovely little boy has been added to my fishy family!
Ahh, I really shouldn't have a reptile....going in every week-every other week to get live food for my Leo is just like dangling bacon in front of a puppy; how am I supposed to resist?! Haha, thankfully I have room.....I don't know WHAT I'll do when I don't have any more space xD
Anywho.....on to the actual fish.
Walking into my Petsmart today, besty in tow, I gravitate immediately towards the betta end cap, thinking that arriving a couple of days after shipment day would provide a much more interesting and variety of stock then my usual Saturday visit....sadly, no such luck. We were greeted with my Petsmarts standard sparse and over-all standard selection of bettas(that being mostly the normal colors and varietys you would expect to see everywhere with a couple of slightly unusual finds lurking on the shelves)in the dirtiest, blueist cups I have ever seen there. It was quite.....sad really.
I thought perhaps initially I'd get a rescue, something to keep me a little busy while everyone goes back to school and my mom goes back to work, but none of them were really....rescue-worthy. They didn't look happy, but none of them appeared particularly sickly either really.
So I turned my attention to searching for something that I had been looking for for a while now; an Arthur fish to match my little Merlin.....so I started to sift though the cups a little more thoroughly. I found a couple of nice little boys I kinda wanted, so I set them towards the back in the hopes that they might be there next week when I go for my Birthday shopping trip.....but hidden away in the back of the bottom shelf with all the VTs, I finally found my boy.
Introducing....Prince/King Arthur Pendragon(Or 'Oblivious ArthurFish'.....but thats a bit of an inside joke xD)!
Theres quite a few of them in there with him and Merlin....because, well, Arthur and Merlin~
Anywho....I originally wanted to get Arthur as a CT....but I could never find any CTs that were quite THAT red, much to my annoyance...but oh well xD This guy fits the version of Arthur hes named after quite perfectly~
But his cup, ugh....it was so dirty that when I opened the lid I could SMELL the ammonia. 8/ I didn't think to get pictures of him in it until I got him out of it....lol...but I did get pictures before I rinsed the cup out. I mean, just look how much waste is just...THERE!
Buuuuuuuuut enough of my rambling. xD Haha, I hope you guys enjoy the pictures!
