Weird how that one cup has so much algae and nastiness.

She is very pretty. I look forward to seeing pictures of her in clean water.

It really saddens me that these poor creatures are left to fendnfor themselves in such conditions, and yes I think she has been in there awhile. The price tag was dated 5/17/12 and by the looks of the water, it doesnt suprise me. Shes home now and settling in her tank. Its actually Nippys first tank. I wish I had the money to get her a bigger tank/accessories right now but hopefully she will be ok in this 1 gal for a few weeks. I will post her pic up in the betta pics section. Gotta think of a name for her too
