I was derping around petco today, waiting for my haircut appointment. I, of course, stalked all the betta in the cups and found a few wonderful DTs! I didn't want any but I asked myself "Wouldn't it be great to have a double tail? They are so beautiful!" I left the store empty handed.
Now it was time to clean my fish tanks. I was searching for a cup for the fish and come across something odd. There was a petco cover of a HMDT. "I don't own a DT, why do I own this?" I wonder as I find the cup. Then it hit me! I only have one male betta I got a Petco and he is a HM. I remember posting my first time here "I got my fist betta!" in the forums with a beautiful picture of him. One of the first comments asked if he was a DT, I said of course not! I clearly didn't look at his label!
I took a look at Ula and made him flare and investigated him. HE IS A DT! How did I not notice this before? His tail is not completely split but it is. NO WAY! I'VE HAD HIM OVER A YEAR!! Wow, I'm blind. He is the beauty in my profile pic!
I guess I don't need to buy a DT because I've had one all this time!
I LOVE YOU ULA, YOU CRAZY TAIL BITING, FIGHTER!
