So today ended quite unexpectedly, because when I went to the store to pick up a bag of food for my guinea pigs, I also walked out with a beautiful new Betta. It was sort of an impulse buy, because he just kept staring at me and I couldn't help myself (I know I'm not alone here though, being on a site of Betta enthusiasts!).
Besides, I just couldn't let someone else who doesn't know the proper care of Bettas pick up such a gorgeous fish and possibly mistreat him (It sounds kinda mean but I couldn't bear the thought of it).
I had to do a little convincing with my parents, but I was able to do it! I had a spare 10 gallon that I could split three ways, and I just had to clean it up and move my other fish (George and October) out of their 5.5 gallon. The only extra cost was the four dollars for my new Betta, Patriot!
I'm really happy to have made some nice finds at pet stores. This makes my third Betta along with my Cambodian and my Mustard Gas.
(Sorry if my pictures are huge!)
October decided to photobomb one picture
