So, last weekend I spent out of town with my girlfriend(she lives about an hour away)so that we could go to TARDIS Chicago on Saturday, but Friday we of course went out and about and did a little black Friday shopping around her town. When we drove up to Target, a noticed that there was a Petsmart a few stores down the little strip.....and of course being the fish-crazy dork I am practically dragged her in to go look around. xD
Its a really good thing shes so understanding.....
It actually took us a bit to find the Bettas. They were on a back end cap in the small little Petsmart and there were just a few left, maybe twenty or so. There were some very cute ones, some lovely multi-marble HMPKS, a gray marble HMPK(that I ALMOST left with...but he didn't quite call to me), a TINY peachy/pink baby DT, an adorable little Chocolate female....
And then there was Sherlock.
He was a positively STRIKING dark blue. We both gasped aloud when I picked up his cup, I swear. There was absolutely no way I was leaving without him....he was just gorgeous, and my girlfriend was completely entranced with him.
So I shelled out a little of my convention cash and bought him. xD There was just no way I could leave him behind. And let me tell you, he was quite the little trooper! Put up with a lot that weekend. It was FREEZING the night I bought him, so I had to tuck his cup in my scarf when we went outside, he had to sit with us in Target for a while while we waited for my girlfriends brother, and THEN he had to hang out in his cup for a couple of days and endure a couple of trips in a bouncy car until I brought him home......but all the while he was a spunky, inquisitive little thing! xD
I wanted to wait until I got his skull and set up his tank a little more to my liking until I got pictures and introduced him....otherwise I would have posted a thread a little sooner, but, here he is! xD Adorable and blue and spunky as ever! Not too good at posing for the camera though. ;P
This weekend I hope to get him a nice little Zebra Nerite to name Watson. Every Sherlock needs a Watson. xD So there might be some more pictures added later....but for now, enough of my rambling. Enjoy the pics!
