Well I've done it! I've taken the plunge after a short time of being betta-less, I now have a new betta. He was sitting in a 2 gallon tank on the floor at a local petshop. I nearly past him over twice but saw him the third time I looked. When I get a decent camera I'll take pictures of him. He's adorable. His body and fins is a mixture of milky white and a very odd yellow-ish color. The best way I can describe it is that he looks like cake mixing lol.
Oh, and he's the bost BAMF fish of all time...which is why his name is Commander Shepard :)
