Haha, thanks guys!! xD
Oh my goodness, a discount when you buy three?! Oh geez....hopefully the stores around here don't have those discounts! I'd be over 20 bettas before the end of he year!!
I hope your little rescue pulls though too!! Its always so satisfying, watching the ones in not so great health heal and turn into the gorgeous fish they're meant to be. x3
Actually, I ALMOST walked out without him. I had kinda wanted to get a baby betta, raise it up and make that my Christmas/winter project since lately I'd been missing my babies and feeling a little sentimental(when I bred a few years back, my babies were born around this time and hatched December 3rd)....which I'll still probably, do, but the few babies they had didn't really call to me. I walked around the betta shelves a couple of times, trying to talk myself out of this guy.....but the second time I leaned down to look at him I knew there was no way I was walking out of the store without him. xD So, I go him and my plants, hid him in my bag after paying, and snuck him home.
Oh! And actually, I have a bit of a similar story...
I informed my girlfriend though text of my most recent purchase by saying "So, I went into Petco alone..." And because she knows me WAY too well, I got the response of "Oh god, how many fish?"
I assured her it was just one and sent her a picture, and her reaction was....mind, put slightly less appropriately and elegantly "Holy crap thats a beautiful fish.". xD Pretty sure he won her over as well. <3
