....we went into Petsmart yesterday to pick up a couple puppy things after little Tillys vet visit. Of course, I snuck off to take a peek at the betta shelves. I was a little sad to see just what was leftover of the guys and gals from about a week ago. They were quite sad looking, all of them were at least clamped, and several of them had finrot and SBD....and they REALLY needed a water change. :/
Anyway, not wanting to look at such a sad site any longer, I went off to look around elsewhere....and at the end of the fish section I noticed a cart filled with bags and cups.
There was a new shipment.
Poor employee. xD I think I surprised her, darting over there and kneeling down to look through all the new bettas. I was super excited. In my Petsmart the bettas sell out pretty quickly, so getting first pick of this absolutely GORGEOUS new shipment....I was just in fishy heaven. xD
They had these LOVELY PKs, a couple adorable marbles, a black copper, and a yellow dragon....I wanted them ALL! <3 But the one that really caught my attention was a cute little copper CT with these little solid pectorals(not sure if hes technically considdered an EE/Dumbo, but his pectorals are definitely bigger then any of my other boys!).
Now, I have a thing for CTs(and colored pectorals)....closely followed by PK/HMPKs, they are and have always been my very favorite tail type. But, finding a nice unique CT with decent form and finagle has proved to be quite the task around here.....CTs, from what I've seen, really seem to sell the best around here for some reason. xP Theres always only just four or five at most on the shelves whenever I go in.
So I just had to snatch him up.
I couldn't get many pictures of him. Hes not fond of the light on the tank hes currently hanging out in, and over all is a tad bit skiddish and shy....though after a couple days of shipping and then being bounced around a little coming home with me, I'm sure hes been though quite a lot. Hes more active and inquisitive today however, still getting used to eating his pellets though. xD
I'll get some better shots at a later time, but for now I hereby introduce....Gwaine!
