At least it seemed like he had a happy home. When was the last photo taken of him?
- Did you have any issues with torn fins from hyperactivity?
I stopped by Petco yesterday after I drove through a white out type blizzard. Took a stroll through their store, and found the betta section. Most if not all their 20 bettas were dead/covered in ich spots.
No baby bettas for sale.
Anyway, the fun part was when I was wandering around the driftwood section, I overheard another customer purchasing food for his crestie gecko & before he left, he stopped by the betta accessories.
I was wondering why he was in that section, & found out he's a betta owner & his fish came with a $50-60 price tag at a local store. From the way it's described, it's most likely a red halfmoon.
I've been keeping my eyes out for someone who might offer a good home for juvies and I couldn't believe my luck. I offered Wayne one of my 3 month old bettas if his trusty fish EVER passes on.
His betta is 6 years old!!
Unfortunately when I finally arrived home @ 2am, Wayne sent his text to the wrong number.
A little disheartening when I didn't see the message, but all is not lost.
I'll have to track him down through the fish place he purchased his betta from. I'm pretty sure his betta was already 5-6 months old when he first purchased it. Wayne is VERY good friends with the owner & I was planning to stop by the NEW location to see firsthand what type of livestock they offer.
I'm excited to have found a new home for one of my juvies.
- If you were me, would call the store or wait till you visit to chat with the owner?
Reggie, what are you planning to house in Philly's tank?
