On December 18th, Mikel and I stopped by Petco, and I fell in love with this cute little baby betta who reminded me of a rainbow, and this poor little sick baby who had the most gorgeous color out of the bunch. The sick one was the biggest of the babies available, and no matter what this poor little thing did, it couldn't totally submerge to swim around the cup.
We ended up buying both of them (despite my promise of "only one" to get him into the store), and named the rainbow one Skerries, and the larger one Archipelago. I was so worried that Archi was going to die when we got them home, about 2 days of good food, and clean water later, Archi recovered from whatever issue "it" had.
But here are the before and after pictures:
