Ever seen a betta in a store or online that just called to you, but the circumstances just weren't right? This thread is for those bettas. I'll start.
First is a multicoloured crowntail I saw on my most recent visit to Petsmart last Tuesday. The betta sale was still going on and they had way too many worse for wear bettas sitting on the shelves. He was without a doubt the most beautiful fish in the store. When I lifted his cup to get a better look at him, he had the most indignant expression on his face like he knew he deserved to be somewhere much nicer. (I am definitely anthropomorphizing, but don't we all?) This was the day after telling another member on this site that I wanted to steal their betta who looked just like him too.
Early in the month, at the same store, I saw these two veiltails. One was an orange with splashes of blue, and two was a pink/purple/lavender with silvery fins. I really do regret leaving these two behind. I was literally bringing them up to the register to pay for them when I stopped myself.
