Okay, so I just got back from a petstore. (I'm not going to name them.) ALL of the Betta fish their are mislabeled as far as my mother and I can tell. Babies called adults, adults called babies, fish labeled two different fin types. My mother just spent the last half hour arguing with the lady until we final got our new little friend.
You should have seen the fish there, some of them were in the little cups with so much dead skins and putrid food and feces on the bottom.
I'm not trying to slander them or anything, it's just looking at how deplorable things are really makes me want use curse words right and left. UGHH...
And my day's been sour ever since, I felt down our flight of stairs with my new little friend in my hands. I'm glad I saved him at just the last moment as I fell otherwise he would have been a goner. ):( My ankle took some damage though. DX
The poor thing, his fins are slightly shredded. He really a beautiful fish though, with all of his colors, too. Here's a picture of him: (He's unnamed as of right now, he might get named Lightning, but I'm not quite sure yet.) Also, they're a little blurry, and you can't see all of his colors like you would in the light. But I still think he looks stunning, the poor thing.
