Getting a gang valve for our air pump so that our bubbler wouldn't blow away our new bettas that we got on Monday from aquabid. And we (PeppermintHippo and I) paused to look at the cups, which are always quite pathetic at our Petco--Petsmart near us is great but the cups at Petco are so icky. (This one was no exception, his water was at around 3ppm ammonia)
And then I saw this guy...and he was the pattern and coloring that I was wanting for my next betta *in a few months or more down the road*. And he kept staring at me with his little fishy face and PeppermintHippo played a mean devil's advocate and before long I found myself walking out with him, a 5 gallon critter keeper and all the things I needed to start up a new unexpected tank. >.< I hadn't planned on getting one less than a week after my new pretty boy from Thailand!
But, without further ado, meet Domino! A blue and white koi-ish style double tail.
