I Need To Be Banned From PetCo!

I was going to return a tank stand and of course had some time to kill while they got someone up there and well I wondered into the fish section yet again and fell in love with a beautiful dark blue female betta. I had no intentions of getting another female since I already have four, plus two males, but she is so pretty, a very dark blue, but shines like a new penny. I couldn't help myself so I brought her home.

My tank stand was thirty seven dollars and after picking up my new girl, I saw some decor that I wanted and then opted to pick up a bigger tank for one of my male bettas, Jack. He's moving on up from a 2.5 tank to a 5.5 and the new girl, Athena is going into the 2.5. I ended up getting five bucks back from my return once I bought all the new goodies, lol.

I swear I'm addicted to these fish, I can't help it.

I have an all female tank going, but they were put in there together a few weeks ago and I hate to toss Athena in there for them to ravage, so she's getting her own space until I upgrade to a 55 gallon later in the year.

I can relate to this betta addiction, i have it my self. Yesterday also in the fish section i fell in love with two more girls and believe me when i tell you i allready have anough. Female sounds beautifull. Good luck with her. She is very lucky to go from a tiny cup to a 55 gal mannsion.

(Blessings to you and all you're bettas)

hi
fish stores are like a drug,they really are.
i'm trying to pursuade mine to do a loyalty card,
as that's where some of my wages go,i think they should give me
something back lol
i have been in for just food and promised faithfully not to look in the fish
section,however once i get in there i just can't resist.
and now i have 10 very happy rummy nosed tetras.

See I went in yesterday and didn't see any females that caught my eye, but Athena was different, they must have just put her out because she wasn't there yesterday.

I know most people adore the males, but I've come to really love the females, my other girls have such personalities.

Not yet, I have a good camera, but I can't get a decent picture of the fish, the pictures always come out blurry. Any tips on taking good pictures?

come out blurry,perhaps you are a little close to the aquarium ?
i find that taking pictures at night with the tank light on,but
the house lights off,gives a good picture.
it could be the settings on the camra it's self,
i can't help with that one though sorry.

my personal opinion is that petco isnt so great.
again thats my personal opinion- maybe its because the one 5 minutes from my house is a dump and id rather go to an actual fish store with more selection.
for a better picture see if your camera has a "macro" setting, if it does this setting will take close up pictures very clear. try it out!

PetCo is the only place in my area who does sell female bettas, we do have a local fish store that sells a wide variety of fish, but not female bettas. I did pick up my Jack from that place and he's done just fine and I usually buy the other types of fish from there, I have two gold white cloud fish, two sunburst platies, two neon tetras, and two red swordtails from the place.

All my Bettas, aside from Jack and George come from PetCo though. So far, I have no complaints.
