Two new bettas today!

I was doing my shopping at walmart today, of coarse I had to walk through the fish section. They had three bettas sitting in brown poop water. Two where worst than the other, and I just could not leave them there.
They where not exactly pretty, so I was afraid they would just sit there and die in that nasty water.
One of them I put in my 10gal Qt tank, the other is in a 1gal tank I picked up for $10.00. The one in the 1gal is a tiny white female. Hoping she will grow a little then I will try her out in one of my community tanks. For now she is fine or at least a lot better off. She is actualy acting alot more happy than the male in the 10gal.
Note to self, Don't walk through Walmarts fish dept! I don't need anymore fish!

Congrats on your two new bettas! :) It will take a few days for them to adjust but I'm sure they'll be fine in nice, clean water.What does the male look like?

His fins are a baby blue color. His body is white with light blue specks.
He is not sure what to think of his tank yet, but the female is feeling right at home.

a 20 gallon tank I had that needed something in it, :)

Been seriously contemplating buying 6 more tanks I saw the other day, I think they were 10 gallons ea.

Going to Walmarts here in a little bit and I have a funny feeling I'll be bringing more Betta's home,,, My bloods been itching all night,
