Good News & Bad News

Bad News First?

I lost Aslan a few days ago. He needed to go, but it was painful watching him die :/ Dropsy sucks! He was a good fish.

More bad news; Today I was at Walmart and I wandered over to the fishy section and found this poor guy



I doubt my bringing him home could have done anything. He wasn't really moving at all. It was pretty ridiculous. I tried to find an employee in the pet section to ask them why it was ok to keep a fish in those conditions but I couldn't find anyone. So, of course, I left a note on the poor kiddo's container that said how disgusting this is and how terrible it is to put a fish through that. I doubt he made it through the afternoon. :/


Okay. For the good news. I couldn't help myself from rescuing a couple of other guys that at least looked rescue-able (word?). It's impossible to not bring one home if you have room for it and if I could have taken them all I would have.

The lighter of the two is much spunkier than the red. I hope they both make it. They are being acclimated to the new tank now so as soon as I have them in I'll take some pictures. I'm very interested in tracking their color changes if it happens.

The first new Betta of yours is very pretty.
I really hate seeing Betta at the pet shops looking terrible. :(

Thankfully our Wal-mart doesn't carry fish anymore. I'd rather them not have them if they aren't going to take proper care of them!!! Your two new additons are very nice! I'm sure with some love they'll be healthy and beautiful in no time. Good luck :]
