I was at Petsmart picking up things for my fish when I made the mistake of looking at the Bettas. They were on sale for 2 dollars with a store card. There were only 3 or 4 veiltails left and 5 or 6 crowntails. Normally they've got two or three rows of each 6 or 7 across. I went ahead and looked, figuring all the pretty and healthy ones would be gone anyway. Then I saw this little guy, I thought he was going to be blue and white because of the dye in the water, but he turned out to be a red and white crowntail with blue streaks though his fins. I don't know why he got looked over, he's gorgeous and sassy.
