And a new boy makes 5!

You won't believe what happened today. I don't, anyway...

My aunt was going to Costco today, and next to it is a Petsmart. So I begged her to go together. Of course, didn't plan on buying anything (though I did bring my debit card-just in case!), I just wanted to show her some bettas and secretly look around for a male.

Well, they had a few TINY red CTs. But I wasn't very interested in them. Their females were only 97 cents! So my aunt says, astonishingly, that I should buy one at such a good price!

I was like "Wait, WHAT!?"

But the females were...meh. There was a cute one, but she had some swim bladder problem.

So I decided to look over the VTs, just for fun. My aunt kept pointing pure blue ones, which I don't personally like...though there was a cool blue with with a green arrow mark shape on his body! He had some major finrot, though.

My little guy caught my eye right away. He reminded me a bit of SaylorKennedy's Fish, and he was flaring like crazy by the guy against him! Very active compared to the others. Though a few others had nice bubblenests.

My aunt must have liked him too, because she gave me the green lights to go ahead and buy him! No kidding!

...She said I needed to give her wrists a major massage tonight. But it was worth it. :P

As we were driving home, he kept glaring at me and wriggling around angry in his cup. I'm loving him the more i see him.

Right now I have to go help make dinner, but I'm gonna put him in the 2 gal. I need to clean it out after dinner and set it up. I got him two Ancient Greek type ornaments for his tank, and I'm just gonna tank some gravel from my 5 gal.

So without further ado, here's a webcam pic of my new guy (better pics to come later):

Nope! He's actually blue and white. Though his body does have some purple in the light.

The camera just records colours oddly, my skin isn't that pale either. Lol.
