Okay I'm just way too excited to tell this story. Sorry if I steal your thunder, Jenna!!
Okay so Saturday morning Jenna and I woke up and we were EXCITED!!! We pumped some water into a bucket and added the goldies. After the tank was empty of all decor we headed to Petco. Man did we have a hard time! The truck moved around a lot and when we went over speed bumps I was sure somebody was going over board but thankfully that didn't happen. All the goldies got to Petco safely where they were put into their very own 10 gallon. After that little adventure it was time to pick out the betta. Now much to our disappointment there were only a few CTs and some females left. But that didn't stop us from finding the most beautiful fish within the batch. We were stuck on a steel blue/black boy, a white/blue boy, or a white/purple boy. Then we decided against the white/blue leaving the other two. Naturally, we purchased both of them. XD It was a short trip back and once everyone was safely home Jenna and I still had A LOT of work to do. First we cleaned everything out with the vacuum. Then we spent the next 30 minutes installing the divider and Jenna had to make sure it was PERFECTLY centered or else it would bother her to no end (everything must be even!!!!!) Then the ornaments and plants were added along with a brand new heater. While the heater warmed everything up and the filter cleared the water we went out and saw 2012 (which was awesome). When we got back everything was ready and all that was left was to float the fish.
Then their personalities began to show. The steel blue is a little warrior! He flares at EVERYTHING despite him being tiny. He also hides in the shadowy corners thus me dubbing him "little ninja". The little purple is a sweetheart! Curious and light and the complete opposite of his tankmate. Everything has been going awesome.
Here's the steel blue, Evander
And here's his counterpart, Leander
