I've been converted...

I've gone to the dark side. >_< My first betta was entirely planned for. I spent a week or more getting things together for him and setting up the tank and everything. I promised myself that I would never buy a betta on impulse like so many others here speak of. I went into pet stores, looked at bettas, and left again without difficulty. And then... I saw him. A pale irridescent blue veiltail. And I couldn't resist him.

So now I have two betta boys! Only thing is, since this latest guy was unplanned for, he's stuck in a little gallon container until I can get him a bigger tank. Makes me feel really guilty, but I keep telling myself that he's way happier now than he was in that little cup.

He's reallly pretty. I still don't have a name for him though...

Don't feel guilty. Your guy is now in a good home, in a larger tank then his little bowl and has someone who cares about him.
And when you do set a tank up your happy with he will be in even more fishy bliss.

Yup. He has been swimming around a lot more and exploring since I put him in his critter keeper. He was looking pretty depressed on the bottom of his cup at the store.

I think I'll call him Jack, short for Jack Frost! ;D
