I went to Petco today on a whim. I was looking over there Bettas. They had a lot of pretty ones. I saw some pretty females, some were sick though. I just didn't want to bring home a rescue. I looked at the front, then on the rack to the side, and to the back. I went back and forth a couple of times. I was decided on maybe getting one of the pretty more active girls, or just waiting.
But then....I started digging around on the front shelf. They had some Bettas pushed to the back you wouldn't have been able to see unless you moved a few. I swear this girl must have been hidden. She is ALL white with a couple of specks of black on her. She is active and curious and has so much personality. When you shine the light on her right, she has a green shimmer on her. I couldn't stop staring at her and I knew she was the one. I bought her almost immediately.
I set up a 2 gallon quarantine for her which is going to be her home for the next week. I've let them "meet" already (held her cup up to his tank so they could check each other out). There was some flirting going on. I can't wait for them to start living side by side!
I took these with my DSi since the batteries in my camera died. I swear the pictures do NOT do this girl justice. I'll get better ones soon!
OH, and I don't have a name for her yet. Anyone have suggestions? Something to get my mind jogging?
