So I've been wanting a new betta for myself, but I needed a new tank. So yesterday I bought a 2.5g tank filter, gravel and all for $20 off craigslist! I went betta shopping but didn't see any takers.
My parent's best friend's son, he's 12, he was with me when I bought my tank. He really wants a betta since I already have one. Then I remembered a 5g tank, filter, everything, on craigslist, PLUS a betta, for $30. I asked his parents what they thought of him getting a pet fish for Christmas and they said they were fine with it. So I bought the 5g tank today and it came with a red/black/blue crowntail which the kid will love (it's the exact species/color he wanted).
And while I was at Petco I fell in love with this Delta tail. He's pure white and has transparent fins - but they glow BLUE in certain lighting. I'll let the pics below speak for themselves. First up is the red crowntail for the kid:
Now for my betta... This girl I know wants to name him Twister (??) Any ideas?
See, white and see-thru except when.....
.....except for when his fins glow blue:
Man do I love bettas... Here's all my tanks now, a 2.5g, a 5g and my old 10g community. I think I'm going to give the kid the 2.5g.
And of course my ol' mutt veiltail betta Phin, who I still love the most:
What do you guys think? I'm very happy with my new betta and I think the kid is going to love his Christmas present!
