I said I wouldn't get any more girls after Aigis, but I think even I should know by now that I never keep my word...
Since my only class started at 6 PM, I went and had a 'fish day', lol. I went to a few different pet stores and looked at the fish. I went to Big Al's first, because sometimes they stock 'unsual' bettas (anything apart from VTs and CTs). Sure enough, they had two king bettas! I had never seen those before, they were HUGE!
And omg! Someone had reserved a GORGEOUS black orchid HM. I was so jealous...I hope he has a happy life with whoever's coming to pick him up.
The other HM they had was yellow and a little meh...his fins were in bad shape.
I went to Petsmart a little ways away, and that's where I got my girl. She looked a little poorly and her fins were clamped and ragged. I felt bad for her, so I bought her. But just now that I've put her in her tank, her fins weren't as bad as I thought! But she is stressed, reaaaallly pale periwinkle (I think she'll brighten up to blue when she regains her colours). She hightailed it to the plants behind the cave. We'll see how she fares. She's a decent size, a little bigger than Bambi, so I think she should be okay.
Here is a bad webcam shot of her. She had more water in her container, don't worry! But I spilled like half of it while I was trying to hide her in my bag so my aunt wouldn't see when I got home. Turns out it wasn't necessary, since she had gone to the movies.
