I must say that I was terribly heartbroken to have my first betta Mo die just recently. I moped around for a while... before remembering that I had seen a handsome delta tail at Petco the other day... and I found myself wondering whether he could still be there waiting for his new home. I told myself that I shouldn't be in any rush to get another betta... but IF he was there, IF he was still in his lonely little cup on a shelf, I would get him.
Guess what? He was there. ^_^
I believe from the thread on coloration that he is a Cambodian. He has a very pale iridescent purple body and rich red fins. And... blue eyes. Those blue eyes are what really sucked me in. I think his fins are still growing out... he looks like a young guy. In any case, I'm trying to figure out what to name him so any suggestions would be appreciated...
I think it has been good for me to have this new guy around. He's very active and happy, which has really cheered me up after losing Mo in such a long painful process.
