Yeah...I went and got that boy that I saw at Petsmart.
All I could do was think about him. Him and I really 'connected', lol. He's got a lot pinkish body, with blue and maroon splotches on his fins. When I went back to get him, they had changed the water of the cups, and he was waaaaaay in the back. I freaked out because I thought someone had bought him already! But after re-arranging all the cups (and getting a few stares), I finally found him.
I call him Pony Boy! Not that I liked The Outsiders much, but when I saw him, I instantly thought of a pony! So I call him Pony Boy.
Now, if he was going to stay in the breeding trap permanantly, I wouldn't have gotten him. As you know, I can't get any more tanks...but here is my situation:
My aunt and uncle are moving to Sweden in March, because my uncle has a job offer there. I'm renting a room with a couple, and they said I'm allowed to bring my fishtank. The room only has enoguh space for one, though. My mom is coming to pick up my other tanks and my sister is going to take care of the fish until I go home in May. My dad has a 15 gallon at home, so I'm giving her my females. Also, I cannot stand the thought of leaving Renard, my absolute favourite (don't tell the others!)
So I'm going to be taking my 10 gallon with me, and splitting it 4 ways between Renard, Pony Boy, Dahl, and Joachim. I'm not too worried about my other bettas, because my sister is a very competent girl and an animal lover (plus I'm giving her a little money). xD
So with that in mind, I went and bought Pony Boy! And he's doing very well so far. Flaring at the ladies and building a nice bubble nest! He hasn't eaten yet, too busy flirting. Lol.
Whew! Sorry this is getting to turn into a major story. Pony Boy is absolutely my last betta!
