So... I left home today with all intentions of buying a mini refrigerator, food for said fridge, and MAYBE a tank to set up and get ready for my fish I was hoping to get from veganchick. While we were at wal mart (cheapest place to buy tanks around here), my friend Arielle spotted a VT and fell in love. Never the one to displease, I offered to house it in my freshly bought 5 gall. until she could get one of her own. As we were leaving Wal Mart, I realized we needed to go to Petsmart to get some more water conditioner, and I wanted some of those blind frogs for Bleud's tank. We get to Petsmart, and decide to look at the Betta's (because who can resist?) and... crap. I fell in love. With TWO. One female, who is freaking tiny as ... well... TINY. And a male crown. Oh. My. God. I HAVE TO HAVE THEM.
So some little thing clicks in my brain: "
GET THEM" so... I do ;_; And two froggies. And hiding places and lots more stuff.
And then I get back and realize... uhh.. I didn't get another tank
And my brain once again goes: "SPLIT THE 5 GALS!"
So I do.
And now... I have 4 Bettas. Only 3 are mine. But still.
And I'm freaking out. Because... I don't know O_O I'm like, aaaah sudden fish explosion!! but I can't bring myself to care. Because they SO CUTE AND ADORABLE AND I LOVE THEM.
I also jacked up the filters in both tanks so that they won't flow as fast (:
I freaked out when I split Bleud's. I didn't check it good enough and there was a gap and he swam through (luckily the boy wasn't in there yet), so when I came back I was like WHAT!? And quickly fixed it. I know I said I'd never go under 5 gallons for a Betta, but.... I couldn't help myself >_>;
I also still hope vegan will let me get one of hers, lol, because I'm gonna buy a 3 gallon (:
Oh, here's my "upgraded" tank, and my new one 8D (FYI - No Bleud doesn't have a hidey place, he didn't like the old one. I'll probably get him another one... eventually)

Let the laughing begin!!
