I was setting up a 10 gallon that I was planning on splitting between 3 males. While I was shopping to get some supplies, I noticed 2 females.
The store normally keeps sister bettas together in a 0.5 gallon 'betta' kit, and these 2 had been there for a long time. This was the first time I was really looking at them, though. They were really pale and had major stripes, but I feel in love with one that looked like it was almost purple. That was how I got Bambi and her sister Lolita.
Lolita died of unknown causes, but Bambi's still around and as cute as ever. She's my favourite female. ♥
