It all started with a trip to a department store where I saw a fun fish shaped glass bowl. I thought, "Wouldn't it be cool to use it to house a fish?". Well, I got the bowl and was all excited to get a new fish.
After reading a bit about bettas, i realized the bowl was too small for them and shouldn't use it at all. BUT that was after I fell in love with all the beautiful fish out there and REALLY wanted a betta.
I was about to buy one from aquabid because I wanted a really nice one but I thought, "Maybe I should buy a pet store one and make sure I don't kill it before spending that kind of money". So, I was willing to get a lesser quality betta just to gain some experience.
I went to PetSmart and another pet store in my area and the betta fish were just so depressing. After a few days surfing the net I noticed that Petco advertizes different types of bettas on their website so I looked a store nearby and went.
I was so impressed by the quality of the betta! They even have females!
Anyway,this little guy caught my eye and truly he was the prettiest one there. He's (I think) a Double Tail Half Moon!
I got him a one gallon tank and some plants set up the first day and transfered him to the new home on his second night. After bitting my nails for that fisrt day because he seemed very pale and stressed, he's doing beautifully now. He seems really happy!
He needs a name!
I want another betta already! LOL
Made a video of him too!
