As some of you may already know, I was on Kijiji a few days ago, and I came across an add for a betta. He was in a small, algae-y 1 gal bowl, his water was down to half, and he had two prickly, algae-y plants inside, with no gravel. His water was murky and green
I felt really sorry for him and decided to contact the owner to buy him. I came home maybe fifteen minutes ago with him and decided to do a partial water change, put in some new plants, and some gravel. His tank is much cleaner, but his water is a little murky, so I'm going to do a full water change tomorrow.
I put him on my desk to get aquainted with my other bettas. He's taken a fancy to Hattie, and she's taken a fancy to him! She doesn't flare, and follows him around, while he flares and parades around the tank, occasionally pausing to say hi to Hattie, and then repeating the process again. He has the cutest face, and the almost the most gentle personality I've ever seen in a betta!
I have to admit, he's definitely not a betta I would choose in a pet store, but... as soon as I saw that face, I made a connection with him. This might sound silly, but I love him now as much as my other bettas! He's not a stunner, or a looker, but... I just love him!
Well, enough of my babbling... here he is- No Name
(Pic Spam... Even though he's not that great-looking.
