I hope all of you can help me decide on what betta to buy!
I believe my tank will be completely cycled by tomorrow, which means I get to go to Petco and choose a betta!
My 10 gallon is modestly planted with two java ferns, one anubias gigantea, and soon will be home to one anacharis and a microsword. Ah, and a few marimo balls. I think any waste from the fish will be quickly absorbed by the plants in the tank.
I am hoping to get any of the fish that isn't wildtype/veiltail, because...well, the more elaborate finnage makes me happy. No offense to veiltails - they are beautiful as well.
The Petco near my house apparently has 50 bettas to offer, so I think there will be a lot of tail types and colors to choose from. I have mentally narrowed down my choices to fish that aren't solid-colored. Although, if anyone suggests an awesome color and I see it at the store, I would be very happy to take him home.
So here's where I would appreciate some input. I already named my fish Mr. Darcy (so I can call him mine, of course), the male protagonist of Pride and Prejudice. If you know his character, let me know what colors you think of when you envision him. If you can think of several colors, even better.
This is all very exciting for me - I've been waiting to buy a fish for months!
So join me in the fun and help me decide!
