Getting ANOTHER betta

So I have my 5 gallon...and I was like...yeah I don't want a dwarf puffer(and I most likely wouldn't find one anyway) so I figured I'd get another betta.

I got some things to fill in the tank today...once I have it set up I'll take a picture.

Um...I wonder what betta fish I'll pick this time? it's such a mystery! =3
And for like the last time I hope I can find a nice blue one...D= I keep wanting blue then it turns into like pink or wild color =P

...all silk plants and a epic looking hide, you'll see when I take a picture...mind you it's not gonna be complete though...I'll still need to get a heater (but it's summer so it's kinda not reallly needed right away) and I need to get smaller gravel to cover up the rocks I have, and some other decor...so it might take another month or so to finish it completely. =3
Then I can get the fish...so most likely later on in the month.

You know...I would adopt a betta...only thing is I can't pay shiping or for the betta...I can't buy stuff online...D=

also I really wish I had a petsmart or some big petshop like that...then I can get a really nice betta...but...again I live like in nowhere village so yeah...

Someone get me one and send it for free? XD lulz...nah I wouldn't ask that...too much trouble for people I think. .-. besides I live in canada...most of you people are in the usa I think...it be hard to ship a pet over here. ._.

Nope, closest one around is a long LONG drive.

so unfortunately I can't get any betta's from those places.

Also here are some pictures of the tank, it's a 5 gallon bowshaped tank.

Yes the hide is a t-rex skull. XD I though it looked really cool so yeah. Also all the plants are silk so there is no worry of fin damage. =3

Noting much...just two, one called petplus 3(it's like this places petsmart or something), and a localy owned pet shop named "birds eye view" BEV sells more exotic pets like sharks/puffers/koi/ferrets/a lot of birds/eels etc..., while pet+3 sells dogs/kittys/basic fish/basic reptiles.

Oh nonononono! I never said I couldn't get bettas, I just said I rather get one that I really like the color of. But as I said before the only bettas that I see are mauve/red or dark blue...but I want one thats lighter blue or at least some nice blue on it...I might be able to order one from the petshop but I dunno if they do that service.

Also a fin tail that isn't veil would be nice... .-.

I got the hide and plants from my walmart...and before you freak, No my walmart does not sell fish, only fish suplies, they use to (mind you it was the cleanest walmart fish keeping place I've seen, no dead fish and clear and clean tanks, bettas where still treated a little badly though...but they stopped.) but they stopped because no one really buys that much fish around here.

Anyway the rocks I got from a dollar store, they work fine.

Wow! =D NICE plants!!! Wish I could find some cool ones like that! =P Good luck getting your next fish! Hey! maybee you could ask your petplus 3 if they could try getting their bettas from a breeder with more specialized bettas and have an event for it or something? or if they could just order a couple for you and a few others that you could get to special order with you? =]

Probably wont work but a thought. =]
