A few days ago i went to pet smart to get a new betta (not the best place to go but at least i get the joy of saving a fish from a cup.) I walk over to the betta section and i see th usual red and blue selection. none look healthy but one catches my eye. He is a red/brown VT male (probably the uglyest one there!) with a little fin rot (if u want a pic see my avatar) I look at him and continue looking at the rest but my eye keeps going towards him.I walk back towards him and he seems to wake up and relize he is still alive and then he sees me he quickly swims around his cup looking for a way out. I pick him up and look him over closley the light shines in and I see his beautyful blue stripes as if showing off he picks up his fins and show how pretty he can be. By this point i know he is the one and buy him on the way home i start brainstorming names...Dragon..Eragon...Jaxom..Robinton...F'lar.. .F'LESSAN! Yep F'lessan that is the one! When I get home I put him in his bowl and he happily explores his new surrondings.
That was a few days ago and now every time i see him he purks up and swims awround yesterday i stared at him admiringly for an hour!
I think i found my dream fish!(however ugly he may be!)
P.S. His fin rot seems to be geting better but if you have any sudustions pleas say them!
