So I find myself breaking my own promise of never buying an animal from a pet store. -__- And I broke the rule because of a damned BETTA! OMG. On the one hand, I am incredibly disappointed in myself, yet on the other hand, I am TOTALLY stoked!
I resisted countless adorable fuzzy faces... but THIS. OMG. I took one look and was like, "he's GORGEOUS!" And "I want him!" >.<
Anyway, without further ado! The temptation that caused me to fall into the category of morally lesser beings who support the commercial sale of animals:
It's that STRIPE! I swear to GOD it's that damn stripe that just got to me. It was the cutest little thing ever! I was like... aw... you've got a stripe! And for some reason, I just couldn't leave without him. The people at Big Al's must be like... uh huh. Crazy person glued to the betta rack.
Although... I have to admit, that I think I knew this was going to happen subconsciously. Because it just so happens that about a month ago, I found a 2 gal tank at Value Village. And it just so happened that I've had it cycling. And it just so happened that I stumbled into Pet Value and came out with another mini heater and filter. It seemed like my subconscious was PLANNING this.
Anyway, this is his home for now:
I want more plants.
And Mr. GORGEOUS needs an awesome name. Suggestions?
p.s. my other guy (who's peach-coloured and has red spots on his fins/tail) is called Drakon. I'd like something at least equally epic for this guy! :)
