Oh No I did it again!!

Well I'm officially a betta freak, I went to the Ottawa Ex with my friend, and coming out of an exhibit I saw a stand selling betta's.

I was in shock cause they were not selling them in ideal condition's, but atleast the cups they were in were bigger then pet'smarts. The water was clean, but it was cold out, so ya cold water.

The girl told me they came directly from Thailand and were still only babies, the one I got I think she said was the youngest, three months or so. She had this deal where u get a fish and everything to take care of it, not properly tho, I'll have to go get him a bigger home tomorrow or something. But she gave u the plastic aquarium thing, a net, some food, gravel and a very *useless care sheet* *lol* all for 30 bucks.
Is that to much for that type of deal?

So I came home with two stuffed animals and this handsome 'lil guy..so without any ado..I present to u Tex the delta tail..i think.

I know eh, that's what I thought when I saw him, he's aquabid quality. And I'm so happy I maybe got a betta breeder, or something not too far from where I live, she gave me her biseness card.

He's maybe still quite young, so for being a dragon I dunno, his scales don`t look like those of a dragon, the blue isn`t all over his body, just his back, so I dunno, I hope so..when he settle`s in he might change a bit.
What attracted me to him was his lil`mask tho, it`s really cute.

What do u think of his name... does it suit him...

I have three now with Tex, but it`s not the amount of fish I have, it`s wether I can take care of them, bigger tank, heater, thermometer, gravel..ect, oh and outlets, the energy it must use to run the tank.

Yeah its expensive, For deigo's tank I just got a 2 gallon jar from wal-mart it was 9 bucks I put a filter in it and it doesn't have a heater yet but it has a 3 dollar desk lamp I got from ikea a million years ago that is doing a good job at keeping his tank the right temp. I would actually suggest to save money if you have a wal-mart close by to get the jar its perfect and cheaper then a tank at a petstore and deigo LOVES it I also got him a little bowl and put it on it's side it cost 1.50 and looks great too I have a pic of it I can show you if you want.

That's CHEAP in my eyes.... I got my pastel delta for $25. And a gorgeous fish, a net, some food and gravel for $30? Wow.
