Today after my exam, thought I'd give myself a break and head to Big Al's...didn't actually plan on buying anything, but guess what?
Attention fleetfish & all other members in the Ottawa region: Big Al's has got some lovely Delta + Super Deltas on sale for $5.99! That's like 4 times cheaper than what they usually sell for!
Actually, I didn't know at first. I was just checking out a boy that caught my eye, but was thinking that it's still pretty expensive for me to buy...until the lady told me that...I thought, "Perfect! Happy birthday to me!"
Anyway, so then it was who to pick...they had a lot of gorgeous guys there, mainly wild-types and multi colours...I think they all came from a single spawn...it was was really hard to choose! I narrowed it down to a flaring wild-type with 'leopard spots' and the cutest little rounded tail, and a handsome green-ish/blue boy with a bit of a mask.
...Buuut I couldn't choose between the two. Every time I went to put one of them back, I felt bad for leaving him there. So...I bought both!
And so this is how I ended up with two very handsome boys that cost me half the price of what one normally does! Good deal!
Anywho, as for the boys...I did put some thought into their housing situation. I've had a few tupperware-type bins that I bought for storage, but hadn't used them yet. They're not so big...definitely bigger than 0.5 gallons. I'm thinking about a gallon. I've put them in there until next Tuesday/Wednesday when I'm returning home for winter break and they'll get a nice roomy critterkeeper.
Currently floating them in their bags (I got home late!), but I'm sooo excited! Wish I could show you guys pictures, but you'll have to wait until next week!
BTW, I named my not-so-new-anymore new boy Albatross. He seems veerrry interested in his new neighbour, even if he can't really see him (the bin's translucent).
