Red face I couldn't say no.

Went to petco today to pick up some bloodworms. What to I see? Male PK, white and shimmery. He was labeled as a delta. I bought a .75 gallon critter keeper and him-- and now I'm floating him in my 10 gallon. I needed a QT tank anyway, and within a week I'll be getting a 10 gallon tank divider. I told myself my limit was two, and that I absolutely wouldn't buy another fish unless it what a white male PK.

Both fish seem less than thrilled about their new neighbors. xD;

Yeah me too. I think my dad may have packed up my camera thinking it was his or something-- we've got similar cases. I hope it shows up soon. >.< Maybe it's at his work or something. *sigh*

It'll be a shame to tear apart the tank and make it look pretty divided-- I just got it looking so nice. *lol*

I divided my 10 gallon, I think it looks cool to have two different styles in one tank.
You could even get plants that match the colours of each Betta. I have one plant in each of my 6 tanks that is the colour pattern of my Bettas. Really makes them pop. :)

I've got a really gorgeous opalite turtle that'll be going in with the new boy. I've got some old pictures of it;



He's white but with the same sort of shimmery colors so I think it'll look lovely in with him once I divide the tank up.

And it's not that I don't think it'll look nice-- it's just that two days ago I planned the whole thing out and rearranged the whole inside and got it lovely looking. xD

That turtle is very nice! It will look great I am sure.
One of the reasons we love fish is rearranging their tanks, is it not? :)

Yeah, I suppose. xD But just after I got it looking all pretty. rofl

I have to say, I'm very surprised at what the petco had. There was a delta or halfmoon the same sort of shimmery white-- and there were one or two marble doubletails. One of the females water was filled up and overflowing from the cup though! I went to pick her up and look at her and got a splash of (at least clean looking) fish water down my sleeve and side. >>

I went to the sink and poured some out until she had air to breath. I hope she'll be okay. :c

Think of it this way... at least they gave her enough water to swim in.

Oh yes. Well, I gave her some air to breathe, too.

And yeah I'm sorry about the lack of picture. I've got a LG phone with a camera... but it's a tracfone and I can't seem to figure out how to get pictures uploaded with it.
