Went to the mall yesterday with my aunt, stopped at the petstore to look.
Their crown tails were very tiny. And quite thin imo. There was a very cute one with a turquiose body which looked like he could be a multi-colour when he brightens up. I really did like him, since he was so tiny and cute! But I was fighting very hard not to buy him.
But then a couple came that I can only describe as...um...white trash like. They decided right on the spot that they should get a betta, so they went and got a gallon kit and some gravel (eh, could have been much worse), and looked for a betta. Still, it was quite obvious that they didn't know anything.
They were checking out the boy that I was looking at, and they guyseemed really interested in him. So I scooped him up when they were looking somewhere else and bought him. I just couldn't hand him over to them. They picked out an active red VT instead.
I do feel pretty guilty, though. They still ended up getting a betta. I wish I could have said something, but they were so intimidating.
But at least the one that I bought will be happy. He's such a tiny guy!
I'm setting up a one gallon drum-type thing that used to hold lollipops I bought from Costco. I'll be splitting my ten gallon 3 ways next week so he has more room. Pics to come soon, I hope. I can't wait to see him colour up!
