HM or CT!?!?

I'm getting a new betta tomorrow, I pretty much put one on hold today LOL. He is a totally gorgeous young silver coloured Crowntail. I am pretty sure I wanna get him!!

BUT

I do have my crowntail Sumo (red/teal/purple) and they have some super pretty HM's as well...
Like really pretty... mostly this one... BUT.. something about this little silver crowntail guy is calling meee.

What to do what to do! Going back tomorrow after work.. HmMmmph

I would totally get the little silver guy. If there is something about him thats calling you then you should go with your gut and buy him.
You need to trust your instincts, they normally aren't wrong.

I know I do. He better still be there!!!
They put him way behind when I asked them to hold him for me but if he is gone I'll be so sad. The 2 owners are the ones who know I want him though so that's good.

If he's gone at least there are other good options.
But yes.
If all goes well I will bringing home the little silver cutie after work.

Now i need to think of names.. Eep!

Awww! I've only ever had one betta caaaaall to me, and she is now my favorite! Not my fanciest, or my prettiest, but she is so spunky, and she is beautiful to me! I saw her first in a cup at Petsmart, and it took everything I had not to get her. Went back in a week later, and she was still there! So I got her. That was the only betta I worried about for more than a week, regretting not getting her... so glad you are getting the lil silver guy! Pleeeease post some pictures when you get him? :)

I'm a HM maniac so I would be biased and say HM. If you asked my husband the same question he would say CT. Lol! So go with your gut! :)

5 more hours until i am in the fish store!!
i am at work right now (and on this forum, bad me!)

i reeeally hope my littler silver dude is there, the only reason i had second thoughts is because i would really like to mix things up and have both kinds... but... he is so cute. i need to have him.
who cares if i have two crowntails!

and if he is gone, i can get one of the pretty HMs... or one of the other crowntails.. there are so many i just dont know !! lol

sigh.

if i wasn't so obsessed with having one betta per 10 gallon tank i could divide it and get them both! but that would ruin my whole set-up .. so...

we will see! i will get right back on here and let you guys know which one i got when i am home from the LFS and have him acclimating..
yipeeeee

yeah after yesterdays visit to the LFS i think i am partial to crowntails as well..
they had alot of them as well as a lot of HM's (some of the HM's looked like they were straight off of Aquabid) but but but for some reason.. little silver CT (with some traces of red, forget what you call that) just seemed so much more precccious to me.

omg if he's gone imma cry. lol
ther are 3 other ones like him too, but i want HIM, his face is adorable.

Aw, don't cry if he's gone! Although I totally know where you are coming from. After a week of waiting my mom finally said I could get the girl, but a white/blue/pink marble female VT... after a week... chances were pretty low. But she was still there! I have a good feeling for you, I hope your lil guy is still there. :)
