Welp - My Mother is upset with my Dad (Not about my betta babies) but she's still taking me to PetSmart. We're actually leave in about 10 minutes, so I'll be back in about an hour or 2 and I'll tell you all about it :3
My mom and I drove the 10-15minutes out to the PetSmart I got Fighter (RIP) from. The Manager saw me ( I think she knew it was me <.<) and said that the guy in the fish department would take care of me. So, he took me over to the bettas they had out, I had already seen them. So he said if I didn't see one I liked he'd bring the ones they just got in. There were 45 bettas on that cart!! It was 5 rows across, 3 cups each row, and 3 bettas in each stack! I looked at all of them. I really took my time. I actually found a really pretty pasty white dalmation. Only reason I left him was because I know he'll get baught right away. I ended up narrowing it down to 2 boys, 1 boy was a blue/white whilte the other was red/blue (Turns out when I got him out of that blue water, he was PURPLE and red!! SO PRETTY!!) I had the $3 coupon and you know, bettas are $3.99. So I ended up walking out with the 2 I liked. One was the replacement, and the other was only a $1!! And that nastly lil sales girl had to ring me up. She was so nice because my Mom was there. But any who - Once I get more money (Hopefully at least $30 this week) I'm gonna get a 2.5g for $13 & if that little pasty dalmation is there, He is SO mine. I'll have my dad take me. He won't mind :3. If he's baught, I'll be okay with that too.
Also - PICTURES! & before you guys ask, my 2 new males are spending the night and part of tomarrow in there cups since I have to let the water settle before I place my 3 girls in the 10g. Better with me in the cups since they got fresh water along with it's heated :3.
Wow, so now you have 11 bettas!!! Amazing! Wow, the purple red one is so pretty! Lovely VT. I like the name Violet for him! :)
The light blue VT, wow! What an interesting tail, I've never seen a VT with a tail quite like that! He's pretty. I like the names Ocean, Neptune, Wave, Ripple. :)
I love Violet for him. I think I'm gonna go with that. I can't really think of anything more perfect for him. Except maybe Valentine, but that is more for a pink/white, pink/red, red/white, male. Something like that. So Violet it is for him. And Well... Between those 4... I LOVE Neptune. Neptune & Violet. Ohh I love it <3!!!
I really hope that White Dalmation will be there. I think he should still be fairly healthy by the time I get him. Aw, my babies are so pretty :3. I would hae gotten the white dal, but something about Neptune kind of called me to him. And for Violet, well, he was just so pretty. I couldn't even think about not taking him home. It was like.. Just SO hard to choose. My Mom was being nice :3.
LOL, wow! Yay, more names. :) Wow, if you get the white dalmation, that makes 12! A dozen bettas, wowza! It's nice thought that you were able to get 2. :D I am kinda jealous, I wants more fishies! But my next fish will have to wait until one of mine passes (that's the rule). It will hopefully be either a HM, HMDBT, or a wittle baby fry from one of my friends on the forum. Yay! :D But probably a HMDBT. I love them! :D
Yeah, after that I don't think I'm getting anymore for a while. My Mom will probably sell them or give them away while I'm at work if I get more. So yeah DX
Oh - I finally got to go to the petstore by my house. I thought it was going to be small and family owned and really nice and clean. But it was so disgusting. I walk in and its dirty and smells so gross. I found a tank full of female bettas (maybe 10g) and it had about 10 females in there. Plus I found that he had about...15 males, but how it was set up was that a male would be in a tank with other Fresh water fish and then they'd had the seperate breeder things with about 5-6 other males in there! I felt so bad. My Mom told me that the water is so settled that if you take one home and place it in a clean tank, it'll mostly likely die. Shame really, he had 2 very pretty males I'd love to buy. My Mom was like "Hannah, PLEASE no more!!" XDD ROFL.
Honestly - I think if I get that Pasty Dal and say he'll be my last MALE and that I'll only get a female if I have the space in my 10g, I think she'll be okay with that.
Another thing that is crazy in my opinion - I have that one 2.5g that Mango is in, and I realized it has these little notch things that you can slide dividers into! I placed the glass that comes as its lid into the 2 slots and its like 1-2 inches across!! It was like.. Really? Who would divide a freakin 2.5g?! x.x..
