!!!My minions have arrived!!!!

Well, the good news is that early this morning, my 3 AB boys arrived!

The bad news is, Goose, my GIANT black dragon betta that I was ooooohhh so excited about, was DOA! I am soooooooo bummed out, and quite honestly angry. The bag he was in was SMALLER than the tiny bags that my other 2 boys were in. And I was stunned at his SIZE! You know the big guys you see at Petco? I would put money on it that Goose is a little over twice their size! I have NEVER seen a giant that big. His body alone was 3.5 inches. Which is probably why he was about a 100.00 fish with everything combined. Ugh... SOOOOOO bummed!

Well, This means that the two boys that did make it (who are super spunky!) get a 10 gal now divided only once. Spoiled boys! I took an hour to introduce them to the light, and they are now starting their acclimation process. I plan to take 12 hours this time. Here are some teaser photos! I think I have names picked out but if anyone has a good suggestion let me know!

Your guys are really good-lookin'! Too bad about the third D: Because he was DOA, can you get a refund, or maybe another fish?

I really hope so. On his AB site he says that if you take a picture within a few hours of getting the fish he will refund. However, I really struggled with contact during this whole process and hope he pulls through on the refund. I took picts and sent all the tracking info to prove the date and time he arrived, alone with dates on the picts. We will see!

Awww, I'm so so so sorry Goose was DOA! :( I know you were very excited about him, especially! But yay, the other two are spoiled. :) They look gorgeous! What names were you thinking? I'd name the colorful blue/black/white one... Marina? Sorry, totally blank. The other one... pumpkin, stripe, anaranjado, Peaches. IK, awful! :) I love them, you are so lucky! You must shower us in pictures. :)

Thanks!! My sadness is already being replaced with pure glee- these two boys are sooooo funny! The red white and blue one especially. Flares at me every time I approach him to add water to his bag haha. For him, I was trying to think of a good "American" name given his colors and was leaning towards Samuel Colt (Sam for short), and the orange dal I was thinking Chester, like the cheetos cheetah haha. But I like Pumpkin too... A LOT! Or even a variation of it like Punk'in :P
