i've had the betta itch for a while now. ever since Dante passed, really. but, i've held off for a long while. King Steve doesn't count, since he's not mine. >3>
until today. o.o went to the pet store with my bro, to get his CT a heater, because his room's been freakishly chilly lately(his heaters broke a while back, but his room USED to be super hot. in the 90's during the day!), and George and Archfiend weren't looking too hot.
Pet Lover's had alot of bettas, but i didn't see any that caught my eye. generic blues, greens, reds, a cambodian that wasn't looking too hot(shocking for the store, but given how many bettas they had, not unexpected), this TEENY, TINY, ITTY, BITTY, skinny black and midnight blue CT(that i may go back and get. >.>; if he's still there when we go back to get Archie a heater). no girls, so i was bummed. we grabbed the only heater he could afford(a tetra pre-set. not best, but better than no heater), and a thermometer, and went to go pay. decided to glance at the bettas up front. eehh... same as the rest. reds, blues, greens, borings........
then, i saw him. PURPLE! i picked him up, despite the sign saying "ask for help with the bettas. thank you"(guess they know me. xD). yes. purple. .____o POSSIBLY just blue with red wash. but. PURPLE. i set him down and bought him. o3o i've NEVER seen anything CLOSE to purple there. i've been calling him Purple all day, but his official name is Kamui Gakupo Purple. xD after the Voclaoid, Kamui Gakupo, and his color. o3o i call him Gaku, and Purple. i'll have pics soon. he's having to chill in a slightly-less-than-one-gallon Kritter Keeper, till i finish the 10G for King Steve, but he seems to enjoy the room. he's got slightly curled fins, and a chomp in his tail, but otherwise, he's pretty healthy.
