Talking Dangit!

I was gonna wait until Petsmart opened this weekend to get a new betta, but I made the mistake of going into Pets Unlimited this evening. Expecting to see a few unhealthy blue bettas listlessly swimming (or not swimming), what to my wondering eyes should appear but a new shipment! And in amongst all the really pretty reds and blues (and a very pretty one with green iridescence), I found this guy.




I just couldn't resist him. I even went back and got him after leaving the store. He doesn't have a name yet, I've got to figure out a good one. So now I might not be getting a new betta this weekend at Petsmart. *sigh* But I likes my new little buddy.

Oh...and Root Beer says hi too!

Nice find, extraordinary considering where you got him, course I shouldn't speak so badly, got my Scuzi from there. He looks wonderful.

OH! and for the name, what about Champange? staying on the drink theme (And no I don't know how to spell :O)

He's the same color as Saix! :D

There's an alcoholic beverage named Peach Fuzz, that would be so cute! But I like Champagne too! :D

I found it really funny that the most interesting fish they had there today (my new guy and the green looking one I mentioned earlier) were put over on the side where the lights weren't hitting them. I had a small led flashlight with me, so that I could see the iridescence on the fish. My new guy was put on the top level in the darkest corner where you couldn't see him if he was at the back of his 'tank'. I think he only came to the front where I could see him because he saw me shining my light.

Of course, he might have been put there on purpose cause one of the staff wanted to buy him. Oh, well!

Right now I'm thinking Aether. It's the name of a greek god of light, namely the bright, upper glowing air of heaven. It's also a medieval word for upper air or pure air.
