My mom wanted a fish.... what?!

Yep you herd! My mom and I went to see a movie together on tuesday night (African cats... sooo goood!) and she made us go into Pier 1.. thats fine cuz I made her go into big al's with me :) I have been trying to not go or buy any fish from big als... at least from their last shipment because the three that I did buy... died within 2 weeks of getting them. Anyway so we go in the back and we were actually just going to look at Chichlids (sp?) but the girl who I always see there said oh we got new betta's in 2 hours ago!! I thought wow two hours ago.. a new shipment.. brand new.. lets just go look. They had SOO many nice ones. OMG. Salamanders, Butterfly's a few MG.. ALL HM!! The one my MOM actually loved was a platinum white HM. There were a few all white ones but some of them had a pink wash to them... some with more pink then others but this guy was PURE white. I couldn't get him then though because we were on our way to the movie and all I would have for him was a 1/2gal container...So i put him and another guy on hold because I couldn't pick. My mom said we would be back tomorrow which is odd as she never wants to go in with me! ANYWAY, next day I go to petsmart get some gravel/plants/2.5gal minibow and then we go to big al's. Chose the all white guy and brought him home! I get to my room to set up the 4th minibow and I realize I have NO more plugs! every electric outlet that I have already has a power bar... all fillied. So my mom actually said ' well why don't you put him in my room?' WOW my mom has never been into a fish so much.. let alone ask for him in her room! So new guy is home. Never had an all white betta... I hope he lives and isn't like the others :@ He is in a heated filtered 2.5 mini bow. My mom has been calling him Tee. I have been calling him TommyTee. So TommyTee it is... Tee for short :)

WOW! He is soooo gorgeous. :) I love the tank decor too! If I were you though, just a suggestion: I would take out some of the gravel, because there is a lot. :) Just a suggestion! But it would give him a bit more freedom for swimming. He's really beautiful. :)

I've gotta resist temptation .... If I hadn't scooped up a beautiful pink VT boy yesterday I might go for kicks. Your (your mum's!) new guy is fantastic! I'm sure he'll be okay. I have four from big al's and they are thriving.

He is gorgeous.

Oh man, guess where I'm going today? It's sort of a blessing and a curse that I recently moved within walking distance of said Big Al's...
