I don't know what it is about me, but I have always preferred male cats and now I suppose it has translated into bettas as well. Come to think of it, when I was pregnant I was hoping that I was carrying a boy too! Maybe I need a psychiatrist? But I have been oohing and aahing at bettas on aquabid for days much to the dismay of any company I have had over and my two year old daughter who would much prefer I give HER my full and undivided attention. When I show her a fish and say, "Oooh Aurora! Look how pretty that one is! Isn't he/she gorgeous?!" she responds with: "That's Buttercup? No, that's not my Buttercup!"
Hmm I did a search for his name, but the last post I saw was that he closed the listing. A day late and a dollar short. Now I don't know if I should hope to be outbid or not! I really like the fish, but have a feeling that the totalled shipping expenses will leave me in the hole. On a brighter note, I may have found a 5 gallon on Craigslist at a good price!
