I was THIS <holds fingers together about 1/2 inch apart> close to getting a girlie betta today after work. It would have been an impulse buy, so good judgement prevailed and I refrained! I have a smallish bowl and a spare 10 gallon, but I reasoned with myself (VERY hard to do, as I'm pretty unreasonable with myself most times) and I want to keep the 10 gal as an emergency tank and the bowl is too small, IMO. Besides, I really wouldn't know where to put another tank. I could find
a place, but didn't want to do that.
She was a young (less than 6 months old) black and velvety dark purple with purple around her eyes. VERY pretty. Sigh.... some other time will be better, I'm sure.
