So, Mike is quite possibly the best stepfather a girl could have.
Sorry, but the position of stepdaughter has already been filled!
You see, Mike and I were at PetSmart this evening to restock on water conditioners and test strips and the like when we passed by a clearance rack-thing. Of course, I noticed all the pretty fake plants (3 for a dollar? Oh man!) and pointed them out, leading to us grabbing a few. Well, then I look done and see a 20 gal. tank kit. Mike follows my gaze and sees it..
NOTE: I had been trying to convince him to turn his 20 gal into a sorority, haha.
Once he spots the price (60 dollars!), he says something that makes my heart stop: "Hey, how about we get that and set it up for your female betta idea in your room?"
And the rest is history!!
So I now have the tank all set up next to me on my desk. I got 4 female bettas, but I think one was actually a male plakat (pretty, far more aggressive, and larger!), so he's now, ironically, in my stepfather's 20 gallon until I'm certain of the gender.
Either way, they aren't anything special: a yellow-red VT, a blue (with a bit of red) VT, and a full red VT, but I still love them. The blue one is the most docile, with the full red as the most aggressive..
I plan on getting more soon; how many do you think I could go away with keeping in there?
Also, name suggestions, anyone?
