So today we went out to the Betta Shop
! We were looking for a nice little guy or girl that we could house with our neons and cories. We didn't have super high hopes because Arrrgyle was so unique; I didn't think we could find one as mellow and sweet as he.
Well, the Betta Shop carries hundreds of spectacular bettas, so we actually had a lot to choose from. We ended up picking this guy:
We watched him in his new tank for a few minutes. He didn't chase the neons so much as try to follow them around and figure out what they were! He didn't even notice the cories, it seems. He swam all around, occasionally trying to eat a rock or some sand. He flared at his reflection in the background. Seems like he likes his new digs!
