So we got a new boy tonight at the local pet store. I didn't get the solid lavender VT that I liked. I didn't get the multi pink/orange VT I liked either. I went to our Pets Unlimited to get our Ich treatment. There were about 30 blue/red/black VT's there, all the same. Then there was one... and I had to take him home.
We went to WalMart and picked up a new tank, new silk plants, new sponge bob hiding cave, new net and some decorative stones. We went back to PU and bought our boy, new water conditioner and new food. $100 later... he's here.
I have no pictures of him right now as he's still in the cup :( I have to leave him overnight as our city did a water main flush while we were out and our water is brown now. Should settle by the morning.
Anyways, he's a Violet/White marble VT. He's so cute. He has one solid purple spot on his fin, and a few patches here and there. I'll take pictures as soon as he's in his tank. Please wish me good luck, I've lost two so far so I am changing everything I have and hope this guy lasts more than a week here!
