I have never seen a female cellophane... males, yeah. But a female?...
How did Petco even get something like her?! D:
Ironically I got her the day Uncle died. (I didn't find out he died until July 4th... I've been out of town.) My grandmother and I went to the Petco near where she lives 'cause she needed dog food. I decided to look around a bit (at the fish of course) and came across where the bettas were. I'm happy to say they looked like they were decently cared for (unless we happened to stop by the day they actually change the water), and I glanced at this one and that... and there's a pretty giant... ...
When I saw the cellophane girl, Gran found me and asked if I was ready to go yet.
Long story short, we left Petco without her.
We got to her Explorer and I quietly, shyly asked "Ummm... so that betta fish I kept talking about.."
"Do you want it? Here, ten dollars"
"... << ... ... *runs back inside*"
I grabbed her immediately, headed for the cash register-- ohwaitIdon'thavefishfood, I'm out of town. D:
So I had her, got a small pack of pellets... okay, good let's g--
G'ah, she might have finrot. Her fins are a bit short...
So I now have meds for any general diseases, food, her... um... tank... small tank-- OH WHATEVER, she'll be fine in this cup, it's really not that small, and she's tiny as it is.
I came up short at the register by a few cents, but I had change in my wallet. After a week, I packed her in my checked bags and we flew back to Florida.
I'd give a whole rant and rave about her personality and the whole story with her, but my room's a mess with mail I got while I was gone, clothes to unpack still, commissions to finish, and AJFUAFSFISFASLG (I already did water changes this morning... took me 3 1/2 hours because there's also family visiting, and the 2-year-old twins don't make lugging 5 gallon buckets of water around the house easy)
Without further ado! He's pictures of her around the first days I had her. I've named her Northern Lights (Nights, for short); the reason why is the slight color in her anal fin... I dunno, it makes sense to me. xP
