New Yellow Crowntail!

So I was at my dentist and could see the fish at this small mom and pop pet shop across the street. While I calmly sat there enduring the painful torture of the dentist I watched the tiny dots of fish in their tanks and wondered if there were any bettas there and if there were, would they be nice to chum around with? I was also on laughing gas, so I was all loopy and had images of rainbow propelled unicorns and bettas swirling around me.

When it was all mercifully over, I wobbled across the street to see the fishes. I was secretly hoping to see a few psychedelic rainbow bettas, but no .... no, tho it would have been very cool. There were only five bettas in the whole store, and they were all gorgeous ones too. They had full, healthy fins. No finrot. Everyone was fat, sassy, and healthy. It was such a change from what I'm used to seeing. I chose him because he was the one who charged flaring right up to me when I held his cup, lol! And because he's a yellow. I love yellows <3

Thinking of calling him Soleil.

Also got some java moss :)

He's really a pretty fish.

What they say about keeping fish has to be true...the fish were relaxing you from across the street! LOL.

So jealous! I don't really like CT much in general but I love the look of yellow/light colored CT and I've been scouring the US for one just to have.
