I've been MIA for a while from these forums. I've had a lot of work and between planning a wedding and being a full time pet sitter/house wife/artist I've had my hands full. Just haven't been on the net as much lately.
I shop at Petco quite frequently. It's the only place that seems to carry Natural Balance cat food... which is a shame because it's all my kitties can eat. They have barfy problems with anything less. Anyway... I always look at the animals, naturally, and bettas are always in plentiful supply. There's been this one, a halfmoon king, that's been there for well over two months and it really pulled at my heart strings every time I saw him up on the top of the betta shelf just sitting there forever. At $20, that's a steep price for the average fish buyer, let alone a kid with his/her mommy whining for a new pet.
So I went to the shopping center with Petco this morning... got my milk and stuff... then got him. :P
He's currently bunking in a 1 gallon temporary holding tank until I can set up my empty 5 gallon for him, but it's WAY better than sitting in his cup for another month or two until he dies.
He's not particularly pretty. I'd go so far as to say somewhat ugly... but I like 'im! I don't have any names for him just yet so if you have a suggestion let me know! Also, he looks like a cambodian? Is that what you'd label him as or what is he?
And now... the pictures of my new 'king'.
