i went to walmart the other day, so of course i had to check the fish section. the time i went before that, long story short, practically all of them had some sort of illness. the other day, they had just got some new arrivals and this guy was among them:
UGHH isn't he just gorgeous?! i swear, i just stood there staring at him for about 10 minutes, and it just killed me that i couldn't take him home.
here's a video
i was afraid there would be somebody who would go, "oh, you shouldn't be taking pictures/recording etc etc.." but fortunately there wasn't.
there were also many other new, beautiful bettas, and they're actually starting to sell some females. but still, most of them were sick, bad cases of fin rot, SBD, and other things. :/
i just hope most of them are fortunate enough to be picked up by someone who knows how to properly care for bettas. <3
