Red face My first Walmart save...

I went to a Walmart I've never been in before today... went for a few miscellaneous things... ended up with a new betta.
That seems to happen a lot on this site

I thought Walmarts stopped selling fish (at least around here)... guess not. They SHOULD. I went through the two shelves of cups, and in the veeeerrrry back (I had to contort my arm to reach), behind a few dead ones I found this guy, still hanging in. I could barely see him. He worked his way through the sludge water to look at me with... 'that' face. You all know what I'm talkin about!! lol

So, I got him.
He's a multicolor orange/pink (I'm sure he'll change once he gets to feelin better) VT. I've never been a huge fan of VT, but this guy stole my heart! He seems to be in fair shape, only a bit of rot. Gonna get him all fixed up in no time
I'm thinking up a name for him. I have a few in mind. Ryo, Koen, Derrig, Akito, and Fearghus. Can't decide.... but I'm leaning towards Ryo.

Sorry the pic isn't the best, but you get the idea
I'll update as he settles in and destresses a bit.

That's wonderful. He should be good to go in no time!
Have you ever tried the Indian almond leaves ? I have heard a lot about them but never personally used them.
