So I go to visit my aunt, right? She's moved in a city about an hour and a half away. I need to pick up some things for my tank and a collar for my kitty... well. I guess since you're reading this here you know how this ends, eh? xD
Sand turned out to be EXPENSIVE. So I just went to browse for ghost shrimp. None of those. Lots of great fish in great condition though... then I found the bettas.
I've never seen such amazing looking fish in a store. There was a red salamander HMPK with fins that were just gorgeous. He was so huge and active. There were maybe six fish in total and they all looked pretty good, except one white and bluish HM marble who had a touch of finrot going on... and my boy. He's just slightly bloated, and I think he's got a mild case of popeye, but he was still so lovely and active. I had a crowntail of the same coloration... whom accidentally got so many frozen bloodworms he ate himself to death after only a week with me. So...
Mercury the second here. Or just Merc. I bought him a 2.5 gal little aquarium with a heater and a nice glass hood. I also got black sand for his tank, so he's floating in the main one while his sand settles. it's an ugly mess right now. :P
