My Trip To Walmart 0.o

Welp, I'm sorry, but i had to do it , i bought a Pleco...
i got the sickest one, the Wal-mart lady even asked twice if i wanted him, i said ''well i promised him I'd take him home, i don't wonna get his hopes up, so yes i want him'' and guess what.... he's a 100% better!! he's darker and he moves more... i also bought 2 snails and some silk plants and ornaments...$21.20 in all... :P expensive ole Wal-mart tricked me out of my money :( L O L , oh daaaang... *shrug*
and the 1 time i go in there N.O.T wanting a betta is the 1 time they have different colored females that are pinkish ang greenish, i wanted to buy 1 soooo bad!!! ugh.. :(

PLUS.....this....
so my house got chilly and i don't have a heater for my 3 bowls, just my ten gal, so i put my betas and some of there water, in the cups i bought them in, i stuck the lids on , and im letting them float at the top of my 10 gal... last night the female jumped out of the hole in the top of the cup and supriseingly, her nor the male were fighting...at all! but i still put her back into her cup, just to be cautious! okay so now that ive written a Novel, what do u think about all...THIS... ? lol. :P

Congrats on the pleco! What species did you get? My cousin had one outgrow her 70g it was like the size of my forearm (I'm average height adult) she had to give it to the pet store's display o.o

And do you mean the female jumped out of the cup into a betta sorority? Of just a betta tank?? I didn't understand but it's good noone fought!

Might be a good idea to find out the species..some of these stay small, and some get really big! If you got one of the big ones you'll want to make sure you can afford a big tank when he's older! :) Plus, we need pictures!

Don't worry about it yet. It kind of looks like a female bristlenose. Here is mine if it helps. They only get up to five inches.
