A few weeks ago I went to Petco and I saw the prettiest red dragon halfmoon plakat. I wanted him but I told myself that I didn't need another fish and that he was so pretty, someone else will buy him.
I went back maybe a week ago, and either he was still there, or it was a different red dragon halfmoon plakat. But he was also very pretty, but he had clamped fins. I told myself that I didn't need any other fish, and that he was still brightly colored so someone would probably buy him.
I went back today, and the one from last week was still there. Except his color was very dull and he wasn't looking too good. I couldn't help it. If I didn't buy him, I think he would have died. I'm not certain that he's going to make it, but hopefully he'll brighten up when I put him in his brand new heated 5 gallon tank!
I'm so bad... I'm not going to a pet store ever again.
Hopefully I can find someone with a camera so I can take some good pics of him and his red VT brother, Techno. I think I might name him Temeraire.
