I got my new betta, Lake, while we were on our Christmas vacation at the lake. That's how he got his name. I bought him there because the only place close to my house that sells bettas is Walmart, and I don't like buying fish from there. Well, he had to put up with spending an extra night in his cup while we were at the cabin (but don't worry, I changed his water and kept him in a warm room). When I found him at Petco he was sitting by himself beside the sink with a whole new shipment of baby bettas. He was so pretty that I figured someone was just trying to hide him there.
But I snatched him up! Now he's in a 5 gallon tank with a heater and a low current filter.
