Baby Betta Boy & First AB Purchase!

I'm so glad my first AB purchase was from a US breeder who lives super close to me. I won him Saturday night and he's currently floating in his temporary home acclimating as I type this on Wednesday afternoon. I didn't have to wait long at all. So, I've got an unboxing video for all of you and some photos.

Quick info blurb before I get into things:

First, I know I say betta wrong in the video. I know perfectly well it is pronounced beh-ta, not bay-ta. I've just said it wrong for so long (since I was 10 and didn't know any better) that I can't seem to change it in my vocabulary.

Secondly, in the photos. Yes, he is in a Starbucks cup. I find it easier to acclimate/float fish in a cup than a bag so my husband (who works at Starbucks) brought me home a nice, clean, unused cup that I rinsed well. After the pictures were taken his lovely little cup was settled down into his temporary 1.5 gallon home to start the acclimation process.

Now, on to the good stuff!

Fish was bought on aquabid.com from seller Betta_afinity (yes, only 1 "F")
Her feedback page: http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...&Betta_afinity

I'd highly recommend her as a seller. Well packed for current weather, extremely reasonable cost-wise, beautiful fish!

Sorry for him being a little out of frame when I'm trying to show you things, my little point and shoot is so tiny (I mostly use my big ol' DSLR) it's hard to figure out what to point things at! Also, sorry about there being so much of my ghostly legs involved, ugh XD

He's got gold/yellow parents and is super shiny. At only 4 months old I can't wait to see what Sméagol turns into. (yes, his name is Sméagol, all my bettas are gonna be hobbits, lol)
