Not sure if you guys remember a few weeks ago, I posted about buying a fish through AB. Anyway I bought the fish right after the shipment to Canada and the next one wasn't for a couple of weeks.. no problem! I was sad when the seller emailed me saying my fish had died, for some un-known reason. Okay fine :( Got my money back and that was all fine and dandy. I wasn't planning on getting another fish, I was too crushed that my first fish in a year died before even getting to me. Then I had some big stupid fight with friends and I was just feeling like crap, SO I went to one of the best pet stores in Ottawa (ive boughten a few fish from them before.. they go to a canadian breeder and hand pick a bunch) and I found the little apple of my eye :) Spartacus
They had a BUNCH of really pretty ones, but as soon as I saw my little dude.. I had to have him. He is a blue/red HM with some marbling on his body (lighter and darker blues.. but you can't see with the pics) I always look for the most active fish when choosing and this guy wasn't as active as I wanted but his beauty took me over! Once we got home I only had a 2gal with a lid and some plants.. so he had to 'rough' it for a few days. Then I got my favorite tank, the Aqueon 2.5 mini bow (they actually had this one for $10 less cuz it is a 'betta' one and has a divider for 2 fish... I through the divider away!) got him a heater some gravel and a log and voila! His second night in his new home he built a HUGE bubblenest (right beside Tee) and now realized that IM really fun because I give food! He is right beside me desk so he keeps me company :)
OKAY enough blabbering! Here is SPARTACUS!
he isn't a fan of the camera ;)
