It's crazy how addicting Bettas are! I started with Fred, who is now thriving. He does his happy little dance when he sees me (except he's not such a happy camper on Sundays when I don't feed him, lol). And, it sounds silly, but he's really added so much happiness to my life. I like making him happy. He's blossomed so much and I wanted to help another Betta.
So I talked hubby into letting me get another 5 gallon tank for the other side of my desk. That way when I work (from home) I have Fred on my right and the new Betta on my left.
So we went to Petco and I fell in love with a Double tail and had to bring him home. Here's a (bad cellphone) picture of him.
And while I was looking at all the Bettas I came across a smaller (although not baby) Betta. He was alert and looked me straight in the eyes, almost begging me to take him home. His container says he's a Halfmoon, but I have no idea if if he is or not. His fins are a mess.
So, even hubby agreed we needed to rescue him. They agreed to give us a discount because of his condition. He'll now by my daughter's fish, although, of course, he's really my third -- and final or hubby'll kill me -- fish.
Here's a couple pictures of him.
I posted in the emergency section asking advice for how to help him if anyone has any ideas.
I'm going to have to steer clear of the Betta section in stores from now on because I absolutely cannot bring anymore home. I love them so much and want to help them all. I'm going to have to be content with my three. I think they should come with a warning, warning, is very addictive! lol
And we need naming advice for them both, any ideas?
