Back to Bettas!

My re-introduction to fishy fun started when I came upon Petco's baby bettas. (It has been years since I've had fish, but I've always wanted to have them again someday) I curiously looked into the jars, only "window shopping", not really expecting to get one. Well, I saw this pretty, shiny, multicolored, pale little thing who was so TINY. I found my heartstrings being pulled, and before I knew it, the little guy was in my shopping cart along with my intended purchase of dog food. Soon, little baby betta got the name Flash!

Four days later...

Three days after adopting Flash, I was back at Petco for some food for little Flash (I had been reading up on how to care for these fragile little guys!) when I perused back over by the baby bettas. I told myself I was just looking, but I knew I had an alterior motive. I really wanted to get another one! Amongst the dreary, grey babies, this little red, energetic fishy caught my eye. Somehow I managed to just walk out with the food and not the betta. However, the whole next day, 10/20/2014 while I was at work, I was thinking about the little thing and so what did I do? On the drive home from work, I stopped back and adopted baby betta number two! It took a couple days to decide on a name (Dragon for a boy? Ruby for a girl?) when finally the name Lava was decided upon.

Here are some pics of Flash on 10/20/2014, the day that Lava was adopted. In a couple of days, it seems like he'd changed so much! I noticed what might possibly be the beginning of marbling near his head? Also, a mysterious notch had formed in his tail. It didn't seem to affect him, though! I was beginning to learn that Flash was full of energy and spunk!
