She just wants to pick one and go, but I want to browse and find a healthy one that also responds positively towards me, etc etc. She used to love shopping, but now she doesn't.

Sorry for your loss Sadist. I just lost Liberty today. I don't know when I'll be able to get another Betta either because my parents never tell me when their going near PetSmart or meijers. I wonder if I should give my mom the money and ask her to pick me out two more but then again I won't be the one choosing the color, tail type or even able to see if it looks healthy... I dunno.. it's one thing to ask them to get community fish but it seems like a completely whole different matter with Bettas.

I'm sorry for your loss, too. Liberty was special. I think it's much better to pick your own fish, too. Health and personality have to be good, and of course no one wants a color fish that they don't like either.

Hubby suggested taking daughter out for dinner last night, so I used up the fish money with that. I probably left a bigger tip than needed, but the lady was very nice and even stuck extra cherries in my milk shake.

He was special.. did your daughter have fun? And I think it's nice to leave a big tip if the person was nice.

My mom said she's going to meijers tomorrow. Unfortunately I'm overloaded on chores and won't be able to go but I asked if I were to give her money would she get me two Bettas and she said if I gave her the money. I really have been interested in having other tail types rather than the common veiltail or crowntail I like the more long and flow tail types. I like rose tails especially. The women I gave guppy to said a few weeks ago they had a few. I couldn't get my mom to take me to go look. As far as colors go I think the only ones I don't like are the ones that have like massively crazy coloring. I like the slightly plain but beautiful ones for example the Bettas that have crazy spots that range in colors but are like whiter. Thats just to crazy for me. If I remember someone on here wrote a post about how to pick out healthier Bettas. Like what to watch out for but I'm having trouble finding it. So I'm more worried about tail types and health rather than coloring when having her pick them out. Today I'll be working on getting dishes done and stapling cardboard to the back of my stand so my sister can't see my 30 gallon. Past week iv had the light off because when it's on she goes after it a whole lot more than when it's off. So the guppies haven't been getting their lighting or their filter for two days because iv been to busy to keep fixing my filter that she tears apart and drops inside the tank.

Well, the veil tail boy at least looks semi healthy. Hopefully, Spikey will warm up in whatever tank he gets. Good luck with them!

Hehe, I like Spikey at least as a nick name for the crown tail.

Best pics I could get of them in the tanks. Blue boy was first checking out the Anubis Nana. He poked around it for about two or three minutes before doing laps around the tank. He got Libertys tank. This morning he had a bubble nest. They both came right to the front of the tank to eat this morning but only ate like two bites before doing laps. The crowntail was so adventurous last night. The tank pic is what I did with his with what I had. My brothers girlfriend is borrowing some of my other fake plants plus my filter. She won't listen when I say she doesn't have to throw away her filter cartridge every month. So she's out of cartridges and both my mom and my filter takrs large ones while hers is medium. He seemed to like going through the tube though. So hopefully he enjoys that
