So, where should I start? I guess with how I got my fish. I went to petco and bought them. The end. Just kidding
I had my first ever Betta when I was 4. He was a B-day present from my parents. I know he was purple, and I think he was probably a VT. I remember that after he died we went to home depot. My memory is weird. SIP Fishy.
The next Betta I had was was a blue VT with red ventrals. He had fin rot when I brought him home, but he got better. He only lived 4-5 months though
His name was Sea Star.
Now I have 2 Bettas at the same time, Raspberry and Sunspot.
Raspberry is the CT and Sunspot is the little one. I don't know what he is, he's still just a baby, but I'm thinking probably a delta. I got Raspberry a year after Sea Star died. I knew I wanted a CT and he wasn't really the prettiest fish there, but I wanted him for an unknown reason, and I got him.
A few weeks ago my Dad bought me a used 5 gallon and I was like, Yay! Room for more fish! So I went to petco and just browsed a little. They had a lot of really little babies, colorless and everything. I knew I wanted a baby, but not one that little. Then I saw Sunspot and I was like 'MINE' I had said I wasn't getting another blue/red fish, but here I am! Fishy remains my only Betta that was not blue and red.
This Raspberry's first (puny) bubble nest.
He only made it after I put in that big blue silk plant. He absolutely adores it. It's kinda funny, he's always in it.
Sunspot is hand-fed, it's a lot of fun. Unfortunately, Raspberry refuses being hand-fed. Wow, this is a long post. I think I should stop before you lose interest if you haven't already. More about other stuff tomorrow. I can't always promise pictures, but expect a lot of words!
