Jensen peeked his head out from the weeds, happy that the larger betta saved him. "U..um...Thank you for saving my life." He called out to the betta, staying in his hiding place, afraid of the other being hostile to him

"Erm... you're welcome." I said. This was the first time I'd spoken to another betta since I was but a fry, and I was felt rather awkward. I looked down at the tiny, defenseless betta, and knew that I could never hurt it, knew that it was my responsibility to protect it, and that it would never survive on its own.

Jensen swam to a tiny opening in the weeds and started to make his own bubble nest which he did to relieve stress. "Did you get dumped in this horrible place too? My mommy and daddy humans didn't like that I wouldn't breed and the females would beat up on me, so here I am." He paused and flared at a half submerged piece of aluminum seeing his reflection in it.

It'd been a while since I was dumped, and so I felt that I'd have a look around. I emerged from behind my little plant, and munched on a mosquito larva that came wriggling my way. I kept swimming for a time, taking in the scenery. Suddenly, I came face-to-face with a huge green copper dragon HMPK female. She was flaring to her full extent, and I weakly flared back. I really didn't want to fight! She suddenly lunged at me, and I darted off. She followed.

How DARE this tiny male intrude in my new territory? Wasn't it bad enough that they made me share back in the clear boxes? Was it really so much to ask to have my own little piece of water?

He changes direction swiftly, and I attack from above, but my jaws close on nothing and I shoot past, puzzled. I turn to see that tiny flash of blue retreating, and notice his peculiarly humped back and missing dorsal fin.

More out of curiosity than aggression now, I follow. I'm much faster than the little blue oddball, and quickly catch up again. In my peripheral vision I see other fish flitting past. I'll show them that this is my pond!...but not now. Now I want to get a proper look at this blue thing. Is it really even a fish?

I had just been dumped so rudely into this large putrid looking rice paddy and all I could see were ugly mangled male bettas, I nip at a stupid guppy fry who just decided to approach me as he pleases how rude on his part, I decide to rip him to shreds, I let out a satisfied sigh and decide to find some females to flirt with while they bask in my ultimate glory "huh stupid females".

~~~Neptune the guppy~~~
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!! stupid female bettas always bullying me why dont they pick on someone there own size no one in this paddy understands me why am I the only flipping guppy in this pond. I decide to go and rest near an aquatic fern when suddenly a male betta comes out from behind that very fern I was going to rest by "oh god he's flaring at me" I want to call for help but I know if I do he'll tear me to bits what do I do.

~~~Basta~~~

I flared at a tiny little guppy, completely and utterly prepared to show him who was boss! " I eat pipsqueaks like you for breakfast," I snarled. But something... something stopped me. Maybe it was the terrified look in his eyes, or the way he huddled in a corner, ready to dart away. Whatever it was I couldn't do it. I nudged him. " Oh, calm down. I found a much better fern over there."
Gah. Basta, champions of champions, was now a softy. I see another betta flaring at the weird little guy. I look at him. He seems a wee bit too cocky, I think. Let's fix that.

"Yeah," I said. "Those humans... I don't think they realize that they are hurting us. They only care about that green stuff that they call 'money'. I guess we weren't worth any of it anymore, and they just disposed of us."

~~~Manny~~~
The big female was still following me, but she didn't seem like she wanted to attack anymore. I was running out of oxygen, and I risked darting up to the surface to take a breath of air. The female didn't go after me, she just stared. I suppose she was looking at my crooked spine and my nonexistent dorsal fin, wondering why I was even alive. I had found myself wondering that too, more than once. I would be no use in breeding. My caretaker could have easily tossed my into the oscar tank, but he didn't. Why? I quickly swam downward and darted between two rocks, where the female could not follow me. I could do this because I was so small. I could see her at the entrance, flaring. How long would it be before I had to go up for air again? Would I even make it to the surface without being torn to shreds?

~~~Olive~~~
I peeked out from behind my clump of weeds again. The big plakat seemed preoccupied, talking to a fry. Wait, a fry? I would have thought that this fish, of all bettas, would tear such a small creature to shreds. But I suppose I was wrong. Suddenly, I came face-to-face with a big turquoise veiltail with red fin accents. He flared with all his might, and I flared back. I could take him, make him run for cover, just as I had done to the plakat. Or could I?

Mind if I join?

Name:Yuki
Age (human years): 2
Breed: Splendens
Gender: Female
Tail type: double halfmoon
Color: white
Personality: friendly
Noteworthy: She is blind in her left eye

Name: Prince
Age (human years): 4 months
Breed: Splendens
Gender: male
Tail type: crowntail
Color: copper
Personality: inquisitive, and a show-off
Noteworthy: he would rather give up his territory than fight another male.

Yuki:
The sudden change in water sent my body into shock, I floated in place wondering what had happened. A human had scooped me into a cup and I thought I was being moved to a spawning tank like I had been many times before, but this wasn't right. Suddenly a flaring crowntail male appeared in front of me, coming from my left. Startled, I took a quick breath of air and dove away further into the pond to hide myself. Safe in my hiding spot I looked around and noticed that I was around more betta than I had initially thought. I carefully looked around and noticed that I had swam into a hiding spot very close to a purple and white female and a turquoise blue male, both veiltails. I sliently debated whether to flee again, or remain hiding.

Prince:
A bit disoriented after being poured into the pond I looked around my new surroundings, I noticed more betta nearby and was wondering what to do when a pretty white female dropped in a few inches away from me. I instantly flared up and headed in her direction, hoping to show off my copper fins. I swam around her left side and watched dejectedly as she ran from me without so much as a second glance. I decided not to follow, and surveyed the surrounding area. Having never been in such a vast area, I began to explore.

I glared at the other fish.

"I shall never team up with you, arrogant fool. I have had a better time in the single day that I've lived in this place then I ever had when I lived at the breeder's. You can do as you please, but count me out."

And I swam off in the opposite direction, gills flared.

I sigh. This tiny fish was in danger with so many hungry fish, so how in the world could he talk about... favorite colors and bloodworms? I admit, I was grudgingly impressed. I needed to be careful though. How did I know he was trustworthy? " I guess we just try to stay away from other bettas. You had a pretty close call just now, lets not have a replay of that." As of now I didn't want get in a mess with other fish. I just wanted to sleep. "You say you know this place. How about finding a decent place to get some rest?"

I cautiously follow neptune and try to keep up with him. It was like he had a sugar rush or something." Your going to have to slow down or-" Just then I rammed right into a copper crowntail. " AHEM", I said glaring at him and began to flare.
