Mom knows I hate foodshopping so she bribed me with a trip to the pet store, I said that if I found a nice EE I would get him and she said sure, then she took me to the store where they usually don't take care of the betta and don't have any selection. Well the first betta I saw had a bent spine, bent up at a 90degree angle and I just couldn't look at him, then I found a few white or whitish/redish EEs but they weren't calling my name. Then I found a nice light purple dumbo, HA!~ She could not have looked more annoyed when I picked up this guy (who still needs a non-female name)

Thank you! Mom and dad agree he should be named "Dumbo" but...

What a pretty EE..or is that Dumbo? and a great mom you have! I did the same thing when my kids were young - lol..they had a fish tank, gekkos, turtles, hamsters, cats, a dog......then there was always that spider in a jar....here's hoping for grandkids so I can do it again :)

Mom admits she "didn't expect me to find one I liked" but hey I have the tank and the money, dad laughed when mom told him how he came to be. I will not name him dumbo, he is shy but also a smidge curious, mostly shy.

He is gorgeous! Take good care of this one! I would have bought him too.
Thank you! He's very shy and missing a ventral, I'm also iffy about the brown fuzz on his head which isn't velvet so... He is very sweet and despite being shy if I'm sitting in bed he'll come check me out, he likes to hide under the almond leaf. He looks purple but if the flash goes off he turns blue. He needs a name

So far my only idea is Mesmer (because he changes color with the camera),but I feel like I should be able to come up with a better name than Mesmer

Maybe Vex, Opal, Permafrost, Hail. Those are just some ones that came to mind when I looked him.

so last night i turned on the light real low, archy was sleeping in his cave but i couldn't find mesmer, he was on top of the almond leaf just flumped there like "nope, im tired, fanning out my fins and sleeping" but i woke him up trying to take the picture, basicly his ears were fanned out flat against the leaf and the water was barely 1mm above the top of his body (so he was fully submerged and in no danger or anything) but awwww
he also begged for food this morning <3
