Today i went to Petsmart and picked up my new betta, Eclipse. He's been there for the past two weeks and i just HAD to go get him! His cup was nasty! And when i got there, there was a little girl holding his cup and saying,"He's so ugly." Made me really mad! Anyways after closer inspection i was shocked. He was labeled a halfmoon but he's a dragon!! Then i went up to the desk and complained and they said thats how they got him so they couldn't do anything... Then this guy told me that he was actually a SHE! I was really confused then, so i went and told the manager (during that time my parents acted like they didnt know me lol). She then looked at him and said,"I'm going to put him behind the system." Then i was really confused. She said that if he was labeled improperly they couldn't sell him/her. My parents came up when she left and asked where my betta was. I started to cry(Lol give me a break im 12). Then my mom got angry and demanded that they gave him/her back. So finally they did...... END.

That was really long sorry!! Well soon Eclipse will be in his/her own 3gal. filtered tank!!!

Is Eclipse a he or a she???


Ecilipse in his/her nasty cup


Eclipse in his/her new water


Eclipse next to his/her soon to be new home :)

Thanks!!! I just put him in his tank! It looks like he has some scars or ammonia burns, but he's really active and curious :)

i luv that little guy very pretty >w<
petstore employees don't know anything, they just want money, it makes me sick >:[
i overheard some employee saying to some customers, after spawning betta fish the female EATS the male, and am like " what the heck is she talking about? betta's don't each, stupid" but i didn'y tell it to her face. instead i tried to correct her but she ignored me like "am trying to do something here", she must've thought i was just some kid getting a fish am only 13. the customers where a bit confused to XP

[email protected] Yup! My biggest tank yet! Im thinking about adding 3 neon tetras... Would that be okay or overstocking? And i'm going to add a snail into Dancer's cuz the rocks get really slimy, blech. For my birthday we will DEFIANTLY have the same! My options are 6-7 more bettas or 1 more betta and a hamster or other small rodent. What do yah think?

[email protected] We figured out that he is a HE. Haha! I'm guessing by your username that you're a warrior cat fan? Maybe? (if i'm wrong, then i'm throughly embarrassed)

Nah, I wouldn't add anything else too it. 1" of fish per gallon of water. :) And I would get 1 more betta and another animal. :) I got a leopard gecko, my favorite pet now in the whole wide world. I already want another one. <3 :D

hey, wanna know a trick to telling if its a male/female? females have an egg thing on their stomachs, just look through the bottom of the cup and see if she or he has a white dot there

[email protected] Okay, sure! Yea that's what i was thinkng :p My dad said that he'd get my last betta from thailand! But my mom doesn't want me to have anymore animals, but..... It'll probably end in my favor anyways~

[email protected] We already figured out that he's a male, but your advice wouldn't help much because he's all white to begin with! Haha! Thanks though!

:) That's just what I would do. :) I am a huuuuge animal love, so I'm always for more animals, but sometimes a new kind of animal is great and fun. :)
