Had an unexpected surprise tonight! I was talking to my sweet about a spade tail we saw in Petsmart the last time we were there, I noted that Petsmart was still open. So he threw on his shoes looked at me funny while i struggled to fine mine and off to petsmart we went!
I had been mentioning the extra 10 I had and what I should do with it. so now we have Hexen, a black half moon tail and Drwg (pronounces Droog) the oh so pretty Blue spade tail. My Sweet is constructing a barrier for them out of plastic coat hangers and fine linen (I LOVE being married to a crafty man!) I will post pics as soon as their barrier is in place and their area has been done something with. Right now Hexen is in the emergency tank, and Drwg is in the 10.
Oh and I mentioned this else where, but... Fritz is changing colours! he seems to be going for Pink and vivid Blue. he is hiding allot but eating well.
Myr and Saki or fine, they are right now near each other with a cloth covering between them.
I think when I get the chance, I will move Myr into a 10, Hexen into his own 5, and Fritz into his own 5. Dwrg, Myr and Saki will get 10s. Dwrg by the way is Welsh for Wolf, My Sweets screen name is his favorite game is Hexenwolf. Hexen got named because of the Black, and I didn't want to go with just a Night type name, so I thought about WW2 Fighter Pilots and remembers the Nacht Hexen, or Night Witches. I liked the sound of Hexen, then My love pointed out his screen name so we went digging for Wolf in different languages. He has been on a Dr. Who Marathon and remembered hearing a neat word for Wolf (pops up allot from the whole "Bad Wolf" thing). went digging and found Drwg. I was SOLD when it came out sounding just like Droog from A Clockwork Orange. I now have 5 bettas. Wow. only spent 35 dollars on the whole set up tonight!
As for the 30, waiting on the funding to get the 55, I have figured out how to stock it on the cheep. like 170 dollars tops. we just have to be able to get the 55. Herbert is getting more active and my Wisteria is exploding. the angels... are well... my angels. they don't do much. mostly swim and look pretty. same with the Platys. the Mollies are fine and all knocked up! maybe just maybe i will be able to see some fry at some point.
My love is making noises about putting one of the 5 gallons on HIS desk next to his computer. <3 I think Hexen might be his.
I think it is odd we get bettas in pairs, but that seems to be the way of it. Saki and Fritz we got at the same time, and now Hexen and Drwg.
