That disappointing moment when your LFS keeps their bettas in worse conditions than the chain stores. Don't carry any tanks under 20 gallons and only have like four varieties of heaters all wildly overpriced.

I hate that, Amber

My favorite LFS closed while I was taking a hiatus and I'm really bummed. The woman who ran it was very old, I hope she didn't die or something.

I did end up walking out with a pretty multicolor boy who is mostly purple/lavender. But yeah, not super thrilled right now. To top things off they were super unfriendly, so YAY /sarcasm





And his home for now.


He's currently getting acclimated now that the water is at temp.

He's definitely lavender although it doesn't photograph super well on my phone camera.

10 years ago, I had a collection of bettas. My first was my favorite, and we went through a lot together, including his bout with cancer. Once they all died, I was betta-less for several years. A few years ago, I felt I really wanted another betta, and I bypassed some gorgeous little guys in favor of a weak, dull looking yellowish guy who seemed to have a personality like that of my rock star betta of old. While not the flashy butterfly/mustard gassy style I have always been drawn to, he was a pretty thing in his own right once he got settled in a clean, heated tank. I lost him this winter, and I don't know when I'll get another.

Lupin got moved out of the 20 gallon, and into a 2.5 gallon with his own water wisteria.

He's been dead for a few years now, but this was Alpha, the coolest, most personable fish I've ever known!



He was an absolute riot. He's not dead or dying in this picture, he's just sleeping...DRAPPED OVER a leaf! LOL
