First Betta, Blyth Tait! :)

I went to Petsmart today to pick up cat food. I usually breeze past the shelf loaded with little cups full of mysterious blue water and a little angry fishies... but the recent Koko's betta craze had me curious.

I found one I loved but I wasn't convinced I needed it so I continued to the kitty section. While I was deciding whether to get the cats Turkey Liver Patte or Salmon Symphony I noticed a little boy browsing the bettas. I saw he was picking up "mine" and I totally freaked.

I strolled over there with my cart and I picked up another betta that I liked (but not as much) and I raved about it to the husband. I then put it back on the shelf and went to the doggie toy section.

My plan worked! The boy bought it. I felt sort of bad.. but that one was nice too :P

Anyway, here is my new betta! His name it Blyth Tait. He settled in the 10 gallon very quickly :)

He's gorgeous!

And no worries, I've done that a number of times to make sure I got the one I wanted. Even managed to convince a kid that you could only have one betta period,and that they'd try to attack each other even if they were in different rooms. :peeka Not sure what's worse: that I told the kid that, or that he believed me...xD

Hahaha, did you tell him that they would jump out of their tanks or what? :rofl

Thanks! He looked so healthy and responsive that I couldn't resist.

Alex, don't you know that cat food is over rated when bettas are involved? :rofl3
