I walked past my fish’s bowl on Thursday, and it seemed kinda brownish… since I had just changed it on Tuesday, it seemed odd… found him decomposing on the bottom of the bowl, don’t have a clue why he wasn’t floating.  Waaaah, I loved that fish. 

Well, today I called the two closest pet stores to me, and they both had bettas.  I went to the closest one, thinking that if they didn’t have one I liked I could catch the bus to the next one… but they did, I have a beautiful new betta buddy named Rainbow.  He doesn’t have any red to speak of, kinda rare in a betta, but he has lots of blue and yellow and (first time I’ve seen this in a betta) GREEN!.

Hugs,
Me

    Awww…I like bettas! Do you have him in one of those vases with the peace lilies? Those are pretty. Good luck with the your new pretty fish.

    I’m sorry for the loss of your fish. I’m glad that you got a new buddy, though.

    @dragonflies_and_lipstick – I still have the original vase I got my first betta in, which had some kind of water plant… the plant is long gone… but I currently use a vase I bought at Ross that holds 1.6 gallons, gives him much more room to swim around and more surface to breathe.

    Sounds very pretty! I kill plants and fish. They take one look at me and go belly up on eye contact.

    @Moonlit_Lass – Bettas are supposed to live only 2-3 years. I’ve had 2 last beyond 4 years, and they would have lasted longer had I not done something stupid. But Midnight only made it to about 2… I hope I have Rainbow a lot longer.
