Okay ... so the big news today was I got my 20G Long as stated in my other thread. So now I have a question for you. Read the following scenario and please tell me if I am cruel... At store #4 on our quest to find a tank divider, my partner and I discovered the store had none. Before heading off to store #5 ... I had to stop and look at the bettas. My partner noticed a pretty veiltail that he liked ... but up in the corner of the rack was a red female that was zipping all over her cup. I picked her up to look at her and noticed large prominent stress lines. I educated my partner as to what those were and why she had them. He knew we were in trouble and immediately signaled that it was time to press on in our search for the divider. As we took one last glance and the female betta and others, my partner noticed one that had already passed away. He is very sensitive to this (he found Aadyn James had passed away while I was on the road flying and was inconsolable when he called me!) and I knew we had to leave immediately before he started crying right there in Petco! We drove off to store #5 (a LFS) and I couldn't stop thinking about the red betta girl. I mentioned her to him again while we were at the next store and then it flew out of my mouth: "If we don't go back to save her, she's going to end up dead like the other one you saw. Do you want that to happen to her?" Am I a cruel person for saying this? Turns out, we did go back to the previous store to pick up the red girl. Unfortunately, she looked particularly bad the second time we looked at her. I checked out the other female bettas, deadset on giving one of them a home. Fortunately, my partner and I both laid eyes on the cutest crowntail female who (in her death cup) was green with some purple in her fins. I knew I couldn't bring the red one home in her condition (like I said my partner would lose it if she died on us) and the green girl looked to be in great condition for being in a betta cup. I decided we'd take the green girl. After moving my three boys into the 20G Long, I moved the green girl into Vanguard's old 5G tank. Tomorrow I will post pictures, but I'm happy to tell you one of those vacated tanks is going to great use and my little girl is busy swimming about. Because she is purple and green we named her Kiwi, after KIWI International Airlines.
