Finally went and got him

    this is our new betta, for my bedroom tank. he is red with blue-ish dots, that almost make him look purprle at a certain angle, and i believe we are naming him Edge, since he is a Crown tail. i wasnt able to find the ADF's that are going to be his tank mated =( that was the first time ive went to petco or petsmart and not seen them, figures lol

    I don't know much about the store in Fenton, I only go to Gravios bluffs to get my haircut and stop by Barnes and Noble. I go to the store in arnold almost and the one in south county ( it's on Lemay Ferry right south of I-255/270, if you haven't been there) and a LFS called Tropical world Pets near Kirkwood almost every Friday, I will let you know if any of these stores get any, if you would like. Might save you a trip.

    out of all the betta's that i looked at in arnold, and fenton, this one, out of probably a hundred was the only one that reacted to me and showed any kind of emotion at all

    He is so handsome! And his tank looks like a nice fun place

    i have all kinds of specialty things for him lol, big leafs for him to rest on, all silk plants, i have a little suction cup betta hammock thing coming. i have the filter baffled so the current isnt too strong for him, the filter intake covered with nylon so it cant suck his fins in. the hiding places such as the 2 terra cotta pots and the little log are really more for his soon to be tank mates hopefully, 2-3 ADF'S

    I'll have to get over to Petco on Saterday, then. That betta looks spoiled in that tank. Of course, there are worse fates :)

    very neat layout and decorations for the betta.
    I'm sure he's very appreciative of it.
    The contrast of colors really brings out the color of the betta.
    Way to go!
