For the longest time I HATED veiltails and crowntails. I thought they looked tacky. I swore I'd never get them. I used to rail against veiltails calling them lame, and inbred. Well I started to have a hankering for a purple betta. I looked at some photos and found myself falling in love with the purple veiltails. It was really strange! Well one day I was at petco and I saw this amazing purple veiltail. Forgetting my boycott of veiltails I purchased him! Now he is healthy and living in a divided tank! And I am super surprised! He looks amazing! Better than my halfmoon! I guess its not good to judge a book by its cover!
Jarvis is my crowntail. I HATE crowntails. I thought they looked like they perpetually had finrot. Well..I happened to see this amazing pink/purple and blue marbled dumbo eared crowntail. As with Baker the veiltail I forgot all my hatred of crowntails and purchased him. Strange how tastes change!
