Hey fellow fishlorians! I am here today to tell you about my most recent betta purchase. He was an impulse buy, but don’t worry, I have a good set up for him. Today was just an average day going to one of my best local tropical fish stores, I was buying some supplies when I decided to glaze over the betta section, sure enough I found Butch. Butch was front and center and I had to struggle through a few people to get a good look at him. Everyone was “oohing” and “ahhing” at this betta, I couldn’t believe my eyes he was the largest betta I’ve ever seen! There were a few people negotiating a price with the owner when I decided that since I had the money I should just go for it. The current price was $50 so I handed over the money and said “I need this fish” the owner sold him to me since I come in regularly and he knows I had a good home for him. So I stopped by petco and grabbed some simple supplies then proceeded home. I set him all up in an 8 gallon sterilite box with a cycled sponge filter, one of those flat heaters, a floating log, a leaf hammock, and a silk plant. He is about 4-5” including the tail and has a gorgeous blue and white marble to him. He was such a steal. I will get some pics tomorrow as to not stress him out but I absolutely love him. I can’t decide between Butch or Humphrey but let me know which one you like better. Don’t worry, he is going into a 20 long after I move in a few days and finish setting it up and this isn’t permanent, he will have his own mansion. I will probably do frequent water changes (2-4x per week) until I set up the 20 long to keep the parameters in the correct range. He really is a one of a kind betta.
