    A Petco cup baby. What can I say... he called out to me and the 6.6 bookshelf tank was ready for an inhabitant.

    Hey Tigerlily,

    What a beautiful fish.... gorgeous! :;wv That tail fin is amazing!

    OMGosh he is BEAUTIFUL! I love his fins - they are almost clear, correct?
  4. Tigerlily Well Known Member Member

    Thanks, he is pretty isn't he? His fins are almost clear... translucent white with pinkish streaks. There was someone else eying him but he said he keeps his bettas in plastic cookie jar things so there was no way I was going to put Louie back on the shelf even if I'd wanted to. LOL

    what a beautiful rescue! I know he'll love his new tank. :;hug2

    Other betta folk had talked about their fish choosing them. Before Louie I'd chosen my bettas, mostly for attitude or how long they'd been in the lfs tanks. Louie made great eye contact and sucked me right in. LOL

    He loves his tank. It's a 6.6 gallon bookshelf... 24" of length for him to swim... and he does, from end to end and back again. Cracks me up.

    Oh he is loving that space! I saw the 6.6 bookshelf at the store when I was scoping out my 20GLong ... they're really nice looking tanks! I have no bookshelves, though. LOL

    What a beautiful boy! They do kinda call out to you, don't they? Glad he's in good hands now!

    My bookshelves are filled with books (fancy that!) so his tank sits on the top of a bookshelf from which I had to "re-home" dog related trophies and artwork. Silly doggies, shelves are for fish!
