New Betta!

I was roaming around Wal-Mart and this adorable little creature stood out to me.

She just looked so sad, In her little cup that was so low on water that her top fin was above the water when she laid on the bottom of the cup.

I brought her home, acclimated her slowly over 3 hours just to not shock her [ because from her conditions she didn't appear to be in the best of condition ] and put her in the tank with my two other female Bettas.

She is so beautiful! She is already eating like a little pig, to! She devoured a whole load of brine shrimp

Anyways, enough talking! Heres the new Cutie, Descent... Short for Irridescent because of her light bluish green glow against the white.

This pic is of her in the bag just before I let her go.

Descent.... I like!

My friend just got a male betta- she named him Gil- because he has them. *wink*
Marlin: Okay, a mollusk walks up to this sea cucumber, well he doesn't actually walk, he's just there, and he turns to the sea cucumber, and... Well, wait, there's a mollusk and a sea cucumber and...
Chum: You know for a clown fish, he's not that funny.
