OK! Because I miss my white Betta, I did go out and set up another 1 gallon tank. Patriot is absolutely stunning and is doing very well, but I missed having my white fish. I have had the tank set up for a few days and have been on the search. It's a hard search. No whites to be found anywhere. But then again, Frosty was the first white I had ever seen in a pet store (actually Wally World).
So we went to BJ's last night up in Albany. There is a Petco in the same plaza. This is not my favorite store as I always find them over priced, cramped and not the cleanest. But, something told me to go in.
They had a small selection of Bettas. The most active fish I saw was a Crown Tail who was white bodied, black marbling and blue tipped fins. Different. They actually had several Crown Tails. But I was drawn to a pale, normal finned male. The fish associate was very busy and we are all chatting, so through conversation I provde that I am not a novice fish owner.
I asked the associate to look at the pale fish, and asked if he looked healthy to her. She gave him a water change and did inspect him and agreed he did not look the best. Since I had a tank ready, she offered for me to adopt him free of charge if I wanted to give him a chance!
So here is our pale yellow boy. We are unsure of a name - any suggestions??
