About three weeks ago I was in Petco after frozen rats, and as usual I looked at the bettas. There was a STUNNING HM male, silver with red fins, and I almost left the store with him. Then I saw another STUNNING CT male, I was so torn and decided to try a male in my community tank (all my females are gone) so I decided on the CT because of the price difference. He is doing fantastic in my 23, but I can't get a decent picture of him! Anyhow, earlier this week I lost my 3 year old CT male and was totally bummed about it. I went in Petco today, and my gorgeous silver and red half moon was STILL THERE! I snatched him up and he's now floating in his cup in my late CT's 2.5 gallon. I'm so happy he was still there and still in great condition, they really seem to keep the betta cups clean at the new Petco! thumbs2:

Thats a nice one!thumbs2:
It looks like they changed the water in that cup soon before you got there."The bottom is pretty clean.

Thanks guys!

NG - I actually noticed a few other males that I had seen there a few weeks ago and they had all been moved around to a different shelf and were in clean water. They all were very healthy looking and active too, which is great considering they've been there for three weeks. I think the reason they didn't sell is they were up too high on one of the plant tanks and were really easy to walk by and miss. The guy working the fish department even stopped me to write me a guarantee, that's never happened before.

Thanks everyone! I tried to get him to flair this morning but he's still a little shy. Actually, I think the current is freaking him out so I had to adjust the outflow. We'll see if he's more settled in tonight!

I've been trying to think of a name, mom started calling him Metallica :rolleyes:
