|Indy, red, white, & blue tricolor|
After a light fixture failure necessitated the replanting of my big tank, I dropped in on AquaBid to look for plants. I knew I should have just logged off when I couldn’t find the plants I needed, but, no, I had to browse the betta section and then I found him, a red, white & blue, tri-color. The breeder called him a “Super Fancy Dragon”. As you can see from the above photo, this totally superlative description in no way did him justice. With the 4th of July holiday approaching, I knew I had to have him. A couple of emails and a Paypal transfer later, “Indy” (for Independence Day) and two female companions are making their way from Thailand.
This blog will chronicle my reacquaintance with betta keeping. I hope to share my enthusiasm for this most beautiful and entertaining of fishes with those who drop by.
