I had a moment of narcissism and picked him out because his colors match those of my mermaid tail.
I bought him at about 2:30 today and didn’t get home until now at 1am. He’s been chilling in his little betta cup and riding around in my purse all day :)
Some girls have chihuahuas in their hand bags, mermaids have bettas
So I’m reading about how to take care of betta fish since I want to have Echo around for a really long time. I found out he’s a lot like me!!
Btw I’m gonna be very embarrassed if someone sees his photo and be all “Yeah…so Echo’s a female.” !!!
So! Echo and I have a lot in common. He doesn’t have gills (I think?) so he has to get his oxygen from surfacing on the water and getting air. That’s cool though because it means he doesn’t need a air pump or filter. He also has the same colors as my mermaid tail and is a really picky little thing. He likes temperatures between 75F and 82F. My preference is really 73-78 BUT CLOSE ENOUGH! xD oh! And Echo’s hella picky about his food! He prefers freeze dried brine shrimp and betta bits over anything else. Like, he won’t EAT anything else! Whoa!!
So, I had a great day and made a new friend. How are you?! :D
Spending time with friends and people I like is hundreds of times more enjoyable than doing things on my own. With people I feel not “sad and lonely and bored”. Which is what I have been for weeks. With my friends I have been happy and having fun and getting to know folks better.
I tried to screen cap all the nice things you’ve been saying to say thank you to everybody but I can’t figure it out. ^___^. Y'all make me so happy. I’m exhausted and so not digging the current layout of this mermaid website draft thing J and I are doing but oh my god you guys really make me smile. Thank you. There is not enough words for all the feels I am feeling. Gratitude and contentment. And joy. And it’s not enough words still.
I am delirious apparently but y'all have my love. Love love love
