my baby :

Today’s a very special day for a very special boy!

…not that he knows it. 

One year ago today, I met my betta Bailey and brought him home on a whim with a discount 2.5g and a cycling 5.5g. We’ve been through three tanks and four scapes together in only a year, and look at his transformation!

He went from a pale pink that my mother and I just fell in love with:

To a stunningly strange lookin’ feathery mess he is today:

Here’s to another year of grumps. <3 Happy “take-home” day, Bailey~
