After waking up this morning to find Beck dead in the hospital tank, I wasn’t expecting very much good from today. I have no idea where the Ick infection he had came from and I’m nervous that I might have contaminated my community tank. Beck definitely spread it to Adam’s 10 gallon, which is frustrating. And my female koi Betta has ick as well, so not sure how that is going to turn out.
When I went to Adam’s house in the afternoon, he told me “you’re going to be mad at me.” After delaying the reason why by showing me the new sword plants he bought, he walked me over to his desk where a Petco King Betta was busy nosing around a Kritter Keeper.
It turned out to be the exact fish I had been fawning over the day before, when we had gone to purchase some substrate. Sparkly, spotted and absolutely ridiculous. I am a lucky woman 😊
Meet my new boy! He is spoony and hunchy and has the most absurd Mohawk. Adam says he looks like a bottle nose dolphin, and I say he is a fish with a porpoise in life. He eats like a pig and splashed all over his cup after being packed up for the drive home. He doesn’t have a name yet. But I am absolutely in love with this little beast, and the man who gave him to me 😉
