Monday after work, I went to get a new fish. I stood and stared at all the males (cause I wanted a male this time) for a good hour almost trying to decide. I didn't want to get a blue one (even though they were cool looking) because blue is the most popular. I didn't want a red one either because, well, I don't like the color red much except for holiday decorations. So, it came down to a yellow one or a pearl/iridescent one.
I decided the pearl/iridescent one. Meet Jack (he's on the lower left side by the seahorses):
By the way, this picture sucks, but it was hard to get a good one.
He looks so much better in person.
Jack is an active little fish and will try to fight his reflection too! I named him Jack because this reminds me of Jackie Chan (you know, a really cool fighter and the betas are fight fish, hee hee, get it...)
I also moved the tank to another table that isn't so close to the window and put a towel around the bottom to keep it warmer. I want to get one of those stick on thermometers to put on the tank so I can monitor the water temp. It's just a little too early to turn the heat on in the house. (It's only mid-October, for crying out loud!)
I hope Jack will last longer than 4 months. I even gave him some blue jewels, you know, cause he's cool like that.
