It was an adoption so she shipped him priority on Saturday and he arrived Monday at 3 pm.
He was delivered to the door.
But he was so very pale with brown stress stripes and he was supposed to be red.
She warned me that he lost color when he got stressed and that he was the smallest of his spawn mates and the only male she'd known that ever got stress stripes.
Sorry am babbling bc of lingering guilt issues.
Today am drip acclimating my female betta to her new big 5 gallon tank which has driftwood in it so it's pH is different.
Thank you so much for this thread!
