About a month ago the Husband and I went out and got a pet fish. We are not experienced fish owners so we started easy, with a Betta. Since Bettas are notorious for being jerks and fighting a lot we named ours Joffrey after the evil king on Game of Thrones. We thought it was fitting for the breed. Except, we love our Joffrey he's a pretty cool fish! We got him about a month ago and we are seriously surprised that he is still alive. We didn't have our hopes up that he would live long. He was really small when we got him and his fins weren't big and beautiful at the time. He actually looked kind of sickly and we got him cheap at walmart so we assumed he wasn't the pick of the litter. However, now nearly a month later is is doing so good and his fins are big and beautiful and he's a really neat looking fish. Not to mention his sister Aida loves him too and finds him very intriguing!
Then, a coupls weeks ago we were at Petsmart and we got the urge to get more fish. The Husband has always wanted a big fish tank. I do not like fish at all and it was pretty nice of me to agree on a Betta. However, Joffrey actually made me like pet fish a little bit more and Petsmart has some pretty awesome looking fish as well. We ended up leaving with a 10 gallon tank starter kit, a water heater, and some decorations. We had to let the tank sit for about a week so the chemicals could balance out the water and to the heater could get it to the right temperature. So this weekend we went and got three male Fancy Guppies. We started out with three just to be sure they would do well in our tank without dying right away. They are doing pretty good! We have only named one of the new fish yet, which is Captain Jack Harkness. The other two we are still trying to find the right names for. They will all be named after Doctor Who Characters!
