The plan was simple. Hit Petco, buy some kitty food for friends. Go home. Ahhh, but it just wasn't that easy.
Instead, we are now the proud owners of a pretty blue Betta fish. This was something I didn't know that I even wanted. In fact, I'm pretty sure I was 100% against pet ownership. But that's all in the past. We are officially a pet owning family.
Now we have the tough part - choosing a name. We are currently thinking "Ali". He got this name because we accidentally dropped him on the ground, breaking his container and nearly suffocating him. So, we figure he's a fighter.
What's this I hear about having to clean the tank? That's optional, right?
