I rescued a beta from Walmart tonight. Some idiot opened his container and put coffee beans in the water. I'm surprised he was alive, the beans had already made the water yellow and smelled heavily of coffee. It was also completely clouded with fish waste. (There was a beta in crystal clear water right beside him, it was just the two of them.)

I took him to customer service to complain and the lady told me that he was just gonna go right back to the fish department and that nobody was going to change his water because they weren't supposed to. They said that the dealer is supposed to handle the care of the fish, so the employees would do nothing, just in case the fish came like that. How stupid is that?! He didn't come to them with coffee beans in there and nobody noticed, his container was slightly open, showing that he was tampered with. What's more is she suggested that it wasn't coffee, that they were watermelon seeds and that he probably came to them with "watermelon in the water".

I certainly wasn't gonna let him either be forgotten about and die behind the service counter or put back in the fish department to die in the shitty/coffee water, so I bought him. She offered to take off 49 cents, but it wasn't worth it, I just wanted him out of there to either get better or die in some clean water in a home.

He seems to be doing fine now, so I decided to name him Mocha. Mocha Fraps.

I escaped Florida in March of '10 and moved to Pennsylvania and live with my boyfriend as well as my "hetero life mate". I've been using DeviantArt since about 2004 and I started out posting things that I did for fun. I've since become a professional artist, with my art sometimes used by businesses, schools, and sports teams on their merchandise.

I also design and assist in building mascot suits for Keystone Mascots.

I'm a freelance artist, and I do commissions of many kinds for anybody, not just for businesses! So feel free to ask me.

I still very much enjoy manga and anime and will never turn my back on it, so expect for that stuff to never stop coming!
