    Odd name huh? Meet my new betta, Zacapple :;fb The name is two names joint to one. Apple was suggested by my sister, Zac was my idea. :D

    I went to the store today to get some feeder fish for my turtles, ended up coming out with a bag of feeder fish and a betta. In the store, I passed a rack of bottles with bettas in them. It was saddening just watching them. Some were so lifeless... So I HAD to take one home. Was sad I couldn't take all of them. :(

    He's so photogenic, unlike Macho. He even stared at me when I was taking his photo :) He's pretty cheaky too!

    P.S Sorry about the photo quality. There wasn't much light and flash would just spoil the whole thing.

    Thanks everyone.

    The bottles and cups are open, so they can actually jump. Found one on the floor when finding Zacapple :(

    Oh my goodness!!
    Those conditions are terrible, I had heard about bettas being kept in cups in the U.S but that is horrific to see!!
    Here in England the bettas are kept in the platy tanks and all look fine, I assume being in a platy tank is better than a cup?!

    Those bottle are so narrow! A big fighter like some of my boys would not be able to turn around in something that skinny, but they are filled more with water than the cordial cups here are. :eek:
    He is a different looking colour, what would you describe it as?

    He's so pretty, Peacemaker! He looks a lot like Remmy, my veiltail. Maybe they're related hehe :p

    Nice to meet you Zacapple!

    Yeah. It was hard to watch them pull out Zac from his narrow bottle. Right now, he's still a little weak. Will feed him tonight and watch his progress. I don't know how to describe his color. LOL The first time I looked closely at him, he reminded me of apples :D And he has those red spots on his tail.

    Cool. Probably Remmy's cousin :)
