My two dragon crowntail bettas arrived last Wednesday from Harpua and they are really beautiful! They are an iridescent color so their color appears to change as they move.For the most part their color seems to be blue and the one has some red on his analfin and head. When they go to the back of the tank they turn this gorgeous copper color!

For names I was thinking Ice for the one that is predominantly blue and Fire for the one that has the red analfin and head. Any other suggestions?

This is the one I am thinking of naming Ice:

Wow, awesome bettas. They look like they are checking you out too, great pictures! I like the Fire and Ice names. You've got me wanting to adopt another betta (or 10) but I have no room... lol

What makes them copper crowntails, cuz they are only copper colored when the light hits them a certain way or is it the fact that they are iridescent that makes them copper CTs?

hmmmm....maybe I could get a 5 gallon, i could prob make room or maybe a 10 gallon and divide it or a 20 long then I could divide it and drool Hey wait a minute, I'm trying to be good and not setup anymore new tanks or get new fish at least till Iv made the upgrade I want....don't encourage me


...I am going shopping for fish stuff this weekend....


I'm curious what makes them Copper Crown tails too. Iv never heard of that before. I'm not to up to speed on all the color variations though. They do have a little bit of a metallic look to them..Very cool.

I know how that is! Thats when you see some tank combo deal with everything you need and you end up walking out with a new tank!

yeah but regardles of what my bettas are I just know they are gorgeous and I wouldn't trade them for any other!

I really like your CT's. I have two one with black and red on his fins. Hope you plan to
breed them as I think they would make nice spawns!
