HI thought I'd share Beast. I've only had him for a week. Here he is in his new 5.5 gal. Things seem okay so far...I got him from PetCo. Only thing that has be curious is he is still a bit shy, is that OK for today just being the 5th day I've had him? Also, he kind of flares big at the back of the tank...there was a background with some bright colors here and there so I switched to plain blue... is he just crazy?

very pretty boy. he should become less shy, and more interested in you, in a short time. he's just adjusting.

Wow what a cool looking betta. Love the fin span and the light blue color on the fins. Great pick up.

I went to PetCo with the intention of getting more black sand for my 10 gallon and I hadn't been inside our new PetCo yet and was so sad when I saw probably over 100 Betta to pick from. I didn't plan to get one but when I saw all of them I was taken!

Correction...I was sad that so many were in little cups but taken at the vast selection.

He sure is a pretty boy! I don't think he's crazy I think he is just young. Petco also sells Betta mirrors if ya wanna get him one to flare at. He would love it!

Betta mirrors can be good for your betta, but remember, it can put a lot of stress on your fish if left in/next to the tank for over five minutes.
