Beautiful betta

    Has anyone else ever gone into a fish store, and gone straight to the bettas? I did this today, even though I knew I wasn't able to buy another for 2 weeks. Anyways, while I was looking, I saw 1 Koi betta fish. There were some elephant fin bettas, and some kings too.

    I now desperately want a koi betta fish, but I know that once my tank is 100% clear from all ich, the fish will be sold. It's guaranteed.
    I also know I can't ask to buy one from this forum for a while.

    Has this ever happened to any of you guys? You see a beautiful fish, want it, but can't have it for whatever reason.

    My reason is that I didn't want to get it sick.

    All the time. I have TONS of pictures of bettas that I would love to have but have no space for.

    The white one isn't s koi;)
    I have an extra filter running on all my tanks just for this reason, I've started get more girls though(since I have a sorority) but every once in a while you come across that one fish.

    Koi's will have 3 colors, he is a mostly white betta, with a dot on his side, making him a marble.

    Ah ok that makes sense, but he does have three colours. Maybe just not enough? Thanks for letting me know, I love learning about bettas!@MomgooseALaMode, I totally get it. My phone is loaded with random fish...

    He has three? I only see white and black, eye color doesn't count. Either that or I need new glasses

    I was talking about this one
    The "paradise" ones are actually called a mustard gas. Petco changed the name to make it more appealing.

    Oh haha, that makes way more sense. I was thinking it looked like a white koi, but didn't know if they are white they aren't koi or something haha. Yeah I love that guy, there where was another guy like him, but he was prettier. Pure white with some black spots on his fins.:)
