Please use this topic to post your Betta photos. I'll leave it stickied so it appears at the top of the posts. Let's see different types of bettas out there.

You can also show off your pics in the betta picture gallery.

Cujo and Romeo are having bad tail days, so those are pics when they were having better ones. That's probably the best pic I have gotten of Jett, he is almost impossible to photograph because he is so busy and swims very fast. Plus he recently decided that he hates the camera

is he pinkish in person?
Sometimes.Really depends on the light. Here he is at a different angle, but mostly he looks marbled.
p.s. Your other two girls are so cute and look like they are loaded with personality!;D

Here's my little crowntail friend. He moved right as I snapped it so it made him blur up.

Couple more pics of him.

Wish he wouldn't move so much when he sees the camera phone.

Here is my newest male. Just remember that this isn't my pic, it was sent by the breeder so I knew what he looked like.

The green in those pictures is really more blue-ish in person. Now I have 2 males and 11 babies! I need some more females, a harem of 6 would be nice in my new Asian tank.

My newest betta, his name is Spyder. I rescued him from Petco a couple of months ago. I wanted to take them all, yah know? So depressing there. But I settled on one and behaved

At first he was extremely skittish with the other fish in the tank (tetras, danios, and cory cats), but after a couple of weeks he is doing just fine. Even swims up to my fingers when I drop food in the tank, and loves to swim in and out of this decorative pot I have in there.

Egads! I haven't shared my new boy with you guys yet! He is a red-wash copper VTDT, or so I am told. The LFS just had him under "split", what a horrible name for a wonderful fish. He has the most personality out of all of my bettas in the past and shows no aggression towards the 2 other small males in the tank and my shrimp.

Sorry, I can't get the gallery to accept my s so I have to use photobucket:

Ok so I knew I wanted to eventually get a betta...eventually. I wanted to get a fancy looking one from a breeder online or something..But then today when I was at I sale at the fish store aquarium. I picked up this little guys cup and knew I had to have him..I kept telling myself no but in the middle of the guy ringing me up I told him to add the betta too..He is an all black betta with what looks like red lying underneath but when he flares you can see lil blue areas on his back fin...I allways thought I would get one with a huge tail but....he is the one..lol..everyone meet Othello

Well I haven't been around in a while, so I thought I would bump this thread to introduce my new boy. He's very difficult to photograph because he is extremely busy, places to go and fish to see, etc. I named him George Clooney because he is so very handsome! I think he would be called a butterfly color pattern? He's got a bit of a mess for a tail, I just rescued him from his little cup at petsmart the other day. Hopefully he'll straighten out on his own in his clean, warm tank. He's totally a spaz right now, flaring at his own reflection non-stop. I'm having a challenge getting his attention long enough for him to eat, but so far I've been able to get 2 or 3 pellets in him a day, with patience.

Unfortunately, I lost Jett about 2 weeks ago. He just started going downhill out of the blue, very listless, stopped eating, fins were deteriorating. I medicated him but it didn't seem to help and eventually he settled on the bottom of his tank and just passed away.

Cujo and Romeo are still going strong, as is little Ra the sun god! Guess I need to make a new sig pic one of these days...

My very first fish, a red butterfly Roundtail, Sweeney. I was looking for something red, just so I could call him Sweeney, and the butterfly pattern was just icing on the cake. He had such a personality, always racing around and flaring, with no "off" button to be seen. I lost him a couple of months ago when he choked to death on brine shrimp. I still miss him.

309.jpg

This is Leroidesanimaux (Lah-roy-des-ah-nih-moe), or Leroy for short. Name means "King of the Animals," which kind of suits him, appearance-wise, anyway. He's more shy, I can spend an hour with him and a mirror and I can't get him to flare. Recently, I got him to flare for the first time in probably 6 months when I put him in a jar and put him in another tank with a female-oops-its-a-male. He flared in indignation at the new guy, who just gave him the eagle eye and wandered away.

When I got into hobby, it was because my sister fishsat for her friend's Betta. I tried to do the good thing and give him a water change, but seeing as how this friend didn't give us any conditioner, the poor fish was gone the next morning (a classic 1oz container with no heat). I felt terrible for Dr Seuss, but the friend didn't care at all and went out and got another fish that day. That one was named Ed Gein, but Dr Seuss got me interested in the hobby and I began researching in earnest. Some months later when I already had a 60gal and two Bettas (the above two guys) in their own tanks, Ed Gein came by to be fishsat, and this one I managed to keep alive. Some more months later, the friend decided she couldn't take care of him anymore, and he was given to me. Many more months later, he was worn out (I think he was already pretty old, since he was HUGE, plus the stress of his earlier life), and he started fading. One morning he was gone. He was quite an ordinary fish, dark and dull, and I hate to admit that he wasn't a favorite, but he was a nice guy, and the neatest colors came out of him when I got out the camera (which didn't even have flash, so no colors were falsely affected)

When Sweeney died, I wasn't going to get another fish (not so soon, anyway) but the following weekend, I came across a doubletail female and since you NEVER see doubletails here, I had to snatch her up. And the girl-bug was born, lol. This is Monashee, which means Gentle Mountain.

315.jpg


Then I came across what was being sold as "Roundtail", but I could clearly see that it was a female, and she kept staring at me and won me over. So I went back a few days later, saw she was still there (but less lively) and took her home. Cost a whopping $19.87, too. She's rather dull (literally, no sparkle), and quite ordinary, but she recently cropped up with a fungus issue. I've been treating it with some melafix and pimafix and wouldn't you know it, a more lively side is coming out and she's much more interested in what's going on around her. Plus, I swear some sparkle is showing up in her scales. To "help" get her to become pretty and spicey, I named her Paprika, lol. Plus, it fits with her rusty red color.

316.jpg


317.jpg

Oh, did I mention that she's huge? Bigger than Ed Gein, so I call her the big momma of the group of girls. Nobody messes with her. She's calm and composed, nothing fazes her, but I guess the sight of her bulk slowly floating your way makes you lose all thoughts of mischief. She's a tonka truck, lol

This is who I'm tentatively naming Olive. Temperament-wise, she's nothing remarkable, just kind of goes with the flow. But last night, I noticed she's been hanging out a lot with Paprika, almost as if Paprika's her bodyguard. Why? Well, I bought another girl with her, and that girl has turned out to be a male plakat, and for some reason, he focuses all his flaring and peckering at her, rather than any of the other girls. Maybe she's realized the wisest fish to hang out with, lol. In the second pic, she's the greener one with the stress stripes.

318.jpg


319.jpg


The male plakat that was mistakenly sold as a female (oh, I remember once, early in the fish-days, mentioning how I dread the day I get a male instead of a female, because I just KNEW I wouldn't have an extra tank handy if that time came). This guy was named Sudoku because he's been a puzzle from the start. Didn't have stress-stripes when I got him home, even though he should have (I took him home in the cold, his container occationally clunking with Olive's, and we all took the bus). As much as I tried, I couldn't find that ovI spot. And he flared once or twice, but it would be too quick for me to catch a beard, so I hoped he was just a female flaring (because they do do that too). But I finally have proof that he is, indeed, a male.

Such a pretty shade of blue! I'd think something tropical; Key West or Jamaica or something.

Here's Sir Elton, my first betta in at least three years. He's just so full of himself XD

Here are two of my female rescues from Walmart. I have only had them for a little over 2 weeks and their coloring is really starting to come out finally. They were both brown when I bought them. They are only about an inch long right now.

I don't post much, but I'm a serious lurker and I felt this overwhelming need to post pictures of my new Betta, Boris, or as my boyfriend calls him "the metal Betta." I was totally not in the market for a Betta right now, but as you all know, you just kinda can't resist the little guys. Anyway, the pictures!

Some new additions:
First is "Woody" (I didn't name him). My grandmother gave him to me. He was in a 1.5 gal. tank with a guppy & 2 goldfish.

Second is a female that I had in my 20 gal. community before it turned into a QT. Look at that spread!! As close as I'm going to get to a HM girlie I suppose. She's a cup betta from Petsmart.

Figured I would just add these two to the existing betta photo thread.

So I can't say Zephyr was entirely cooperative...as I took about 50 shots and only ended up with 2 worth keeping. And one of them was only for the humor factor.

And then...how on earth I managed to catch him "mid-yawn" I do not know!

Posting some pictures of my 3 new bettas.

The first is big veiltail that I named ET. He is really big compared to all other bettas in the store and looked sad when I got him.

The second is my Cloud boy. Named him Cloud because he reminds me of a cloud when I look at him. I bought him after WasabI passed and this boy reminded me a lot of Wasabi.

Third is a new baby betta that I just got today. He was shipped to the store teenie tiny couple weeks ago and today he is still there still tiny and is just starting to colour up. I keep looking at this baby for quite a while and have been thinking of him before I sleep every day. I was hoping someone would buy him but for $8 but no one bought this black skinny tiny cute little CT that looks like a big black guppy at the moment. He loves to look at me and that did it. I can see he is about to go downhill if I don't get him so I got him today. His stress stripe is very clear when I got him. I think he feels very stressful in the store. He is now in his QT tank with a cave and some hornworts and I gave him some Pepso food to help clear up his system a little and he is eating already but his stress stripes are still obvious. He is just a cute baby! Can't wait to see what colour he would be!

Another picture of Elton- he's become camera shy, though- I think he remembers the flash. Now when he sees a camera he starts darting and I hate to stress him out. I got this hiding the camera under a button-up sweater.

After admiring all the handsome boys, I have to share!

Here is my sweet work-companion Fishi-Tres. He keeps me company at the office and is my 2nd betta. The original "Fishy" was a gift from my daughter on Christmas 2 yrs ago and sadly, he died in March. My heart healed enough to get this boy in May and he is wonderful...
