I've never really had the experience of a betta "wanting" me to take it home. Usually I pick the betta because something about them stands out; this is usually that they are fiestier than the others.

My friend Chelsea went in to get her water tested today, and there he was. A GORGEOUS red/white butterfly crowntail. I liked his patterning, but wasn't in the market for a new betta.

Well, he begged at me. He did the dance. It was, as they say, ineffable. He's with me now.

He has been named Crowley. If you've read Good Omens, you'll know why. The sly little serpent tempted me into buying him.

Upon researching it, I'm thinking he's more of a marble than a butterfly. Still gorgeous though

Congrats on the new boy Hooxeii! Beautiful. He stands out really well against the black in the tank.
