    I just got my Betta! It's a male... I'm not sure what kind though. I'll take some pictures in a minute. :p I feed him 2 blood worms and he just jumped straight for them... he's exploring his big tank... Not really any decoration/plants in there for him yet but I'll be getting some very soon hopefully... want to get some plants for him! :D I'm super happy.

    He's redish/blueish with a long wavy tail. :p I'll get some pictures soon

    Congrats I cant wait to see him. Does he have a name yet?
  3. Ay1aValued MemberMember

    No name yet, trying to work my dads camera so I can figure out how to make the pictures not so blurry when I take them.
    He's swimming around actively right now just looking at his bridge and is hanging by the filter. :p

    Oh good! I'm so glad you got him! Can't wait to see pics! Betta shopping is always fun :D

    Sorry for the wait, trying to get him to come out from hiding from under a little bridge... sorry for the awful quality the camera is bad. :p
    But once I feed him tonight I'll get some more pictures of him out.

    He's a veiltail betta. His coloring looks like a mustard gas to me. They're my favorite kind!

    What a little beauty! Is he navy blue with orange fins? I know sometimes bettas look a lot different in pics than in real life, lol.

    Congrats to you! ;D

    Hey everyone again, sorry of I'm hijacking my thread but just wanted to ask something. My Betta is hiding and just sitting under his bridge and sort of dug a hole under it and is sitting in there. Is this normal behavior for a fish that was just introduced to a new home?

    Just kind of worried, my water parameters are pretty much the same with the exception of nitrates which are down a lot.

    And to Harupa2002, I would call him more of a dark blueish color that fades to red on his tail, it looks very pretty.

    I wouldn't be too worried. Betta will often be shy for a day or two. He will come out soon and get to know ya.
  20. Ay1aValued MemberMember

    Okay thanks. :p I'm just a little concerned about his shyness but hopefully he'll be more active around me soon. XD
