I just got my Betta! It's a male... I'm not sure what kind though. I'll take some pictures in a minute. 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! I'm super happy.

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

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.

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.
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.

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