He doesn't quite have much color in these pictures yet, I think he got a little cold in the mail in spite of the double heat packs. He is doing fine and active as can be and HUNGRY but on a slow diet for now until he gets warmed all the way through good. He was really a surprise as I do not think he looks a bit like the photograph on eBay.

LOL...Oh I think he is lovely but I was expecting a Copper betta with red fins and got a Steel Blue with purple fins that is all. I have never seen a betta that I did not love.

It is a wonder what some warm water and some food will do...today he is entirely different colored. I am going to keep him on Betta Bio-gold Pellets for a while as he is not a tiny baby like the others were. They should enhance whatever color it is that he ends up being....

Here are today's pix...

(I know you all probably get tired of my brag book photos but I just cannot help myself)

He's such a pretty looking fish Rose. Welcome JT

p.s. I noticed you have a potted plant in your tank, if you haven't already you want to remove it from the pot.

JT's wonderful...beautiful. Green and Red look great together I think. Amazing how much he colored up in 1 day.

What's JT stand for?

He does look very happy and healthy.  May he live long and be prosperous!

ATM--why do we need to remove our potted plants out of their pots?

O should have said why. Their roots need to develop more and when they are confine in the pot they aren't able to grow and spread out, some times there are several plants in the pots too. I would show you how with some pics but I don't have any potted plants right now, should have made a way to before when I got one. You do it fairly easily.
1. take scissors and cut the little black sides of it so you can take it off, pull the top and bottom off now.
2. carefully remove the potting mixture and remove the plants smashed in it if they are not together
3.After you have removed most of the potting mixture you can replant the plants

I just bought some monewort in a pot and after I took it out I had 8 plants, they shouldn't be so close together like that since they are stem plants. Once you do it once it's pretty easy after that. Some plants you need to separate once removed others you don't. When you remove the potting mixture you might rip some roots but that's ok just try to rip as little as possible. You should see a difference in growth once removed.

sorry to intrude on your topic like this rose :-[

No problem, I didn't know at first and my plant ended up dieing in the pot.

Sure hope JT keeps doing well and colors up good Rose.
