    I tried to tell her the betta bug is very contagious, spreads VERY easily and has no known cure..but did she listen..NOOOOOOO. Well, she has been officially diagnosed! She is no sure if she wants to breed...yet...but she saw this little guy yesterday and couldn't say no! So here is my Mom's new baby boy!

    P.S. He doesn't have a name yet...I was thinking of Phantom but she wants to see if anyone here has any suggestions!

    I am going to set him up in the photo tank in a few days..he has double rays that are arrow straight and very long. I was very impressed with her choice!

    I tend to think of a phantom as dark , like phantom of the opera. I like Ghost better. (Or even Ray because of the double rays/bright ray of sunshine...

    Well, he decided to flare up before I got him to the photo tank so here he is showing off his big, bad self!

    EDIT: Question..is he a marble or a platinm? Also does he look like he might carry the dragon gene?

    What a handsome boy!
    He is so serious looking. How cute! I love Bettas' expressions.
    Dogs give that sad "please take me home" look, but Bettas give the "Take me home or I'll kill you" look. Too cute!

    Wow! What a CUTE guy!!! I love his coloration. He reminds me of ice. Maybe he could be called Glacier or something along those lines?

    Thanks everybody! Mom wants to know if anyone knows the name of the abominable snowman from the old cartoon with the elf that wants to be a dentist.

    Hello Critter Fritter. I think the cartoon is Rudolph. I don't recall the abominable snowman having a name. (I'd have to watch it again to be certain though).
    The Betta is "beautiful". Congrats on the new addition and thanks for sharing the photos.
