So I finally got some good pics and had the time to resize them so I could post them. I got him from Petco and it was his pretty blue eyes that I fell in love with. I think his colors are looking brighter already and Ive only had him for 2 days! He still needs a name, any suggestions?

He is still clamping his ventral fins most of the time... so its hard to see but they have bright very light blue tips.

He's very handsome! What type of betta is that? The bubbles make for a really cool photo. Congratulations!

Thanks! He was sold as a halfmoon, but I really haven't seen his tail spread to anywhere near 180 degrees yet, but it seems like it might be able to...not sure.

He's a delta tail for sure, probably super delta. I don't know if he's an HM or not, he could be from and HM spawn (a lot of super delta's are) pretty boy either way

Thank you! I got him from Petco, but even though he is beautiful, I don't know if I'll ever get another from there...his cup water had an ammonia reading of 8. I couldnt believe he could survive in that. I really hope there was some sort of ammo lock or something in there

And a question...how old do you think he is? He is very small, I'm just curious if he will get bigger or if that is just his size.

Ohhh there's the little ammonia kid. And just to say wow, He is a good looking betta for a cup baby. Very nice Betta! I have to agree with Red. I'm thinking super delta...

Well, some bettas are small and stay small. My boy Eos was bought from a LFS who gets their bettas from a local breeder and he was SO tiny when I bought him. Today, he is still just half the size of Braniff, also a LFS find. He may always stay that way, especially since pet store bettas tend to be older than those on sites like aquabid, he could be "full grown" already!

Thanks again! I did notice his tailfin flaring larger this morning and last night, almost to halfmoon but I'm still not quite sure.

I'm fine if he stays small, that's just means he will be more comfy in his tank. I really like this little guy, he is so tenacious, not scared of me at all. He sees me coming and swims up to the front of his little bowl to beg for food already--it's so cute! Not to brag, but I could tell he was special when I first saw him in that store. ;D I kept going back to see him. So it worked out and I was happy when I was outbid on Aquabid. I went back and got him that day!

Poor guy still needs a name though...Flame is a cool name, Charlemagne, but I'm just not sure...lol it always takes me forever to name my pets! I can't imagine how bad it will be when I have a kid!
