    This is Shazam, my Elephant Ear Betta. I got him last week and put him in my 5 Gallon.

    Thank you for the compliments!

    @kb9plc - I love all of them, but the Elephant Ear and the Half Moon are my two favorites! :)

    If we could extract their aggression out of them, I'd have a tank full of Dumbo/Elephant Ears! The big fins make them look extra wiggly when they beg for food. Hahahaha! I find myself talking to mine all the time when he dash up to the front of the tank to greet me "awww, lookie you... wiggle wiggle wiggly boy". I'm such a shmuck. LOL

    LOL @ "I'm such a shmuck"! I do the same with both betta tanks. It's crazy! And yes, I do love the extra tail-age. It seems to remind me of a superhero with a cape. ;)

    Shazam is a beautiful boy I love his colouring.
    I too love the dumbos I never see them over here but I do have a double tail half moon that is the most difficult fish in the world to take pictures of his colour is currently changing too I think I need to get some better lights for his tank lol.

    Congratulations on your new boy :)
