At the Betta show that we got him, his breeder told us that Teddy Bear was a "feathered" Betta. Is there such a thing or is he a Rosetail?
I second this. I wouldn't know what to call him, but he's a really pretty color...though, I suppose handsome color would be a more appropriate term.i, of course, don't know what he is, but man is he amazing!!
He's a really pretty fish *drools with envy*, but I had 2 thoughts:
1. It looks like you dipped a blue fish head-first into black paint. A cool effect, but odd to me (though, to be fair, I haven't seen many color patterns).
2. I saw the hamster tubes and houses you're using for decor and thought about doing the same thing...but my tank isn't big enough for the stuff I saw.
Does he have a totally high-falutin' attitude or just a pretentious accent? Oh wait. Fish can't talk. Or can they?
Wow--he is really a gorgeous betta! And I love the hamster tubes! Do you have a pic of the whole tank, to see how it's laid out w/ the tubes and cave?
Yep those eyes will get you every time...he is gorgeous!
Love that betta. He is indeed a special little Teddy Bear!
Beautiful tank for a handsome Betta boy!
That 6.6 looks so large.
Yes actually that tank and its shallow depth is very good for him with those fins and the extra work he has to do just swimming with them. He is going to wear out and be tired faster than the girls. That was so thoughtful of you.
Male Bettas like Rosetails, Halfmoons, Deltas and NOW the Feathered fins expend a lot more energy going through moving water than the Crowntails, Combtails, and Females with the smaller amount of finnage. They are like they are carrying sail around with them.
Thanks. He's been extra loving of attention since KairI (they liked to flirt at each other) died and is a total lover. Bettas do like java moss and I think the seaweed appeals to them in the same way.
