I'm going to thaw out some blood worms in the morning with some health food and lots of room I am betting that his colours will change and he will become more vibrant. Pics to follow I just have to find which box the cables are in...

So sad to me that we so rarely get to purchase a healthy, well-cared-for betta... when any of us ever get a betta, nine times out of ten it's a rescue from a bad situation.

Congrats on your find, his colouring sounds unusual and very beautiful; I can't wait to see photos.

No memory card reader on my computer I designed it and was unwilling to give up a usb port just for a memory card reader. Plus its off my phone because my camera decided it wasn't going to work anymore (must be nice) so the memory card on my camera is it has those microscopic ones its the smallest memory card on the market, Memory Stick Micro. Basically a dime is way bigger so I need that cable... for a cellphone its good its 3.2 mega pixels with a flash. Ill find it in the morning

P.S He is swimming around in the current and he flares up at it then he hides behind the plants its funny I think he is a little confused with all that space.

The Pictures are here

There are 2 pics of the new guy Mr.betta the second he is really shy still and is being a pain about getting pics ill try to get some latter once he calms down and is more adjusted. The next pic is of Mr.Betta the first he is not as photo shy he looked like he was ready for a pic.

Have you picked a name yet?


Nope no names I can't bring my self to do it I know I have a problem with the 7 tanks now and if I start naming them then I think that will take me to a new level that I am just not ready for.

Oh C"MON!!!!!!

you can't call them Mr. Betta and New Mr. Betta

we'll help you out and we won't tell your friends you name your fish

I think the blue one should be
MOON DANCER

and the Pink one
SHELL SEEKER

any other ideas Betta Lovers? Help this guy out!!

We've answered in your thread about your betta, it'll be easier for everyone to help you if we leave it there. I hope he's feeling better soon.
