What is my new boy?

Here is "Buster beau"...is he a VT? Someone said he may be a marble too, is that a color pattern? He's still adjusting to being with us, so I know he unclamp a bit, and probably color up some more. thanks for any info on his identity!

Are his gills too red? I'm such a worrying mom.

Yup. That's a marble veiltail, and a lovely one at that.

And his gills look fine to me. I think its just the contrast against the pale body that makes them stand out.

sigh of relief...thank you so much. I think he's lovely. I just worry so much about them. I have three now, and I only started a month ago lol! He is my most recent, and he is still quite jittery. I can't wait until he relaxes so I can too...I never thought I would be so obsessed with fish! This is all so new to me...

I think you're doing great as a betta mom! I just started not too long ago myself and Im in the same boat as you are. I have just one betta, Kudo, right now but oh my I worry about him too. Your betta is SO handsome and he's lucky to have a mom like you! I never knew I could be so obsessed with fish either, but it is so addicting isn't it? I'm already trying to figure out how to break it to my husband I want another one LOL!


If you always do what you've always done, then you'll always get what you've always got.

Thanks for the encouragement CharStarr...I got "Buddy Blue" at the end of June..and added "Bella Bay" just about a week ago..and "Buster Beau" a day or two later...my hubby just sighs, and tries to keep me out of the fish section of the stores lol. I think three will have to do for now...hubby is looking for work, and so am I. Besides, I want to get into a rhythm with water changes etc. so I can care for them all the way they deserve. Congrats on joining the "betta revolution" lol!

I know! I started on the last day of March, and now I have 2. I'm dying for a third one, in addition to filling my currently empty 20 gal. tank

ETA: Your boy is ~gorgeous~!

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.
