Yeah...as usual for me, first try didn't work. Picture was a little too large. Here's my second try featuring my beautiful boy Casper (I hope).

Are you trying to upload it through Profile Picture? You need to go to your User CP and then choose Edit Avatar. Then, it should show up. :)

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Yep. He's a Doubletail Plakat. I did that too before and I was really frustrated. ^^"

Thanks. Actually, he's not just named Casper. He quickly has earned his full name “Casper the idiot.” Not to be mean but my other 3 figured out in 1-2 days that seeing me probably meant food. I've had Casper for almost 2 months now and he still spends his time ramming his head on the side of the tank trying to get at me and kill me. He also refuses to eat food from the surface like most betta. So I have to keep poking at his food with the end of a paintbrush until he notices it or it starts to sink. If he’s lucky he catches it on the way down. And in very, very unbetta like behavior he will even push at the gravel on the bottom to pick up a piece he missed catching. The (many) other pieces he never even sees I remove with a turkey baster so the water won’t foul. He is a very weird little guy...beautiful but a real pain in the butt at feeding time. 15 seconds and the other 3 are fed. Casper...the sky’s the limit as to how long it takes.

Fortunately things have gotten a bit better recently. I discovered that if I take the entire lid off the tank to feed rather than just through the feeding hole he's so hypnotized by that big "sky" up there that he also notices the food I drop in. Just hope he doesn't decide to become a jumper.
