Ohhh, where to begin! I won't bore you with ALL of my bettas, but I'll tell you about a few special ones!
Talk about ATTITUDE! This little girl is packed full of it, and she doesn't let a single sorority member forget she is alpha... not even the giant girl! She's the little black one with the red fins. First to eat, no matter what, and she's not afraid to give a nip or two to remind the others who is boss! Heck, she's not even afraid to nip me when I put my big old hands in the tank!
Fiery is the word that comes to mind. I bought Hiei as a little guy all clamped up in his cup at Petsmart. I brought him home, introduced him to his new heated and cycled 5.5 gallon, and watched him blossom into the gorgeous fish you see today! He is 100% alpha male... even blew out his dorsal flaring at his neighbor last week!
This picture about says it all for Kai. He is angry at the world. Angry at me, angry at you, angry at his plants, and ANGRY at his ornaments! I often see the little guy puffed up and flaring for no reason at all, just angry at his whole environment. And then he builds me a killer bubblenest just to remind me that the tank is HIS, even if he's livid at the whole thing hahahaha.
Kitkat is such a sneaky little thing, always causing mayhem in the sorority by riling Tagalong up, then darting away to hide and let the other girls deal with the alpha's wrath. She can be seen here, taunting Tagalong when Tagalong was in the breeder box being introduced to the sorority after her QT. She's absolutely precious, though, and the brightest bright red I've ever seen!
