Red face My first Betta 'Sushi' =)

Hello guys!

Today, I fell in love with a cute little fellow. I was still very new to Betta. (Still am, been doing researches for the past hours to learn more.) His name is Sushi and he's a very curious little guy. I was unaware that these fishes got so much personality and I'm really proud to be the owner of this beauty.

Hide and seek! He got shy when I took the cam out

Swooshing by, here come Rocket Sushi!

I will try to get better and clearer pics later... for now, I'm trying to learn more and busy staring at my little one...

Thanks for stopping by,

p.s. hope the pics are not too big and hope I posted at the right place!

Just so you know, you picked the Betta equivalent of calling your dog "Spot," "Rex," "Max," or "Killer." But, I won't fault you for it. It is a downright clever name for a fish, and especially a betta.

I do like your plant you've got in there with him. Is it a live plant?

Bettas are alot of fun, and you will only find yourself sick with some sort of disease that makes you want to go out and buy more fish, bigger tanks, and more accessories. It is tremendously fun hobby, and I'm sure you'll continue to enjoy the company of your Sushi's curiousity as he explores his world, and watches yours.

Dramaqueen: Thank you very much!

ninjafish: thanks a lot

tinthalas tigris: Thanks. Yep he got a total of 3 live plants = 2 floating ones and a base one.

Oooooh yes I've already caught it!!!
This week I will check for a bigger tank (since at the time I bought mine I thought the 'betta kit' was plenty enought space) but after reading all the requirements my views changed.
Oh and I want to buy a bamboo too...

Thanks guys for making my day!

He's beautiful! Watch out with bamboo, you can't submerge the leaves in water.
