He was more colored up today and went after his white worms like he's never been fed LOL

I'm happy to see him swimming around with the guppies, he doesn't seem to mind them at all.

My other betta forum seems to think he might not be a smaragdina but something from the coccina complex. I'm still not entirely sure. Hopefully he'll color up more and be more distinguishable.

He certainly is beautiful! good luck with him. I know next to nothing about wilds but I think you've piqued my interest.

Spike is now living in a private 2 gallon planted tank because he decided to start nipping my guppies fins and I think he even killed one of them. I'm trying to decide whether or not I'm going to keep him. If I do decide to rehome him it won't be until Spring anyways.
