My New Betta

Well I went to Petco with my mom after going to the mall and found this guy......Sorry for the crappy pics, I think there's something wrong with my camera but here he is. He also needs a name and do you guys think he's a butterfly?


They had HMPKs there but my mom said they cost too much but then she said after my graduation, shes gonna buy me one.... I saw this little guy, he was a multicolor butterfly....I wanted him.:( but I hope he's still there when I graduate.

He is so pretty. I'd name him Dye, but that's just me.

It's really the eyes that get me. They aren't like goldfish or guppies, these guys can speak to you if you are willing to watch them and listen.

Yep, butterfly... though not completely... the red on his dorsal fin isn't as neat as on the other fins. Grizzle butterfly, maybe.


Very pretty! Looks like an Aristotle to me.


In the hobby for 9 years.

IDK why but Ojay comes to mind...or maybe just Jay.
