Please welcome Skittles!

So, here is Skittles, the male veiltail! I got my first two bettas about two weeks ago. Well, I adore them, and so did my mom! She decided to get one for herself!
So, we went and picked out Skittles from our local petstore. He is so cute and friendly. His tank sits on our dining room table, and when I do my homework there, he sits as close as he can get to me and just watches me work. Adorable!





(Pictures are blurry, I apologize, he wouldn't sit still!)

Life with Lupus is still a life worth living.

Aww, skittles is a cute name and he's cute too. :D
I love VTs, they are one of my favorite types of bettas.

Sorry, if you caught me saying a CT, I messed up, lol
I can definitely tell your betta is a VT.

Haha, thanks Bluehaven! My sister and my mom named him, and I couldn't object because Skittles is my favorite candy! LOL, I didn't see the mistake. I had to read the post like three times because I didn't get what you meant at first. XD Now, I do!

I didn't like veiltails at first but they have really grown on me.

Thanks Sweeda88! I appreciate that :D

They are such a challenge to photograph. He's cute! I found my Ninja isn't as shy now that he's had some time to get used to the tank. Maybe you'll get sharper pics once he settles in! ;)

Thanks dramaqueen! He is adorable, and has stolen our hearts!
Thanks Canuck Fins! I think he is definitely settled in a bit now. He has been building little bubble nests around his tank. I will try getting some better pictures soon.

I love Skittles. My bettas have gotten into the habit of water changes, and well, they do the same thing. Watching me until I get the cups out, lolololol!

I hope that plant isn't the same one that shredded Comet's fins. If it is, I suggest a silk/less spiky plastic plants. You can even go to Micheal's (craft store) and get some really natural looking plants for cheap. Just make sure there's not exposed wire or anything. That can be really harmful to the fish. Just wanted to give you that info in case that his fins start to look shredded/shorter than usual.

LOL! That is too cute! I love their little personalities XD One of my girls STILL dreads water change days. My other fish, Ocean, swims INTO the net now, waiting to get her water change done XD

Thanks for the tip on the plant. I really appreciate it. I will keep a very close eye on his fins now. At the slightest signs of any rips I will remove the plants. I never thought about getting plants at Michael! I love that store, I will definetly look for some next time I'm there! Thanks!
