My New Betta !! :D **Pic Spam!!**

He turned up at 10.30 this morning with the postman; his face when he found out there was a fish in the box = priceless :D

I acclimatised him to his tank and he has settled in lovely, still have no name for the little guy though so your welcome to suggest and help :D

He's completely different to what I expected, from the picture he was more grey but without flash he's turquoise metallic and with flash he looks more purple; I love him, he's got to be my favourite so far :) I now can't wait to go shopping for some new deco but still have no idea what colours to buy lol

I didn't, although he was curious and hinting towards that. I just would have been a bit embarrassed and upset if he was DOA lol

Pheasant's a cool name :) actually when I first saw him he had the markings and colouring of an owl but now that he's here... totally different haha

OH. I didn't think of that. xD

I was thinking of Sliver for a name. Since he's got all those slivers of metallic color running through his fins. :)
