I have 4 now. I exchanged my 10 gal tank that I got from Petsmart and walked out with two bettas.
I couldn't resist the oldest female they had there. She was huge and her cup was really scummy but when I looked at her she came up to the top of her cup and started following my finger for food. I don't really know what color she would be, but she has a brown body with blue and red normal veil tail looking coloring and the most amazingly adorable face.
They had just gotten a shipment of new males in. My god they were beyond amazing. The guy I couldn't resist is a pineapple spade tail with orange caudal, anal, and ventral fins rimmed in black. His dorsal fin is also orange rimmed in black but has the first third in blue with one big orange dalmation-like spot on it. His gill cover is orange and black too.... If I had the room, and the tanks, I would have taken home two other boys. *sigh*
I draw the line with these. I am sticking with 4. Now I have to see if my friend with the camera will let me take another hundred or so pictures so I can get a handful of good ones of the new crew. ;)
Can't wait to get my two other photo albums up on here.
Betta Fish are like potato chips, it's hard to have just one!
