New here!

A couple days ago I visited my local Pet Supermarket and started to look at the fish and I kept going back to this one fish. He just so happened to be a betta and imo, his colors were quite striking.

So I told my mom that I wanted to buy him and I could keep him in the little tank as I would rather not put him in the 55 gallon with the Ocsar fish. (Properly named Jaws for a reason)

So I brought him home!

That's a picture of him. ^^ I would also be interested in knowing his fin type, color, pattern, etc from those betta fish experts!

Beautiful! Good colors. It looks to me like he's a double tail but it could just be how his tail is folding. What size tank did you put him in?

Thanks! ;v; He's currently being kept in a little 5 gallon tank. He seems pretty content so far, even started making a bubble nest in the corner.

Expect more pictures of him in the future!
