Multi color DBT

I am having to rehome hope, my multi DBT I cannot give him the care he deserves I am looking for someone in the austin, TX area to take him, I don't want to risk the death of hope, Due to shipping, pm me if interested. He will change colors depending on the light. And I don't want money he will be free At no charge


Right now I have had him about a month the 1 gallon tank he is in was supposed to be temporary but my dad bought incompatible fish for the ten gallon hope was going to go in so I am trying to find him a bigger
home for him

16 gallon - 11 neon tetras, 6 Pygmy cories, 6 kuhli loaches and 1 male Betta
15 gallon - 1 male Betta, 3 platies, and 5 guppies
6 gallon - 1 male Betta

All planted tanks

In My Opinion a Betta deserves nothing smaller than a 5 gallon tank

It looks like the second picture is backlit, so it distorted his colors quite a bit. But you can see the same little chunk is missing out of his tail in both pics. He is absolutely amazing, I would take him in a heartbeat if I didn't live in Indiana =( I hope he finds a good home!!!!

My Current bettas:
Sullivan- Orange rose tail halfmoon male
Daisy- Mustard Gas (black and yellow) veil tail female
Milton- Teal butterfly halfmoon male (mom's betta)

That is amazing :0 I've seen fish change color but never that drastically.

I'm sorry that you have to give him up but I admire you for trying to find him a good home.

Good luck.

Thanks I hope he finds a good home, and I love him soooo much but he deserves better than a 1 gallon bowl to live in his whole life

Is it because you can't get a bigger tank with a heater to keep him in?

Maybe you can talk your dad into getting a 2.5 gallon critter keeper? I have 3 or 4 of them that I use for hospital tanks if my 10 gallon is unavailable.

You can keep a 25w heater in there and a small filter. And they're really inexpensive.

I probably can't I have no more room for any more tanks but I do have a sponge filter coming in the mail do you think that it would work if my dad says yes and would a 7.5 watt heater be okay
