Greetings and welcome!

I tried to put my signature but the ink wouldn't go through my screen.

Thank you very much! =)

He's a crowntail betta. He's dark blue with a very dark head (almost black), red underfins and dark blue tail. In the shade, his body looks a shiny purple.

My Lunos is also blue with a black almost diamond shape mark on his head and white tips but not sure if it'll change, could just be fin growth and will turn blue..I kind of like the white tips ..I wanted purple (favorite color) but they didn't have any%

I actually wanted a very blue / green (aqua) colored betta, Aqua = fav color. But this little guy was so feisty and had so much personality in his cup I decided he was the one for me XD

I haven't had very much time to observe him since I just got him less than 8 hrs ago and now it's night time (fishy sleep time I was told). I'll stare at him some more tomorrow when he's awake and try to take pics of him.

What I DID notice is that one of his tiny front fins (excuse the lack of proper fish terminology) is cut in the middle (maybe fin rot had started to develop). I hope that it'll heal with clean conditioned water and a good diet since, at least this week, I won't be able to buy him some medicine I saw at the pet shop.

And nice to meet you Lunos! (Guessing this is him in your picture).

That is him and yes the best thing to do is keep his water nice and clean. That's all I did when i got mine and if you look at my album you'll see the difference it made in very little time.
