Hi, I am new to the forum but I have been lurking. I have decided to get into bettas as I am running out of room for tanks! I can always find room for a 10 gallon tank! Mostly I keep puffer fish, but I also have Oscars, a green Texas and various other small fish.
Anyways, I have looked for a good betta for a few months and I finally found one that wasn't half dead and I thought he was pretty.
I think he is a half moon, but I am not sure. Also I am unsure about what color he would be called. Perhaps a cellophane?
Anyways here is my new betta. He is in a 10 gallon with no tank mates. The tank is still in progress :)
FTS, see if you can find the betta in this pic! (Check the plants)
I don't know if I can get him to flare, but I think if he does he would have more than a 180° spread. His fins are so heavy, I had to use decor, a baffle and get a new filter with adjustable flow so that he could swim around. Hopefully he will muscle up in a few weeks.
Welcome to the forum. Great looking Betta. I started out with a cellophane and now he is marbling to black/dark blue with blue fins. What part of NC are you in? I live outside of Charlotte. Hello from us
hahaa yah your betta is quite nice though mine is a common boring veiltail :c i may have to baffle my new penguin 100 filter in my cycling 10gal because even without any fishies in it, i can tell the current is strong
Cool, you are not too far from here, only a few hours. I didn't know they could change either until it happened and I asked about it here. That's when I learned about marbling. I found mine at my local petsmart, they seem to have a good selection at times and I have to stop myself from bringing another one home. I enjoy sleeping in my bed and not the couch
Here is a picture of my betta on January 1, just a few days after we got him. He has grown and changed so much in just over a month.
