Sorry for some of the gigantic photos lol.

Here's more xD

Also Lebron asked about his spread, so I only got one decent photo (the other one's blurry). He moves around way too much. Even there, I don't think he's fully extended.





Cute eyes





And some tail pics which confirmed my suspicions. He's losing his transparency :(





He's also getting some white in his tail :o

So far I noticed:
His scales have become darker colours (barely any white)
He's getting more blue
He's losing tail transparency
His fins are healing (yay!)

It's great he's healing! And his spread is almost a 180*. He's to DIE for! :p

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

xD To think I almost passed him up...

He was mislabeled as a delta (which cost more) and when I told the worker he was a VT, the worker admitted to it, and made up a whole bunch of excuses, but it narrowed down to this "he's prettier so he costs more"
I was kinda pissed off about that, like honestly he's obviously not a delta, and I should pay VT price for him, that I almost bought another one.

But I calmed down and bought him for delta price.

People need to stop mislabeling!%@#% It drives me insane! To see males labelled as females and females labelled as males.

Oh wow, those new pictures are amazing! His spread is literally to die for as Lebron mentioned lol! I think he'll look really cute with the black filling in the cellophane spots though, I love how intense his blue is against the black/white

You almost left him? NEVER. xD
To be honest, he's well worth the money. I'd rather buy him than a butterfly HM on Aquabid. (;

Thanks lil! Just woke up today and was like "feels like a picture today" and snapped away. Even after one of my cameras died, I just got another xD
Yeah, I'm hoping all his lighter-colour scales will darken, it'll look much prettier! I really hope he keeps the white throughout the marbling. It's half of the reason I named him Marine xD

I did Lebron :( Not proud of it. I set out to get a HM or DT, and the overprice mislabel thing just made it worse. Good thing that store doesn't sell any HM's or DT's I have way too much fun taking pics of him. And tbh the overprice thing wasn't tooooo bad. it was $4 lol LMAO. I guess it was more of a pride thing idk. I'm like that
:o butterfly's are gorgeous.

$4? That's SO much money! /(0-0)\ I can't believe you didn't go in bankruptcy. Is Canadian money different from the US? I think it's like.. $3 there for $1 here?

xDDDD

$1 CAD = $0.96 US

I know, I could've bought so many things with those $4.

Why can't they be the same? It's only like.. $0.04. lol It's not THAT much of a difference. Maybe buy some plants.

Actually they sell female bettas for $4 here, so I could've bought a female betta!@$

Lol 4 cents makes all the difference when you have a crapload of money.
