And they're feisty, too. Dijon flares at his neighbor all the time. lol Little Dude doesn't flare much but he'll swim up and down the side of the tank when he sees Echo.

Yes, they do. Dijon is beautiful with his fins all spread out.

He is a really gorgeous color. You don't see colors like his very often.

I looked at him very closely and his ventrals are very small, much smaller than my other 2 plakats. I'm wondering if I might have a plakat female? Maybe his ventrals are underdeveloped for some reason.

Okay, that IS the one thing I don't like about plakats. When they're small, you can't tell the males and females apart. It's possible you could have a female. I guess you'll have to wait and see if he/she starts to flare a lot after settling in.

Erin, you know you want just one more betta.

One thing that was nice is that he was fresh off the truck so he hadn't been sitting there for a long time. My mom was NOT a happy camper when I brought him home. lol

I can imagine she wasn't. But at least you didn't bring home a hamster. My parents told me once if they ever saw me come out with a little box that had breathing holes in it, they'd just drive off. XD Ever since, I've been tempted to just take an empty box outside and see what they really do.

lol! I'm definitely not allowed to have any kind of rodent, especially rats. I wouldn't mind having a rat someday but I don't think my brother or sister in law would appreciate it, either. lol
