He just wasnt prepared for this shot :P

he'll always be my handsome. that annoying peck on my fingers when I'm trying to move something in the tank, the way that hideous tail is paraded before me, the curious head that peaks out when I knock... that bottomless pit of a stomach...

because all the breeders hold back purples, since they're not as common

I got a lavender at Dave's Soda and Pet City. He was in a tank with some fin nippers but his fins are growing back in. I'll post pics when the get to full splendor. He was my sisters but he lives in my room, VT aren't my preference for petstore ones.

I just bought a YELLOW VT female on Aquabid!!!!
She was $15. I don't plan on breeding her, but I HAD to have another bright color w/ different tail-type in the sorority! I have almost all HMs since they're the ones in fashion TODAY. (Who cares about tail-type when they are a pet?) I've never seen a bright yellow VT of either sex.

Yellow is my color. I just successfully spawned my 2 yellow HMs!!! Yaaaaay!!!!

4 bettas: Butch, 3-year-old violet male PK EE & 3 girls in a 30 gal sorority. I do not name the girls anymore! 1/2 of them die within a month.
30 gal: 9 Oto cats, 4 Ocellifer cats. Inverts: Cherry shrimp & 2 assasin snails.
10 gal.: Butch, his 5 oto cats, 3 assasin snails, and a few snails the assassins haven't caught.

Wow, what beautiful Bettas! I have a veiltail also and while I am sure he is not "show quality" he is certainly beautiful to me.

Out of curiosity, why is it that veiltails are not shown? (Can you tell that I am a complete Betta neophyte?)
