Friends, betta keepers, aquarists! Lend me your photos!

So as many of you may know, I've recently started a fish blog (link in sig) that will contain articles for the beginner aquarist as well as highlight proper care for betta and goldfish, two of my favorite fish. I believe one of the best ways to do this is to not only give proper information but show pictures of how these fish are supposed to look in proper homes. However, I suck at aquatic photography. I've managed to snag a few good pictures, but that's not enough. So I'm asking the community here to offer up photographs of your beautiful, healthy bettas. I am more than willing to give credit in any way you want whether it is your real name (which you can PM me) or your username here. Some will be published in my upcoming betta care article while I will save others for use at a later time with such articles as detailing the workings of the labyrinth organ or showcasing betta tail types and colors. If you don't want to post all the picture you have, just point me to your albums.

Here is my "wish list" so to speak:
Bettas showing heaters in the background
Betta with a thermometer showing the proper temps
Betta in a community tank with other fish showing
Veiltail, crowntail, halfmoon, plakat, double tail flaring to show different tail types

Thanks for helping me, guys, gals, and fins!!

I could love to help you with pictures of my crowntail, however, most of those photos he is suffering from what i believe is fin rot.(not very bad, just a few uneven spikes and spikes that are looking not 100%)
and my heater has decided to have a hissy fit and not work, so i cant help you with that either. sorry!

Good luck!

here are a few photos i found that were pretty good. don't have many good pictures or flaring ones because most of my fish are too fast or camera shy. haha.

Ohh your rosetail is a pretty boy, Luimeril! I saved your photo to my computer because I don't feel right using up your bandwidth. It's funny, he kinda looks like a friend of mine named Todd.

Panda - your dragonscale is beautiful!! The one of him next to the thermometer that shows a temperature is perfect! That is also a great shot of a double tail. Shows the shorter body, longer dorsal, and funky tail perfectly!

I'm glad they worked out for you Koi :) the one with the thermometer even has a bubble nest around it :D

Just use my panda name and show us when you complete this project

Here is Chicory's tank. He has a leafy silk plant and a recent addition, a live something or another that's mostly hiding behind his cave. He also has a Marimo moss ball. And the big black bar in the background is a 25W submersible heater. (An unseen experiment involves two so called "Beta bulbs" - bulbs of water plants, that I buried in the gravel)

Chicory is a Delta or Super Delta. Coloration wise, perhaps he's a blue/mustard? He had a little chunk missing from his tail when I got him, it's growing back nicely now though.

Haha! Chrissy, you posted at the same time I did. Your red dragonscale is gorgeous!! That's basically a picture of my dream fish!

Panda - that is just a great picture of how a betta tank is supposed to look; you've got a bubble nest, plants, heater, warm temp: the whole package. I'm hoping these pictures along with the info will change the minds of some people. I'll be sure to credit you. I save all of the photos with your username attached to them.

Gienah - That is another good, clear picture. Do you remember about how old Crispin was when you took that photo? I like to be able to give ages when showing smaller fish.
