So I got my fish, sooner than expected *-*;;;; He's a male crowntail, still a baby, and I had him special ordered since my local aquarium store is private owned- they don't hold bettas in their store- save two two pet fish- because they won't let them go unless you're setting them up in a proper home.
This is his tank, 6 gallons. My mum picked up fake plants for him- we're not sure if they will stay or not, likely the big one will be switched with a real plant. And this was before I put in one of his hidey-places as well.
This is Zoomzoom [my 2 year old sister named the poor thing]
