Today I went in looking for a heater and browsed the bettas. They had a really nice King HM with dragon scale and I was going to get it, but taking into consideration that I felt my tank was already too small for a betta I barely even glanced over before I saw this boy.
In the picture he looks black but I don't have a lot of light in the room. He is really a royal blue with a dark orange tint to his fins.
His name came from my friend who thought his fins resembled the Portal colors, and I liked the name Portal, but I wanted my finned friend to have some sort of name that had a Transformers Homeage.
And so, meet Portal Prime.
I let him accomodate for an hour after I let the heater run. His tank is FINALLY at a steady 78 degrees. When I let him in he was trying to turn and flare at me (He really likes to flare!) he sort of rolled out of the cup xD
Now what I think is weird already is that I actually was expecting him to be all frenzied and lethargic, or freaked out. He has been calm, and even watching me whenever I move after he took a few laps around the tank. http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=101599
<---will show you my current setup + a new neon silk plant
He even ate a few pellets :o *squeal* I love him so much. I can observe him all night!!!
Also, if someone can PM me or message me here about how his finnage is? I have plenty more pictures but I'm a bit worried about how heavy his dorsal looks....also, what is his color classified as? :o
P.S - keep an eye on the flickr page!! I'm uploading more pics :D
