Pickles is a doubletail. Not sure why his tail is "feathered" like that. Guess its always been that way. The reason I bought him originally were his eyes. He was from Petco and when I got him he had the coolest white eyes. Not diseased but I think genetically? He had black pupils but the rest of the eyes were white. I remember he would not eat for the longest time when I got him. Live bbs were the only thing I could get him to eat. He was also very thin and had a crooked body. Unfortunately with age he lost the white eyes but fortunately he is now a good eater and his posture is normal. He has always had a mixture of blue and chocolate coloring. He is much more blue than he was back then.
My betta's so far have come from 4 different sources: Petco, Petsmart, and 2 lfs. Washington is from a lfs that deals with almost exclusively betta's. I think he gets his fish from Thailand. Been reluctant to use Aqua Bid which is probably a good thing LOL.
