Yeah, I'm glad I found him! He's turning out to be a little on the shy side but I think that adding a few more plants to his tank will help with that! I think that's why they put him as a crowntail as well, but I'm not complaining;)

Thank you! I'm about to start him with a little salt bath for his fins. I'm just going to put 1/2 of a tablespoon in the tank, hopefully that'll help him out! He seems to be a fighter so I don't doubt he'll heal quickly!

Thanks for all the compliments!

Gorgeous!! Glad you got him a good new home :)

The Wal-Mart here doesn't even label different breeds, tops of their "cups" just say Male Betta. Glad you figured out what he is though. :)

Thank you! He's glad he's got a new home:) Wow, only a Male Betta label that's sad... Oh well! I'm glad I have him anyways:)

You're right he does! Hmmm... I'm thinking that I'm going to have to do a little more research!

Usually mine only has VTs and occasionally some CTs so I was excited when I found Benjamin!

There are more pictures!!! He's extremely photogenic!

Here are some new pictures of Benjamin (Benji), yes I gave him a nickname

The dark and mysterious setting:


He really likes showing off his fins:


Front view. It looks like he has green freckles


Just keep swimming:


You can really see some of his red in this picture:


Still more to come, I just can't upload all the pictures at once. Apparently my browser can't handle that much!

I think his fins will become more blue that grey when he's settled in! Generally, when bettas are ill/unhappy they lose coloration but I'm sure he'll recover!

That would be cool. I guess only time will tell though!
