So today I learned that I'm developing a "Ooo... Shiny!" complex when walking past the bettas at Petco. While looking at them today, I noticed this purple/white butterfly elephant ear betta mistakenly labled as a HM that I didn't intend to get but ended up taking home anyway because I had an empty tank, he was just so fiesty looking, and I'm pretty sure I'm in the beginning phases of addiction (as the title says, my friends are going to try sending to Betta Addicts Anonymous tomorrow). He also somehow tore off part of one his pectoral fins (random questions - can/will they fin bite them?), so his tank is staying squeaky-clean while it heals. But here he is, along with a couple pics of my other two boys (who are shamefully not yet named, suggestions appreciated):
New boy, he's really more purple in person - my photography skills are just lacking.
My first betta, a red-with-blue-edging dragonscale HMDTPK who has a small kink in his spine that doesn't seem to slow him down any and has also managed to tear his dorsal fin:
And my middle boy, who's a black orchid butterfly HM:
