The Unnamed New Boy....Those Eyes!!*Picture Heavy*

Heeeeey there. xD So I've been rather inactive here on the forum for the past couple of weeks due to health reasons....but I'm feeling much better for the moment, so I'm back....and with another new addition! xD Haha.....yeah....I've given in to my addiction. xP

So after a rather hectic, stressful week my dad was sweet enough to take me to Petsmart to buy me a few things yesterday.....including a new betta. He even got a little more involved then usual helping me pick one out, pointing out a few that he thought looked neat....and it was a VERY hard decision. There were several very lovely boys and a few just itty bitty TINY adorable girls.....like, practically baby betta sized. I'd never seen girls sold that small. It was definitely a hard choice....there were a good five or so that I wanted to bring home right there and then. xD

But in the end....there was one boy that stood out to me especially.....












































I have NEVER seen eyes quite like that on a betta before....that was really what caught my attention, I have to admit. I mean, I've had bettas give me 'the eye' many many times.....but that just takes on a whole new meaning with this guy. xD I just had to get him.
His color is quite interesting is well. Obviously he'll marble up eventually, so I look forward to seeing exactly how he changes...but hes quite unusually lovely. xD
I was a little worried about his sight, but he appears to see just fine. Hes a very curious little guy, very inquisitive. Hes particularly fond of pausing his exploration to watch my TV, as he has a nice view of it from his tank, and to watch me crochet. Its so adorable. <3

I haven't decided on a name yet....though I have several options in mind. Since I'd been on a Supernatural kick for the past month or so, I'd been mainly considering naming him something Supernatural related, though Watson has also been added to he list......xD Its a toss up right now.....

But, anyway....enough of my rambling. xD Enjoy the pictures!

I almost stopped breathing when I saw the pics. Wow... I promised myself I wouldn't get another betta but if I ever came across a little guy that looked like that at my LFS, I would buy him anyway... GAH! The colors are stunning and his eyes are amazing! I. ENVY. YOU. lol.

whoa, really pretty! He looks like he's wearing false eyelashes! Turquoise and pink is what it looks like in the photos. I love how his top fin folds over

I'm glad you feel better!

Thank you so much everyone!! :3
His eyes really are quite something....I really don't think I've ever had or seen a betta with eyes like that before. xD It was definitely the eyes that sealed the deal for me. Though I do also love his little pectorals with those cute little spots of color. <3
He is such a neat color though. Hes sort of a white/peachy color with some green/teal iridescence and some darker teal marble spots along with that one red Koi-like spot on his head. The camera plays up his iridescence a little though...xD

O.O he is such a gorgeous betta! Just throwing a name out there for you, I think Pearl would fit him. He reminds me of mother of pearl. Kind of girly I know...

Thank you!! :)
Actually hes been named. A friend of mine officially deemed him, because I couldn't decide on a name, Tom Lucifer Rory Watson Pendragon von Jefferson.
.....This is why I don't always ask my friends to name my fish xD
