Krycek and Tooms

Meet my two bettas, Krycek and Tooms. I have had Krycek for about a month now, and just got Tooms today.


This is Krycek. He was labeled as a dragon scale crowntail at Petsmart, but he looks more multicolor to me. I'm hoping his fins will grow out a bit as he gets older, he is pretty small yet.


This is Tooms. He is a halfmoon double tail. Any idea on his coloring? Dalmation?


They were both just put in this divided 5 gallon today, hence the bubbles. They seem to like it so far, and I think I was successful in making my divider a bit harder to see through. They can see each other, but not really clear enough to flare at each other. Here's a couple photos of them checking each other out.




And yes, I like the X-Files. My two previous bettas were named Scully and Fox Mulder. :P

My mom had a whole bunch of pieces of slate that she used in other aquariums...I'm not really sure where she got it, but it's kind of fun to make bridges and stuff with! Tooms really likes swimming through it too!

Next up should be Langly, Frohike, and Byers.

They are really great looking. I love both of them. Can't help with the color on Tooms, don't know enough about colors.

don't make any big decisions based on that second one's colors, he looks like he's lost a lot of his pigment due to stress. i doubt he'll stay silver like that, probably will be more of a blue metallic with some red marbling.

Oh, exciting! How long does it usually take for their true colors to start showing? I'll have to update this thread when he starts to look different. :)

A few more pictures, just because I can't help myself.





I think Tooms's colors are starting to darken up, but it's kind of hard to tell. I know it took Krycek a few weeks to get to where he is now, but he is also under a different light so that might make a difference.
Just for kicks, here's a picture of Krycek the day I got him (in his old tank, before he had a heater):

He just looks so much happier now!
