My Black Orchids throw Iridescent Blues and Black Steel and I have taken several 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ribbons for them. I just pulled this guy from the spawning tank. He wasn't cooperating to give me some future 1st place ribbons.
Well, ribbons or no ribbons, he is still a lovely fish! When I was looking at Bane, my newest, a man was also browsing the fish. I hadn't originally planned on buying one, but I always take a look anyway. He was in the back and I lifted him up and fell in love. I've always been a fan a Black Orchids and I thought that he resembled one. Still trying to resist further, I showed him to the older gentleman, but he promptly said, "Ugh, that's pretty ugly." That was all the motivation I needed and I scooped him up. The man left empty handed, but not before giving me the nickname "Betta girl." Hey, I know me some Bettas and a pretty fish is a pretty fish.
