Also, and this is kind of hard to tell in that first picture, it seems like he has double ventrals. Is this a thing? Is this a normal thing? Here are pictures of both sides. It seems instead of one ventral on each side, there are two.

that's just a ray split...lots of bettas have "fingers" in their ventrals. if i'm not mistaken it's highly undesirable for breeders/showers, but it's nothing to worry of, and gives them a good bit of visual personality :)

I've never much cared for what makes a good show fish. i keep them for pets and love them all the same. i think he's gorgeous just the way he is. :)

Echo is a beautiful fish! Did you find him at a local fish store, or through a breeder?

You are kidding me! I guess I am going to have to start stalking the pet stores... I live at least half an hour from a big chain store, so I won't be stalking it too hard... He is a great find! Such a pretty boy.

All of the fish I've owned have either been from Petsmart except for my old Gandalf who was from a LFS. I see the reason for breeders, but just as I wouldn't buy a pure-bred cat or dog from a breeder over rescuing one from a shelter, I won't do that with my fish either.
