New Betta for NPT

Hey all, just wanted to show off my new golden Plakat Betta. My 5 Gal NPT has been cycled for weeks, and I decided to stop by my LFS to browse. I've been looking for a light toned Plakat, and I immediately noticed this beauty:



The pic is a bit blurry. He's been zipping around exploring his new home and seeing whats edible and not , making it difficult to get a clear shot. He flared at me a couple of times earlier, but I didn't have the camera with me

I also picked up 4 cherry shrimp to help tend to the plants. He immediately rushed for them trying to get a meal when they were in the tank together. But, like my halfmoon, he quickly learned they are far too quick, and ignores them now after a few attempts.

And so, the naming process begins... hmmmm...

Thanks for the naming ideas :D

I've discovered he is quite the hunter. I can't spot any cherry shrimp in the tank now, and he's sporting a full belly. Someone isn't going to get fed for a day or so... This guy is far more active than my halfmoon so far. Shrimp compatibility aside, I'm happy I found him.
