Found a female straight off the truck at PetsMart, she is surprisingly pretty and healthy (I'm so used to seeing bettas at walmart with cloudy 1 inch water) since I had my 3 year old with me though we didn't make it out without buying a pretty male.
The female looks pretty good, but I'm not familiar with CT show standards, I'm actually still in the process of building my barracks before I start buying stock and breeding.
Anyways, what do you think of these two, I know the topline on the male really drops, but he is a pretty guy.
and for the brief time they were together without the card between them, he was really flaring up for her but I never could have my camera ready. Since I was doing their daily water change I stuck him up against a mirror to get a flared picture (dang those rounded corners) for your viewing pleasure.
