I think it's funny how on my laptop the images are on their sides, yet they're correct on my iPod. Did you use an Apple device to take the pics? lol Still, I wanna steal him! xD

Yeah I'm on my iPhone like usual :p

I couldn't say no because I had an empty tank at home (actually, two, but the boy in my avatar will be going into the other one next week).

I also got some betta hammocks while I was at petco. He looks different in the pictures depending on the lighting because he's got some iridescence. There was a lot of glare in the flaring pic. He was flaring at himself in the mirror and at my girls :) he's also eating just fine though I just brought him home.

He's definitely a marble so it'll be interesting to see how he changes. But now he's still floating in his cup for acclimation but his water is already warm (I assume it warmed up a little on the ride home, too). There is a RCS in his tank so hopefully he doesn't eat her :o I have SafeStart to cycle his tank because I'm sure with just the shrimp in there, the cycle won't be strong enough for him.

I can't wait to see him free in his new 5 gallon. :)

He's in his new home, now!

The tank colors are perfect. One side has that castle and light blue plants that accentuate his darker red color and the other side has a dark green cave and dark purple plants that accentuate his light colors :)

He's flaring at everything, even me, lol. Can't tell if he can see his reflection or if he's just protecting his new territory. My RCS decided to come out right after I introduced him and went back into hiding when he tried nipping at her once, haha, but he seems more interested in flaring and swimming into the filter outflow.

He's super active! The tank really makes his iridescence stand out (it's greenish at times and light blue at others).

Normally I'm not that find of decorations and colored plants but it actually works out pretty well with him!
