This was my first betta...I really miss him. I got him from a LFS, it was either him or a butterfly HM. I was so happy that I picked him though, he ended up looking like a totally different betta! Unfortunately I wasn't as knowledgeable back then...he got SBD and it pretty bad, despite the pea treatment. A few other issues appeared because of that. Hopefully I won't mess up again with my new boys. :/
First week or so:
Several weeks/one month:
Ta-da! When I first saw his tail like that I freaked out because I thought it was fin rot...turns out he was a little tail biter.
I received this boy from a high school teacher. She kept him and another in those small small bowls...the other one didn't make it. At the end of the school year she asked my friend to take him in. She did but I ended up with him. :3 He came with me to my college dorm during freshman year but didn't stick around for long...I should have kept him at home. :/
My current bettas:
He is my first of my three new bettas. Got him from PetCo, he's a delta..a tail-biting one. I: My boyfriend and I picked him because he had a really bad case of eye cloud, he couldn't see at all!
This is my third guy, a dragonscale plakat. He was very shy the first week, he'd hide from noises/movement, and wouldn't approach my finger. Now he's always at the front, wanting attention and doesn't even go in his decoration. o_o He recently got into a tussle with my HM though, the divider tilted. I found them hiding together in a cave...my HM was untouched but he had a ripped tail, and a few damaged scales. :/
Hopefully I'll have close ups of my HM (second betta). He zips around a lot, and my current photos all have a reflection of the camera lens. .__.
