Well I tried to take some pics with the flashlight, but since he moves so fast I have to use the flash on my camera otherwise all you see is a blur, but if I use the flash the picture turns out looking normal. So I'll just say he's a boy, and if he's not, he's not lol.

I've always kinda wondered about him though mainly since there's so much wrong with him externally that I wonder what all could be wrong with him internally. My thing with him has always been to give him the happiest, healthiest life I can even if that means it could be a shorter one. But fortunately as of right now, he acts like a normal healthy betta :)

It's most likely just a bent spine that makes his deformity and with the split anal fin. So there might be some squishing of organs inside but it should be alright. Later in life when things move around as he grows he may end up with some swim bladder issues or constipation issues but nothing a little Epsom salt can't help

3 weeks home!

A major milestone today, I no longer have to cut up his pellets to feed him, he can eat the Omega pellets in one piece off my finger.

Awesome! Just be careful with his feedings, since he does have that crooked spine he'll be much more prone to his swim bladder being squished especially with so much food. He looks too gutted in these last photos so you can feed more often but feed less and that will help him grow like a weed too!

His color is looking great!

Thanks :) Yeah I feed him usually three times a day, two pellets the first two feedings then one on the last. Maybe I'll try 5 times with one pellet each time. I think when I took those pictures he had just eaten too, so that might be part of what you're seeing, but yeah I see what ya mean.

Well I thought I would be moving in the next month so I didn't want to set my 20 gallon up just to tear it right back down again, but since I don't think I'm moving after all I decided to divide it. 10 gallons each for my 2 boys. Obviously I'm not done setting it up yet, but I think I'll move them this weekend while I'm around, just to keep an eye on things and make sure there isn't any trouble. But I hope they like it :)
