hi there so i havnt posted any pics of my betta cos i just couldnt get a decent one that was in focus and all that. i dont know what his colouring pattern is and bought him cos id always wanted a betta and id never seen one like him. i never knew you could get so many different types of betta until i started researching him. he's been living in a community for about 8 months and now has a 30 litre all to himself except for the khulis and shrimp. i'l be getting a new 57 litre tank made next week in which he and some ladies will be living. any identification on his colouring would be appreciated . most of the others at the shop i got him at where dieing or dead so im glad i got him out of there.
well i know for you guys he's pretty common but here to get the ones available in your petcos and so on i have to import them. im importing 3 females which are arriving on the 4th or the 11th, 2 halfmoons and a crowntail. the halfmoons are costing me 60 rand each which is equivilent to you guys paying like $200, i think. i wish we had the variety you guys have im seriously jealous.
the large belly was cos he had blood worms just before i took the pics and he seriously pigs out on them. i feed less than half a block and he will eat as much as he can hold and then stil try eat more. he sucks a worm in and then spits it out like bleargh cant eat anymore lol. i wont feed him today at all so he can work it off lol. i usually feed him every 2nd day anyway.
I haven't seen one like him, he's gorgeous!
I only give my guys one or two blood worms at a time, I've never been them in blocks.
Looks like he has fin rot or something?
Poor guy! Glad you rescued him! Post more pictures as he improves!
