My new betta Shu-chan!
I got my little guy at Petsmart today after waiting weeks for my tank to cycle! I couldn't get shrimp there, but after getting him home and seeing how fiesty he is I might just leave him be by himself. He flares up when he sees my finger up against the tank, but maybe he is just on the defensive because he is in a new place. He loves the cave on the left and the one on the right, and likes to hang out around the three marimo who share his tank. I got him at walmart and I am not sure what his color is called. He is very shimmery and it's a blueish purple shimmer with little flashes of yellow, like oil on a pond in the sun. In this picture, where his fins are white where they come off his body, those spots are actually the shimmery blue color, not white but my camera just can't capture how beautiful he is. In certain angles his fins look almost a solid fuschia color, like his spots, with veins of blue/silver. I lovve watching him he's such a character. I think he is a veil tail, yes? I'm not so knowledgeable of bettas yet to tell.
