Oops, I did it again... [Blue Delta Tail]

LOL at the title.

I now have 3 bettas... Well Sherman resides in my little bro's room but I still care for him...

I was at petco (I go just about every week) and here was this guy. This was his THIRD week there and he was still in the same cup of filthy water I bet. ugh. From the first time I saw him I really wanted him, I just love his little "face" it's too cute. I couldnt resist it the third time. Poor little dude is terrified of the camera so I only took a few pics. Dont want to stress him out too much. As you can see he is very pale and has stress stripes - never seen stress stripes on a long finned male before. Hopefully he'll color up soon so I can take more pics and see an improvement. He will be living in a .5 gallon tank until Thursday. Luckily, California is warming up again and the temp is at a comfy 76*. I suspect that he has fin rot, am I right? Also, is he a dragon?

PS: Trying to think of a name.

Me neither but he's so shiny and his white "chin" is awesome.

Decided to name him Mogget. After a character (male... well a free magic creature trapped in the body of a cat) from The Abhorsen Triology, the series of books I'm currently reading.

That betta is lovely! Wonderful rescue, I love his face! I got a "Delta tail" from Petco 1.5 weeks ago, but I swear he is a Halfmoon! :D He is the betta in my avatar. I absolutely love the blue on this guy! I would call him... Delish, because his fins are fabulous! Hehe. Or mayb Deep Blue? But you probably shouldn't listen to me, I have a veiltail named Dumbo! Lol.

Delta/Halfmoon

If his tail goes 180 degrees or more he is a Halfmoon. I have bought most of my original breeder males marked as Deltas. I like buying my Halfmoons for $6.49 instead of $14.99.

I agree. It's like, Nickel or dollar? Hehe. Every time I see my fish flare, it sure looks like 180 degrees to me, but he was labled Delta tail... oh well! Hehe. Great minds like to pay less for their bettas. :)

No, he doesn't seem to have fin rot. No black/brown edges that I can see. He's beautiful!
