White Crowntail Betta

My walmarthas new betta breeder <3

AND WOW

GORGEOUS BETTAS

There is a "white" CT there.... fully grown.... he MIGHT be a marble as I saw faint black spots on his body and his fins were streaked in possibly light green (bad lighting so I cant be sure)

SO tempted to go get him... but the only CT I have Hurricane is having issues (since day 1) and Im worried about a 2nd CT with this the same issues (persistant bloating and SBD)

So... should I take the risk and get this new CT and risk him having the same issues (it is a differ breeder though)

Also... my old lady Tihs's age is catching up with her :/ her in in AQ salt and increased temp to 80 but its not lookin good :/

if you like him, i'd go for him!!!! i think all crown tails are a little more prone to bloating then other bettas, their bodies are so skinny and streamlined. You're probably already doing this, but it might help to feed him very small amounts of food, and feeding in the morning/early afternoon is best because their digestive systems slow down at night. I'm sorry that your female isn't doing well, that's always so sad =(

Are you in Florida by any chance?? Our walmart had some really nice looking crown tails the last time I was there too...I seriously looked at one guy for a good 30 minutes...decided to put him back and walk arund the store and think about it...I don't have anymore room right now, but he was gorgeous. I had never seen a crowntail like him. He was all white with blue dalmatian spots.

I have PT, so I feed around 4-5am and 6-7 at night

Im going to try reducing his food and feding him 3 times a day....

If he's still all Wlmart next time I go... I'll def get him.... just havent decided if I should make a special trip for him yet ;)

Tihs has now been moved to a smaller cup so i can monitor her better. doesnt look good though :/

I totally would, but I already have 11! I still need to set up my 20 gallon for my 4 bettas..They're in smaller tanks right now and I would like to get them into their permanent home first before I get another betta. Doing all the water changes on smaller filter-less tanks is time consuming...I love my little guys though..can't wait to get the 20 gallon divided up and running though.
