WOW he's pretty! I'd say he's a black/orange bicolour. Totally gorgeous!!! <3333 I have a similar VT boy only he has yellow fins instead of orange.

Usually bettas this colour have black edges on their fins. If you see any type of fluff, bloodiness, or raggedness around the ends of his fins he would have rot. Judging by the pics, it looks like he's healthy :)

He probably just thinks of the goldfish as a threat, it's natural behaviour. If he flares constantly you might want to think of moving him somewhere out of sight of the goldfish.

r u sure on the flaring. cuz he only flared realy when i had them in the jars making him flare for pics..iv looked up on breeding and he was wiggling his body like a male would to show off to a female not just a normal flare :P and he if floating in the tank to regulate his heat in a kritter keeper so cant rly do much to make him not see them but he dont always flare. just when goldies are like making fishie faces at the sides as if there was food stuck to it but its not like a full flare just like 1/4 flare cause my goldies dont stay still.. lol [its not a cold water tank 80deg in the waters]

but thanks he is a beauty i hope he stays black and not go blu green :P

also is that a self nipped fin? or might that be from breeders removing him to late? o.O all his fins look a lil nipped to me...
