This was the first year that my son (2-1/2 years old) had some understanding about the role of Santa as the magical granter of Christmas wishes. His wish was for "a red fishy." I was never a fan of Bettas because I perceived them as boring fish that just sat in a tiny bowl. However, since there aren't too many red fish to choose from, I reluctantly settled on a male veiltail. I did some research and was impressed by how interesting these fish could be. I bought a 15 gallon Tetra starter kit and some substrate and asked a friend of mine to seed the filter media with his 55-gal cichlid tank. On Christmas Eve, I managed to set up the tank 3 feet from my son's sleeping head without waking him. Suffice it to say, he's pretty impressed by Santa's capabilities.

Not a bad looking fish for $1.99


Nice digs compared to the plastic cup!

IMO yes he looks very healthy. Just give him time to be all energetic if he isn't already!

Great color on him. You should know if he is stressed because the color on him would fade and his black head might turn grey.

Awesome photo and a wonderful story . I have had fish for many years and have to say Betta are about my favorite and most interactive. I hav one right here on my desk in a 5 gallon, and he is always coming around the driftwood to interact and do flybys etc. I have real plants that thye like to play around in and do the mirror up to the glass for about 5 minutes a couple times a day o keep them excited. Your son is a lucky boy !!!

What do you mean "red ones go faster"?
