That would be cool! I am thinking later this summer if I can find the space I would like to do a sorority. We'll have to see. Or at the very least possibly breed Koi. I know he isn't fancy, but I think if I could find a complimenting female could have a nice spawn.

Yeah I guess you would call him Super Red. Poor guy's been through a lot the past couple weeks, I even sadly brought him back to the pet store but it was meant to be and bought him back two days later. He is very special to me.

So if you remember my earlier post, I got Jacob on 1/1/2012. This is him on his first day:




I have learned about a lot about bettas in just half a month. Turns out the lava rock in my take shredded his fins to almost nothing, he was red all over because of the blood loss. Needless to say I removed it and he has only silk plants and a marimo ball. I added low-iodized salt to his tank (i didn't have aquarium or epsom) using the 1tsp/gal method, and he has made a full recovery. He is now eating daily and he is a real pig! I try to feed him sparingly throughout the day because of his appetite. Well anyway here is him this morning, just 18 days later. Note: his fins are still recovering so they look a little weird.

Notice the difference in his marbling:





I am still undecided on his fin type. i checked the sticky and he looks just like the picture for 'Comb' or SDet.

I got him at PetSmart. They dont have as big of a selection as Petco, but PetSmart's are way healthier, have big cups, and a knowledgeable staff. (at least in central fl) And they are cheap there (I only payed $5 for him and he was marked as HM.)

Oh nice! I want to see him! Walmart has them in the worst shape in my area, but I can't help but feel sad when i see them just sitting there. If I wasn't going to dorm I would have a room full of betta tanks!
