Yeah :) I told the manager he probably wouldn't make it, but I wanted to try - and he's really good with that.


OMG Georgie.... His color is coming out beautifully. He is very active in the 1.7, and I was 2 feet away and the little grump flared at me I am pretty sure the phrase "I am bigger than you!" works for ALL my othe bettas, including my fighter o_o He did eat immediately yesterday.
His body is kind of a soft purple, and his caudal is strating to go a lovely blue <3 well... Where the fins aren't blackened and shrivelled from goldie ammonia!! His fins look like crumpled paper :/ or more like crumpled tissue paper! Once they heal up, I bet they'll be THICK.

I just wish I knew what age he was xD I've NEVER seen a large veil tail! EVER!!! :o and by large I mean a sturdy "thick" body.

Oh, I intend to get him in a 5 gallon WITHOUT a filter because his "bouyancy" issues in the store was from the filter!! I wanna go to petsmart and get that 5 gallon I saw, which is just the tank itself for I think 10.00? and then his own adjustable heater which is cheaper online I have one plant in there and he is thrilled No one has fake plants for goldies (well, wholesalers I doubt do) so he is loving the lonely, peaceful, filter free life!!

Oh Georgie, you ol' grump He flares only at me... Not his betta neighbors (both smexy females in separate tanks ) he lvoes his ONE plant in there, and is pretty active. But... because he looks so darn big, I want to get him that 5 gallon D: geesh it's bugging me...

He's like a giant, grumpy Shiloh o_o My curious question... Why is he so big? I realized kings are only PK... so why is my VT large? xD unless it was because whoever had him and the goldies had an awfully large tank, and there was ample space? I know what extra room does for bettas - my females showed me what 9 gallons differene made! Hopefully his "crumpled tissue paper" fins will get better

thanks! I knew Blue wouldn't make it, but that's fine. I tried, and at least gave him a home for the few hours I had him :p

As for Georgie... I wish there was a way to tell an age of a betta o.o
