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