Crusoe: My First Betta Since Fabio Died Almost a Year Ago

This is Crusoe, my butterfly creamsicle veiltail. He's young, feisty, and has only been with me for 3 days. That hasn't stopped him from already making a bubble nest as of last night. He's got a great feisty personality and is very active. I'm loving my new guy.



This is his 5 gallon tank:



Here he is showing my camera who's in charge:



His favorite hiding place:



Hanging out on his favorite side of the tank:



I love my Crusoe!

Thank you! I made sure to give him as much space as I could. He was so eager to explore that as I was acclimating him in his cup he kept pushing against it, trying to swim around the tank. I gave the cup a gentle poke and he seemed satisfied that it began moving in the direction he was trying to swim.

He's so pretty!! I always get so jealous of people who can give such large tanks to their bettas! He must not even know what to do with himself half the time with all that space :)

Haha. I actually found this tank in my parents' attic and realised it was from my sister's frog from YEARS ago. I declared it as mine and refused to let my dad throw it out when he was clearing space up there. He offered to help me find a 10 gallon but I was like "Woah, hold on there. I AM only in a temporary student apartment. Maybe when I settle somewhere a bit more permanent."

I wonder how he'll react when I go home for Christmas vacation. It lasts over a month so I'll have to take him with me and I've only got a flat sided bowl for him there, a measly 2.5 gallons in comparison.

Very pretty! Reminds me of Oren, my Orange VT that has sadly passed though. Beautiful!

He is beautiful, I am happy for you, I waited about 6 months after Tetsu died to get Tenzen. . . . I DO love my Tenzen though.

Thank you! I think his tail is very different from other veils I've had. They usually have long tails that come almost to a point but his seems to be rounder than what I've seen. Or maybe I just haven't had a veil tail in a long time and forgot the shape.
