The Whole Gang!

Well, sort of the whole gang. lol I just took a lot of pictures of all my lovelies (who would allow it). I even got one or two of Leonidas flaring at the camera! Face on shots are all he would allow tonight. XD

Not included in this batch but will continue trying:
Egil - red dragon HM. He ran and his from the camera.
Gwynfor - dragon PK/HMPK. Would not hold still at all.
Quite a few of the girls also would not cooperate.

Sorting through the pictures now. I will share the ones that turned out (even halfway decently) as I find them. I will of course tell you who is who (if they have been named) and a bit about them.


Pic 1: Sholto. He is a Halfmoon Bouble Tail. What his color is, I am unsure of. I plan on breeding him later this year to a dark blue female.
Pic 2: Mystery male. He is blue with an oddly colored face and pretty green iridescence. He blew a bubble nest this morning which is still there with no anchor!
Pic 3: HMPK male. Not yet named. His body is blue with a black "racing stripe". His fins are orange with black/very dark blue edging.
Pic 4: Tail biting male. Not yet named. Has some new growth starting. Brave little thing. Likes to flare at the above HMPK.
Pic 5: The same male. I am hoping that I can figure out why he destroys his tail and curb the habit if not completely eliminate it.
Pic 6: Same mystery male as Pic 2. This one shows his head coloring a bit better.

More to come as I continue to go through my pictures! Stay tuned for more!
Comments and questions are always welcome. The pictures attached to this post are all of males I got on Sunday.

Now for some more. ^_^

Pic 1: Mystery male from pics 2 & 6 in the original post. Really starting to enjoy this little guy. He has such a big personality for such a little fish!
Pic 2: Mystery male again. This one really shows the different color on his face.
Pic 3: Frost, male HMPK. Watching me watching him.
Pic 4: Uther, giant HMPK male. Black body with yellow on his face and beard.
Pic 5: Frost, male HMPK. In love with his color.
Pic 6: Frost

Got some more.

Pic 1: Uther, giant HMPK.
Pic 2: Uther again.
Pic 3: Frost, HMPK. I think he was wondering why I was taking his picture.
Pic 4: Uther
Pic 5: Frost again. This one shows how sometimes his color splashes on his tail look blue.
Pic 6: Egil, red dragon HM male. Was so hard to get any pictures of him.
Pic 7: Egil again. Love his little "racing stripe".

Aw. Thanks. I'm very proud of them.
Also, as a note, the male who is a tail biter is a HMDbT.

Pic 1: Leonidas flaring at the camera!
Pic 2: Leonidas giving the camera the eye between flares.
Pic 3: Leo flaring again!
Pic 4: Unnamed little female. She likes to hang about in the java moss.
Pic 5: Fflur. She is yellow and the dots are black as are her eyes. Opinions on her color are welcome.
Pic 6: Fflur.

Wouldn't a betta hurt himself biting his tail?

It happens sometimes. I have two tail biters now. As long as you keep their water clean, it wont really hurt them. HMs are prone to it. My Egil attacks his tail on a regular basis. Odin attacks his if I rearrange his decor. I think he does this because he is vision impaired. Their tails grow back.

I mean like a psychal pain like if I bit my arm out of boredom. O.o Taz and Romeo are both tail biters. Romeo's tail is just starting to come in finally

I don't really know. On one hand, I would think so. On the other, I'm just unsure. Egil keeps his tail short. He'll let it grow back a bit and then takes it down to near nothing again. Odin has stopped biting his as I have gotten to where I put his decorations back as they were fairly easily. He's pretty happy for being partially blind.
