Talking Meet Sprinkles! (Pic heavy)

I've had Sprinkles for 3 weeks now, and through this time he's become my best friend on lonely nights. He has a spunky personality and just cheers me up, no matter what. I found him at my local Petsmart stuck inside a very dirty cup, and he seemed not so happy. I chippered him up though, for he flares a lot and his color is more vibrant than ever. He's also super energetic now and just swims all the time.
Here he is!
Also, the tips of his fins are not black, they're actually blue.
I checked to make sure he doesn't have fin rot

He is very badass looking. :) Congrats! I like your flower cave thingy too, those are cute.

My Petsmart has pretty healthy looking bettas, at least compared to some other places I've seen. They mostly have veiltails and crowntails in red or blue, but some nice ones if you like red or blue. I just got a little guy there today! I don't even know exactly what he is. You guy is really cool looking though. Can we see more of the tank? (I love seeing people's tanks, there is so much variety)

Thank you cjconcepcion! His colors weren't as vivid when I first got him, and his fins were clamped for the first week or so when I had him. He seems like an entirely different fish now!

and thank you as well, mursey! My petsmart has mostly healthy bettas as well, which makes me happy. My petco, on the other hand..
You should post pictures of your new little guy, I'm curious to see him now!

Here's his tank:

Gorgeous! His finnage is amazing, I work at Petsmart (for three days now :P) and spend far too much time looking at the bettas but their crowntails rarely have such an impressive flare! Luckily, my store actually takes pretty good care of their bettas while in the store.. it's the customers who buy them I worry about!

He's really pretty.

Funny though, my PetCo is always great with the bettas, but my PetSmart treats them horribly!
