Went to look

That's all I went to do. I decided to hit up this small shop that I never go to so I could see what they had in stock. I told myself I was just looking.

I'm looking through the bettas and I find this black crowntail, it has a sunkin stomach and in a bowl the size of a tea cup. I could swear it is black, although the shop keep said black bettas usually have a gray tint to them and he is just a real dark blue. He has a hint of blue on his caudal fin. Most of the fin is a gray, almost see through. Any hints on what he is?

He is swimming around pretty good, enjoying his new space. Hit the one food pellet I put in pretty hard. No signs of any scale damage. Fins look intact, did notice a small hole in his caudal. Got to go to work soon, hopefully he'll be ok.

I'll try to get some better pictures of him.

Hi He's very pretty, but maybe he will color up. I heard of stories from people that their bettas were dull grey t first and then weeks later they are soo pretty.

Some better pictures, under the light he does seem very dark blue at certain angles. Any name suggestions?

Wow. He'll probably color up but the rays are a very nice color as it is! He'll need a Greek/Roman god name.

Day 5

Day 5, getting a little fatter, don't see any color yet on body but maybe getting alittle brighter on rays. Still no name. Pictures of a flare session with Barakus.

Oh, he's gorgeous! I think a greek/roman god name would work well on him too, maybe Achilles or Hades?
