Stopping? What's that?

So I was walking through the Walmart near my house after dinner today. I was going there just to buy a bag of sand and a bag of aquarium salt. But then it happened. I saw the betta selection. I know I shouldn't have, I mean it's Walmart and they have horrible water conditions, but I saw him. I walked over and saw a beautiful male betta swimming in about 1/2" of water. He couldn't even fit his body straight. He looked at me and flashed, "take me home! I can't stay here much longer!" he pleaded. I thought about it, there was the 2.5g tank that I had. I have a filter, all I need is a heater. I picked up his dish-thing and he started swimming in circles almost like saying "haha suckers I got an owner:P". So I may have brought home yet another betta.

I still need to buy a heater, but I'll do that tomorrow. I believe he is a halfmoon with a little fin rot, or maybe a crowntail with a really full crown. Hopefully you can tell me. Also, his name is Benjamin (although I thought Fabio would be better...)


I have pictures!!!

He has room to SWIM:

Yes, he know's he's sexy;)

There's nothing crowntail about him! That's a HM or delta. I'd vote HM since I don't know what a delta is except heavy-fin.
He's gorgeous! Congrats!

I was thinking that, but for some reason he was labeled 'crowntail'. But I'm not complaining, he was only $3:)

Thanks! I'm going to do some digging on tail types on bettas:) Thanks!

Thanks! I love his coloring, he's really settled in from last night and is now strutting around his tank showing off what he's got!

Here's a video of Benjamin. Some pictures will be coming soon!

Aww..congrats on your new fishy..You can see his is very happy in his new home!! Lucky lil guy..He's a HM:) they probably marked him as CT because of the (spikey's) that are at the end of the tail, kind of like our lil guys tail, in Avi..

He's amazing! With a bit of "TLC" his fins should recover!
