Two new boys!

Well, after loosing a rescue, I opted to get another betta (though, my first is still thriving). When I got the rescue, there was this steel grey with slightly irridescent colors that I really wanted, but I couldn't get two at that time. So, I went for the sick one, hoping to help him. When I went back today, he was still there. Most people wouldn't buy a "boring" grey betta with small fins, so it doesn't surprise me that he was there. He's also looking under the weather a bit, as he's been clamped for the past two days (I was at Petco yesterday too). Hoping I can help clear that up. He's got little white tips on his ventral fins, which I think is absolutely adorable XD I also happened to find a stunning halfmoon double tail (who happens to be a flare monster XD). I almost didn't grab him, but in the end, I did. Ended up spending another $200 at Petco, since I also needed a new tank to house these boys XD

Anyway, here are my two new boys! Yet to be named...

Are you sure the one in the last pic is a boy? He has the same fin & tail structure as my female, Teeney.

The plakat is all clamped up. Yes, I'm pretty sure he's a guy XD He looked very manly a few days ago, when I first found him. But I put off purchasing him, because I didn't have the place for a new fish. I gave up trying to resist today when I stopped in, so I grabbed a 10 gallon and decided to divide it.

Got some more pictures of my flare boy. The plakat is perking up, but not flaring just yet.

They didn't even have him properly labled, I think. Unless there is just a specific tail type called "double tail" XD That's all he was to them. Just a double tail. Others were labled HMDT or HMPKDT etc, but not this guy.

I think he's having difficulties adjusting to a new environment. He's pretty lethargic and has stopped eating, but he'll still flare any time I give him a mirror. He also flares at the plakat that lives next door, if I remove the paper that separates them. The plakat is a honeybadger XD doesn't care much about anything, and eats like a pig. He won't flare at the doubletail, won't flare at his reflection, won't even flare at my finger like my other two boys do XD I just have to get him to stop clamping.
