New fish! Photo heavy, beware!

Casper suddenly and unexpectedly passed away. Rest easy, Casper.

I went out and got a new betta, who my fiance is calling Spike, but I just call him Fishie. So meet Mr. Spike Fishie.

Keep in mind he is still settling in, but is coming along wonderfully. :)








Sorry this is so heavy, lol. He has a chunk missing out of his tail but I can see some clear regrowth. More pictures to come once he's fully settled in :)

Oh, I think he is very beautiful. Striking, to have a white crowntail like that!

I think he's more of a marble. He's got purple/white/grey kinda all over. But it changes with the light so who know XD. But thank you!

I love him. :D He's a beautiful color. I don't know if the rays he is missing on his anal fin will come back like the others there though. My CTs never lost any rays. Since you just got him he's probably not half as vibrant as he will be after some time in proper care :D I don't think i've ever seen a copper colored dragon CT. (I think you said he was marked as a dragon right?)

I love the last picture where he's flaring and the one above, the little marking above his eye on that side makes him look like he has an eyebrow he can squinch down to look all tough. :)

If I saw him in a store I probably would have taken him home with me despite my resolution to not buy any more pet bettas :D

He is a dragon, but thank you! He surely is a looker if I say so myself. I found him in the corner of the shelf being antagonized by another male who was surely stressing himself out. I picked up Fishie/Spike and moved the other male so he would calm down. I want more betta fish so bad, but I can't have anymore until I move out...No space. :(
