He's more shy. Usually my little dudes adjust pretty quickly. But anyway... my awesome brother took me to buy another betta for my birthday. And I came across this guy. He's got a rip in his tail. It's straight from the edge to his body. Doesn't look infected or anything. No tail rot. Just ripped. It'll heal. Already looks better.
He's very shy, so this is the only clear picture I got. He looked quite violet colored when I got him. The warm clean water of course changed that a bit. I'm guessing I will eventually have a beautifully deep red male at some point. His color keeps getting deeper and more reddish day by day. I'm not even sure what the pattern would be called.
