Congrats on your new fish! And welcome to the site!
The biggest community of fellow betta lovers are right here on this site! :) (*non-biased cough*)
He's handsome too! You said you want an aqua-ish betta, just wait the betta bug will bite you and soon enough you'll be sporting multiple bettas!! haha (I started with one too, as did many members here)
What size is that bowl? He might benefit from a cave to duck in to. Also, keep an open mind to the fact that once summer starts cooling down he will need a heater in his tank :)
All the best!
