Aww, thanks, guys! I love my new little dude. He's starting to learn that I come bearing food, and he's cautiously started swimming over to the glass when I come over. Drago, of course, learned long ago that I have food, so he's always dancing in front of the glass when I come over. In time, I hope Zen learns to do that, too!
The red spot on top of his head is really one of the things that attracted me to him. It's almost like a little red beret or something haha. I think he has a precious face... too cute, the way he stares at me. Next step? Work on getting him to flare for me, and build me a bubblenest!
PS: It's hard to see, but he actually has another red spot on his left side, just above his gills. You can kind of see it in the pics I have posted. Maybe he is what people call a "Koi-colored" betta. ^_^
