Ahhh new guy :d

So the betta bug hit me strong this time...I went to walmart with a friend to find a betta. Most of of them looked depressed and dying so I didn't look at them. Feeling dissapointed, I told my friend if I don't find one soon we will have to hit PetSmart.

Then....he came along. My friend turned around the corner and pointed out this one guy. I've never seen such a handsome fellow like him and immediately fell in love. He was an orange veilteil with a peach colored body and some blue coloring his tail. I can tell he is going to turn into a marble because he's already changing color!

I named him Jack Skellington because of his color reminded me of the movie. His full name is Jack Arthur Skellington and I love him to pieces. I don't have pictures right now, but once I go home tommorrow and bring my Ipod, I will definitely take pictures!

Oh, one more thing (sorry this post is long) but I noticed he is trying to eat the rocks. Is that a bad thing? He's only done it once but its weird.

I know what you mean , just keep watching him, if it continues, get some larger size substrate or just remove it completely. My two tanks have no substrate it them and it makes it so much simple looking and is easier to clean.

I can't wait to show him, he is just so freaking cute! Today, when I go home, I'm going to go him a pineapple he can chill ax in and get him another plant because the plant I have doesn't fit in his tank :/

But I haven't seen colors like this on a fish like him so excited!
