Early last week I lost my oldest Betta boy, Razz, to a swim bladder issue we fought for over 4 months (I owned him for 1 and 1/2 years). I was devastated and contemplated shutting down that tank (I own 5 other boys though another boy also has swim bladder issues but hoping I caught it early...). I quickly realized I couldn't walk by all those sad fishy faces knowing I had a spare tank.
So meet my new boy, Rudy, from a local LFS. He is a CT but not really sure if his color has a specific name. He is peachy in color with a darker
Blue iridescence just starting to show up on his body and edges of some fins. (Anyone know if there is a specific name for this color?!)
I felt bad for not taking one of the boys near him that didn't look so good but after dealing with Razz and my currently sick Betta I just couldn't take on another Betta with problems. Rudy is quite the feisty boy and is loving his new 5g natural planted, soil based tank!
