After sadness comes beauty...

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!

I believe he is a chocolate...if I'm not mistaken. Might ask Lilnaugrim to confirm.

I'm sorry to hear about Razz

The new boy is beautiful though! He's a Bi-Color, he'd only be a Chocolate if his fins were fully yellow with more of a brown body.
