Meet Neptune :D

I spotted and instantly fell in love with this guy at the MN Betta Shop last week. He's a Thai import halfmoon, judged "show quality" by an IBC judge (for what that's worth :P) I just love how many shades of blue and turquoise show up on his body. I didn't make him flare because I didn't want to freak him out so soon after he was in a new tank, but he really didn't need to. His fins are gorgeous.




Some action shots:

Me too, I'm so glad I found out about it here! The guy who runs the shop is super nice and said I can email him any time if I have questions. He was really encouraging of me starting up my breeding tanks. And the best part is it's only 20 minutes away from me so the fish is in transit in a bag for less than a half hour before he's home :) Way less stressful than being shipped!

I may have to go back to get a halfmoon female to breed Neptune with for my second spawn; letting those genes go to waste would be too bad. They're getting in a new shipment on Wednesday so I'll be there right when the shop opens XD
