introducing Aragorn!

this one is Crystal's (Opioid Slumber) fault...we went to the store to buy a pack of plants for our existing tanks, and she saw a beautiful boy we couldn't leave in the store. these pictures don't do him justice, he's a royal blue DeT with black marbling, and then butterfly fins that are blue, white and clear cellophane. his eyes are the most magnificently deep black, and he's gorgeous. he's a tricky little hider, hence his name (since Aragorn can "make himself unseen") that's also why he's so hard to get a clear shot of, he's a fast little bugger.

here's his setup (Opioid did the design work on it)


in the cup (the only place we got a semi-clear shot of him)



and now in his home (a 5 gallon aqueon bow-front)


and here's a video of him exploring his new home (pardon my dorky voice!):

aaaaaand he's been officially renamed. he's now TARDIS because he's exactly that shade of blue, and Crystal is obsessed with Doctor Who. sorry Strider, you've been ousted.

I am incredibly amused by both of the name choices....and feel like I should comment considering two of my boys are named Legolas and The Doctor. xD

He is absolutely STUNNING, totally AMAZING. I'm seriously jealous of that find! That black marble patch on him....just....cue keyboard mashing. <3

Little TARDIS is extremely active and is loving his spacious 5 gallon home! He is definitely the most active Betta we have. I absolutely could not pass him up. I told Johnny (Homegrown terror) "Baby, I really don't think I can leave this little guy at the store." I'm glad he agreed with me and so is TARDIS!

For those of you that don't watch Doctor Who, the TARDIS is the Doctor's spaceship. It's shaped like an old school police box from London in the 1950's-1960's. TARDIS stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space, which is why our fish has his entire name capitalized.

Here is a pic of the TARDIS
