Exclamation Wow! Unique Marble Veiltail

I got this gorgeous Marble Veiltail for free last week at Petsmart. Originally I had decided to stop getting Bettas from them after having one too many bad experiences.

My most recent bad experience happened when I brought home a beautiful white Halfmoon male with blue eyes. He looked to be tail biting, or so I thought. The next day after bringing him home he was showing signs of advanced fin rot with necrosis quickly consuming his body. Despite my best efforts at treating the disease, he soon died. I decided to bring his body back to Petsmart for a money refund. They didn't even ask what happened, although I felt the need to explain it anyway.

Then I saw this boy and had to take him home.

I had to sanitize everything and watch all my boys closely. I even had a nightmare that the disease had spread, but thankfully it was just a dream. I've been waiting to make sure this boy is healthy before showing him to you guys. He had a few rips in his tail that you can see in the pics, but those are already healed. A few days have passed and everything is going great. So without further ado, here he is!

Still trying to pick a name. I've narrowed it down to Jasper, Merlin, or Enzo.

Enzo it is! Thanks guys

It will be very exciting to see how he changes, since he is a marble.

Wow, I love that shade of red! Usually blue/red bettas are the standard, but his splotches or red really make him stand out. :)
