Wow... He's absolutely gorgeous! And looks uncannily like the little guy I picked up at Petco today, that I considered naming Zen before even seeing this thread. A tad bit creepy

black orchid is a color type- fully black fish with blue or lavender color between the rays. it's not necessarily RARE, seeing as it's a growing "trend" color within the betta community, but my understanding is that it's hard to breed into fish, and requires almost exclusive inbreeding to continue a line.

The lady at the store recommended bettafix to me and said she loved it.
Glad I didn't use it. It smelled so medicine-y.

also, thank you everyone for the information! More is completely welcome!
