I'm actually pretty excited. just a little bit ago, on an impulse buy, I bought a beautiful veil-tail male. I was walking past just to go look at the fish, and saw him. As I approached he began swimming around in circles.
His body is light blue with a slightly purple shimmer, and the part where his fins connect to his body is red, then it transitions into blue, with white on the outside. His (pectoral fins?) are white with a slightly blue shimmer to them. Unfortunately, I am staying at my Grandmas house with my Aunt tonight, so he's going to have to stay in his cup for the night.
We continued looking at the other bettas and, my aunt noticed that they had baby bettas. I ended up convincing her to get one. (i'm such a bad influence :D) anyway the one she picked, as far as we can tell, we know its a plakat. It has a split tail. Possibly a double tail? We are having a hard time telling the gender. Can anyone help with that?
Sorry for the long post! I'll post pictures of my new little guy once I get to my house tomorrow.
