I saw a very pretty bright orange VT at my LFS yesterday...Fancy a road trip to Alabama, homegrown terror?
I've got a HMPK male, a DeT male, a HM male, and a HM female - and planning a rescue/rehome shortly, plus a HM spawn. Dear Lord, I've caught the betta fever, too!
I've owned every tail type except HMDT, CTPK, and DTCTPK. My favorites are the HMDT and the wild types! =)
haha with my schedule we're having trouble coordinating our "road trip" today to nashville (30 minutes away) for a white platinum HMPK...i couldn't see making it to alabama for anything other than a once-in-a-lifetime kinda fish :)
that said, i would absolutely KILL for a nice CTPK, especially if it was a giant. maybe not kill a PERSON, but i'd definitely murder the living poo out of some potted plants to get him :p
PKHMs are my favourites, followed by HMs and combtails. I think my first betta is going to be a DT, though, as my LFS has one I can't get off my mind! LOL. They're my second LEAST fave, but I'll be darned if he isn't worming his way into my heart!
DWL, I know what ya mean! My HMPK passed away yesterday, and now I have 3-4 spots open for rescues. I see a trip to walmart in my future. I haven't had a CT or VT in a while, kinda miss em! If I fill the 4 tanks, I'll have a grand total of 7.
Haha, went to the LFS today. Brought home 2 rescues. They keep the cups pretty clean, but they hold only 4-6oz of water. And some of their fish had fin rot. Anyway, I've now got Equinox and Steve =). Equinox is an orange VT with swim bladder issues, which I'm treating with epsom salt, and Steve is a blue cambodian/grizzle with a HUGE appetite. So, now I've got:
2 VT males
1 DeT male
1 HM female
