Arrow Dumbo Betta

I walked into my LFS and they had dumbo bettas! Only about 5. They were 15.99. Even when I showed my fiance he was like so your getting another fish. lol I said I HAD to because they are different. Plus he is a plakat and I wanted another one of them. I dont think hes a halfmoon PK. Think he is just a dumbo PK.

He is currently in a breeder box in my fiance neon tetra tank because I have no other place for him. i would have floated the box in pineapples tank but i didnt want to stress both bettas out since they would then be able to see each other. he is swimming around the box fine. we are thinking of letting him loose with the tetras. I just dont want him getting hurt by them or him attacking the tetras. There are 7 neon tetras in the tank so i think it is a big enough school that they will leave him alone. What do you think?

Here are some pics of him

Some Bettas can live with neons. That tank looks ten to twenty to me.

its only 5.5 gallons. water params are good cause i taught my fiance on all that. although i told him to upgrade it to the 10 gallon, but he didnt want to. i think hes attached to it since he did it all himself lol but hes had the fish for a few months now and has had no deaths

Maybe you cou;d buy a ten or twenty and give the Betta the 5 and tell him the 10 or twenty is prettier and less work.
