Newest addition!

My new blue with redwash HM, that I got from PetSmart a week ago, died last night, possible from the "Mystery Disease."

I wasn't going to get a new one. "Two is enough," I said.... But I went back to Petsmart to show them the one that had died. They sent me to talk to an employee, who was standing right next to the Bettas.... I pretended I didn't see them.

The employee asked, "Do you want a replacement?" and waved at the line of Bettas behind me, "or a refund?"

I couldn't resist turning around.... And there he was. Looking at me. Flaring his little green, red and white fins. I couldn't help thinking, "He'd be PERFECT for the Christmas Betta Contest!"

These pictures were taken while he was floating in his icky-cup, acclimating. (He's a little darker than the first picture... His coloring is more like the 2nd picture.) There's also white around the edges of his fins, but it doesn't show up well in these photos.

He is gorgeous :) Again, I'm very sorry about your last betta :( I wish you very good luck with your new one! You'll have to tell me how he does and when you decide on a name for him!

I also understand the whole not being able to resist getting a new one. I have two now, but my brother just gave me a 10 gallon tank and a 3 gallon tank today that one of his friends gave him. xD I'll be asking for petco gift cards for christmas for sure, haha.

Thank you. His coloring really is more green than it shows.

Ayala - 10 gallon and 3 gallon tanks??!! Oh my. I can't wait to see what you get for them!

DragonFish - 11 tanks and 15 boys? Hahaha, and I thought I was addicted to Bettas.

Yes, two new tanks! I want a sorority. I don't know what I will do when I go to college. I think I might need to live off campus, haha. I won't have fish in either for awhile because I need to purchase a filter for both and decor, and heaters, and substrate.. and run a fishless cycle for both.

They do kind of accumulate quickly.. It seems many of the older members here have a lot! And most people start rapidly getting more after their first one or shortly after joining the site. I'd also like to have a halfmoon male for my 3 gallon... I'll just have to wait and see :p

Anyone know how to describe his color? Here's another picture. There's a nice layer of white around the edges of all of his fins. (I guess that makes him a multicolor, but what's his base color?)

I don't know what to call it but his body color would probably be the base color. He looks awesome!
