So I have gotten into rescuing babies...I am starting up a sorority tank with the females. Anyway, this little guy turned out to be a male, and I feel like if he got a home with one of you guys it would be better for him. I don't have much extra room for him and I think he could get more attention from someone who doesn't have a miniature 'betta farm' upstairs
Some information on him: I rescued him maybe a month and a half or two months back. He was very sick and lethargic, tiny and skinny when I got him and he has turned into a beautiful boy, still growing. He is still somewhat small, but big enough to where he is ready to move to a new permanant home with someone else. Not sure on his tail type yet, maybe he will turn out to be a veiltail...not sure...but you will get to see him finish growing up...and he has blue lipstick!
He gets fresh BS, SBS, or bloodworms twice a day (when he was younger he got it 3-5 times a day). He is currently in about maybe a two gallon planted tank right now with sunlight for his light. He is a very friendly guy and always comes up when I walk up. He builds bubblenests ALL the time and is in VERY good health...very active.
So here he is: he is a little more than an inch and a half from head to tail. He is a very beautiful blue (with blue lipstick), and his pelvic fins are a deep red tipped with white. That same deep red runs a little bit along his underbelly as well. There are colors and patterns in his finnage that you can't see as well in the pictures as you can in real life.
All I ask for him is $5...and this is only so I can continue to rescue them. It is only to cover the original cost of him and all the food that I have to buy.
If you are in the Phoenix area, that would be best as I have no experience with shipping and would hate to lose this sweet little guy.
Please let me know if you have any interest in him! The sooner he can find a new home, the sooner I can save more baby bettas from death and give them a better life!
Thanks for looking!
