Talking Atlas The Half-Moon!

This is my new Half-Moon Atlas! And I feel I should make this clear: he is named after the Atlas in Greek Mythology that was the Titan who held up the sky as a punishment by Zeus. Sorry, everyone I know has said he was named after a book XD Anyways, he is just gorgeous, I couldn't resist him! He's my second Betta that I own and currently in a 1g until further notice (there is a 5g waiting for him that is a Hospital Tank right now). I just love his colours!

When this page first came up, all I could see was the top third of the first picture. I was like, "Why is he upside down?!!!!" Then I scrolled down. Oh.

Lovely boy though. His colouring is so subtle that it's actually quite striking.

Ahaha, I actually thought that looking at the pictures on my computer! I thought so as well when I saw him a couple days ago- all I knew was that he would be fine if I had to beg my mom for years to let me get him XD

What a cutie, where'd you get him? Also, bad news, I think you were duped like me! Looks like your lad is a delta tail or roundtail.

My little boy was special ordered by petland & was labeled by their supplier as a blue halfmoon... He's a white/pastel with blue/red & iridescence delta (I knew he wasn't a halfmoon in the store as, even though he wouldn't flare for us, I could see that he didn't have enough finnage to flare to a full 180*). Over the last week though he has gained a lot more colour; when I first saw him, he was white with a few coloured spots. When I went back to pick him up, he had some faint blue and red on his fins. Now, and each day I look at him, I notice that he is getting more and more colour on the fins (the body is still totally white with iridescence).

Again, gorgeous colouring on you boy!

Oh I really don't care what kind he is- I didn't know when I first saw him, found out after I bought him today! I turned around said "Oh yeah, what kind it he?" XD And I got him from my LFS- it isn't a chain store.

Nice, that was like me; I knew he was a delta tail & not a halfmoon & I knew that halfmoons cost more, but I HAD to have him and nothing was going to change my heart after I fell in love with him!

Beautiful fish! Hope your mom will let you do water changes.. he needs 2-3 a week.. one or 2 50% and one 100% including a thorough rinsing of the gravel and everything. Good luck!!

Hmm, I can't really tell- I'm not the best at telling the differences between anything but a Crowntail aha
