Went to PetSmart for some heaters and more frozen bloodworms and they were having a big sale. Lots of betta caught my eye, including a partial EE HM, a very punk yellow CT and a pineapple VT, but after shopping around and considering the options, the bf and I settled on this guy.
I felt so bad for his fins, he has practically no ventrals and I really don't know if they'll ever come back or if they'll be gibbled for life.
Currently he's doing fine in his 5gallon, eating and exploring, he's so graceful - nice to be reminded of the simple beauty of the veiltails.
Here he is, Ryuu-Ten (sky dragon);
In his cup...
In his tank in the sunlight today =)
he has really long pectorals that are shaped more like my hand with the fingers held together.
