I am new to the forum and this is my first betta, named Leo. He won my heart because he kept his eyes on me the whole time, swimming to meet me, begging "pick me!" "pick me!"
Since I brought him home (just three days ago) he continues to be enamored with me. He might be lazing around and as soon as I turn my head toward him, he heads straight for me and gives me a great show of fins with dips and dives. If I wiggle my fingers at him, he wiggles his body. We're a great team!
But best of all, he lets me touch him. He is totally fearless, whatever I put in his tank, he follows me putting it in, curious. If it's just my finger, he is just as curious. I slowly move to touch him and he only backs away when I actually touch him. But he doesn't leave, he just moves away.
I attach a picture because I can't seem to get a picture in my avatar. Maybe it's because I have a Mac. I've resized the photo, but still no go. If there is a thread here that will help me, please let me know.
Also, I was told he might be a Delta or a Butterfly. I would like to know more, like what color is he? I've looked at picture after picture and don't find one like him.
Anyway, Leo and I are great friends and I hope it stays that way.
