New King and Delta tail! Look at those eyes!

It's been awhile since I've visited this site. Unfortunately, I've lost some of my original bettas, and most recently, my Vegas passed away....he was my first betta, rescued from WalMart. I had him for over two years. He filled with fluid and pineconed (kidney failure/dropsy?), and I gently put him to sleep with clove oil last Sunday.

Of course, after cleaning his tank, I could only think of rescuing another - and I've wanted another King ever since my Bubba died unexpectedly over the summer.

Well, because bettas tend to be like chips, you can't get just one! I went to Petco looking for a King, and of course, fell in love with a little Delta tail also. Look at the King I found - black and white with a hint of turquoise. And his eyes! I can't stop looking at him. He's healthy and happily adjusting to his 10g planted tank. The little Delta tail is Snoopy - aptly named for his black "nose". He's very active and has a whole planted 10g to himself with two mellow peppered corys. I've just been calling the King "King" - so any name suggestions would be helpful?? :)

Beautiful fish! Can't wait to see them once they're all settled in :)

But just so you know, cories need to be kept in shoals of at least 6, and peppered cories are too big for a 10g, they need (I think) a min of 20gs. You could do some Dwarf or Pygmy Cories though!
