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?? :)
