My babies :)
First, Sashimi. When I got him from Walmart he had a case of fin rot, but he's ok now. Just taking some time to grow back his fins. :) The new growth looks like it'll be a dark color. :o Excuse the watermarks and such. His home is in the process of being rearranged. :)
Next, Bento. :) A very unique coloration, I think. At some angles, the blue is the dominant color, and at other angles, the yellow is. That makes him especially fun to just watch. And he is constantly displaying at his reflection. :P He just wasn't feeling up to it when I tried to take his photograph tonight. He still loves patrolling the length of his 15g home, so I was able to get some decent shots anyway. :)
Bento is my new guy, taking the place of his unnamed predecessor, who is photographed here:
The poor little guy died just 3 days after I brought him home. The cause is still unknown to me, as all the other fish in that tank are lively and active. I think I'll have a hard time ever finding a betta as beautiful or mild-mannered. He really was a sweet guy.
And, finally, my Fugu :) I really fell in love with his colors and the fact that he seems to be a "dumbo" betta with a "lucky fin" (like Nemo)! He also has reddish-colored eyes and red specks above each eye socket that remind me of eyebrows :P He's just amazing-looking!
I think I have betta fever. :( I'd really love to set up more tanks and get more bettas. I'm sure I'll find room somewhere :P But I will stick with these three fellas for a while first to make sure they stay happy in their current situations :)
I hope you enjoy admiring my lovelies!
