Loving looking at all the different bettas! Here's my first, Charlie :) I got him from walmart; this is when he was in his gallon tank, recently upped to a 5 gallon. He's a momma's boy; always swimming around to keep me in view :) (yes I'm a girl!)

They get super black, usually when he feels very secure or is excited because he see's a female betta.

Here's a horrible photo of how black he gets

Wow that blue OHM rosetail skyhawk is so pretty, I Hope he gives you some amazing purples :D I love your purple gas bettas, the color is so striking.

He's one of the accidental spawn. Sadly most ended up dying because I wasn't prepared at all, although how can you be when your fish decide to plunge into parenthood without asking first. Your brine shrimp eggs are probably what saved the few who made it. His fins are growing pretty slow, from what I've read online that is caused by the rosetail gene or I've managed to stunt his growth. I'm sad I didn't get anymore males I would of loved to see the variation in the spawn.

He's a beautiful fish, but definitely only pet quality which I'm fine with XD You can see he has a patch of deformed scales here.

@copperabian: yeah, I used to have a dragon copper With the SAME black border around him and it would get really dark when he was "satisfied" with something. I rarely saw him go pale.

Nice MG! The dragon scaling is pretty different though. It's only on his face. Your camera takes really nice pictures. It does the fish justice with the color and all.
