New boy :) Marius

Today I went to walmart and came home with a new boy. there were many with fin rot and with scales falling off, and I really wanted to save them; but im new to bettas, and don't have the knowledge/ the medicines to help. so I looked at this boy and fell in love. he is red, but some of his scales are outlined in black, and blue in the middle. also at the bottem of his iris is a blue spot, it almost looks like a cartoon with teary eyes. I don know how well you can see the blue, but if you would tell me what color he is? I know he is red, but is he just a solid red? what is the name for it? here are some pictures of my new baby :)

Beautiful! I'm so happy you got a new boy! And yes he's a solid red with some blue iridescence or irid. But just Solid Red will do :) His fins look great! I also love the blue in his eyes, that's what made me fall for most of my girls since they have that!

Thanks! He is A lot more friendly than Xavior was, and I think they had just gotten them in which is why he is in such good shape. I really wanted to save the sickly ones, but I don't know how to cure fin rot.. he was also the only one who didn't freak out at the sight of my hand.

And one more question, im trying to find out what the good and bad things to look for before breeding bettas (body wise) so could you tell me what is good and/or bad and if you would breed him?

I don't know much about breeding yet, still working my way up there. I wouldn't suggest posting in the Breeding/Showing section either because you might get hit hard lol

Just because he's a VT I wouldn't breed him, too many people don't care for them much anymore and you'd have lots of fry on your hands. But anywho, I do know that his Topline looks decent, he's got a bit of a dip behind his eyes on the top which I know is not desirable but you could get a female to fix that. But that's pretty much all I can comment on with that :)

And you know we'd always help you out if you did decide to get a sick one. Fin Rot is an easier one because all you need is Aquarium salt and StressCoat. But that's neither here nor there at this point :D

I am not really into breeding yet, so I won't really be much help here. Sorry. :(

He is a lot more active than my other 2 were when I brought them home, and hes eaten quite a bit as well. I got bloodworms today as well instead of feeding them the pellets.
