He's lovely. I can't wait to see how he turns out! The stress stripes I saw in earlier pics are almost gone in the last one.

Thanks, Kohaku.

I really do wonder what he will look like. He has pretty much no colour on him.

USUALLY (not always), when they have that color gray, it turns black. He may rebel against my personal experience and go the total opposite way. lol

Hehe nope!! I've done it many times, people actually didn't believe me that it was the same fish a few times, lol. Goes to show you how little people know about how bettas are supposed to look!

Your new little guy is absolutely adorable! Hes in the same shape my Echo was in when I got him!

As for he horrid conditions of at store, contact the company, send an email through their website, include pictures of the fish in the store, list all of the ailments you witnessed in the fish. Tell them you realize that the majority of their money comes from the sale of the equipment for the fish and that neither you nor anyone you know will be buying anything from them again until they clean up their act! I did this and recieved phones calls from both the store manager and the regional manager, and I have seen improvement in the store I complained about. But you have to keep up on them!

I will do my best to get conditions to improve. >:D

I almost missed him. He was in one of the plastic cubbies all the way at the top. Way above eye level. I had to stand up on my tippy toes to reach him. I thought his cup was empty at first, because he was so small, pale, and almost transculent.

Do you think he will turn out like Echo? Echo's so lovely..

He could! Though Echo is the first Melano DT I've ever seen at any petstore! I really do think your boy is going to turn out to be dark! Maybe black, or melano, or very dark blue!

He has some red coming into his fin though, so maybe not.

I have Nightwish blasting in the background. The little guy was trying so hard to flare at his reflection when 7 Days to the Wolves came on.
