My blue-eyed boy

I honestly didn't know bettas could have blue eyes, but Courtland's match his color so beautifully. :)

wow, what a beautiful boy! Some bettas carry the blue eye gene, not a lot. Lude has it a bit, and only when he turns his eyes. Your boy has it all around!

Thank you! Yeah, he was my first Aquabid buy. I'm crazy about him, though he has so much finnage I think I may need to take some of the plants out of his tank!

Oh, my, he is beautifull <3 I love blue eyes! My girl Okami had blue eyes but she passed away from dropsy very young :(

He definitely does have some fins on him!

If anything, with such heavy finnage, the more plants the better! Gives him more to rest on ;)

I think less plants would be better.

Sometimes those with long finnage who are tailbiters because of it are only happy in a small, mostly bare tank. I think it's easier for them to get around if they don't have as much stuff to navigate around.

Ah, good point. I avoid heavier finned bettas other than VT but I thought more plants were better, thanks for clearing it up! I guess the OP can try whichever she thinks this blue eyed babe prefers :)

I'll have to watch him over the next few days and see. I'd like as many plants as possible, because I'm trying to do a silent cycle with them. :-/

His coloring looks somewhat like my Kohaku's, but his eyes are red. He's a beautiful boy though!

They are all different! Some may like less plants better and some may not mind more, but maybe if the tank were a giant jungle he might have troubles navigating through them with all that extra luggage?

The biggest issue with this is the tailbiters! If he's not a tailbiter he should be okay, but I know it's more common for ones with heavy finnage to get in to the habit :( he's beautiful! He may not mind more plants, either! It's all in the personality. :)
