I DO think my Mom is starting to understand about my love for bettas because the last fish I got she made a comment about it and I said I could be addicted to something lot worse than bettas. lol

Dramaqueen - I was the other one who picked up a black HM recently. Mine was also from Petco, so I have to wonder if my fish and Fishyinpa's may be related. I wonder if all Petcos get their betta fish from the same distributor.

Fishyinpa - your boy is so pretty! From your pictures it looks like he has a bit of black lace in him because of the transparent section on the bottom of his anal fin. Very cool.

awesome! i want another betta

My mo misn't really into animals or anything, but my dad is. We have always had a cat, but my mom doesn't like dogs. I also had a Gerbil, but it bit me...twice. So i was kinda happy when it died and now that my allergies have been acting up, my kitty is an outdoor kat. Though, we have a 3 car garage with a cat door, so its not like we just stick her outside. She is usually just in the garage.

lol, my mom said the same thing as drama's. They have been a little worried recently, since i have been going through a rough time, so the other day she said her and my dad were happy i found another hobby to get into that won't hurt me and isn't bad... that would have been a good time to ask for another fish though she said i could get a new one if i paid for it... so now i just have to find one.

Crowntails are between $5-$7 here, but the halfmoons are $15!

Sounds similar to my guy, he's also quite small compared to my other two betta so I've been betting he's on the younger side too. Does your guy have any particular color shine when you put a bright light on him Fishyinpa? Mine has a green iridescence towards the front half of his body.

I wish the people at my local Petco were more intelligent, or cared about the fish, then maybe I could get an answer out of them about where or who they get their fish from, other than "Um, I think we get orders of fish in about once a week?"
The black bettas are really pretty though, it's nice to see how a betta can take such an otherwise dark and drab color and make it look so flashy. <3 It's just a pity its not a more common color in bettas, and that most black bettas are sterile. Curse genetics for making such pretty colors so hard to obtain!
