Lorne was my fist Betta, none will ever come close to the connection I had with him. However, he started me on a great adventure with fish.
My current boys are:
Bob (HMPK Big Ears, attacked by a pleco)
Samart (Giant HMPK - 3" - Loves his baby platty)
Tae (Mustard HMPK - 2 3/4" - a giant in attitude and color)
Brutus (Giant HMPK - 3 1/4" - amazing color, likes to save food for later)
Larry (Giant HMPK Mustard - apparently smaller than Brutus, but I think he is bigger now - 3 1/4+") - Hillarious fish...likes a pat on the head
Fred (TriColour HMPK - aka "twitchy" - he needs some time to settle in
All are from Thailand, I hope I've given them good homes.
They're all a little crazy, different from any LFS betta, and are definitely picky eaters.
