New female mustard gas!

Hey guys! I haven't been around much since Ernie (my red veiltail boy) passed a few months ago. I decided back then that I was no longer going to get more bettas for a while. Well... that didn't last long. I fell in love with a sweet mustard gas girl a few weeks ago at the local pet store. She had been around for a while and was slowly losing her colour. He fins were getting ripped and she no longer looked healthy. She basically turned grey and dull. After a lot of debating, I decided to bring her home. She's done a 360 and is now a colourful, spunky girl who constantly gets into trouble. She recently stalked and hunted down one of my shrimps, then proceeded to eat it by shredding it the pieces and shaking it like crazy. It surprised me, but you never know what to expect with a betta. I decided to name her April, after April Ludgate in Parks and Rec. The name fits her perfectly.

Anyways, I have yet to be able to get a proper picture of her (i'll probably have later tonight or tomorrow), so here is a short video of her in the photo tank (she lives in a 5 gallon). Enjoy!

She's beautiful! She looks very similar to my girl Matisse ^_^

Just a side note, she's actually not a true MG, she's just a regular Bi-color, sorry to rain on your parade lol. To be considered a true MG she'd need a thicker band of blue around her fins like you see in my avatar fish. But nowaday's MG has been thrown around to any fish with yellow on it's fin.

Thanks! And thanks for the heads up on the color! She's from a pet shop, and the quality of the bettas here is just horrible, so finding a mustard gas was a surprise lol It makes much more sense that she's just a regular bi-color. I don't mind though, I find her gorgeous either way :)

PS, your avatar is stunning!

Welcome! Yeah we've got a few stores that aren't great either :-/ there's one LFS that I go to usually pretty frequently and they're still promoting bad Betta care and it just pains me to see them. If I could rescue them, I would!! but I have no more space with 21 Betta's and counting!

and thank you!! That's my boy Rembrandt My beautiful HM and first real Betta well at least one I didn't kill ><

As promised, here are some decent pictures of her. She was all over the place this morning so getting good pictures was almost impossible.
