Finally dug my camera out again and snapped some shots of my bettas. I have five at current, all male.
Pic-spam ahead, beware those with slower connections, these next couple posts may get a bit pic intensive.
my rescue-betta. Name comes from one of my old highschool's mascot, a shark. It was misspelled one year on our yearbooks (on the front page no less), instead proclaiming us the "skarks."
Pardon my thumb, I was holding up a mirror to get him to come to the front of the tank away from his bubble nest. xD
He builds his bubblenests under dried banana leaf sections I place in his tank, which he then guards jealously, they're his bubbles, not yours!
It fit and I couldn't think up anything better. ^__^; He's a pale yellow delta tail whose fin rays actually have little kinks on the ends of them - no, it's not fin rot, although I know, it does look strange and I certainly watched him like a hawk for the first week to see if they developed into anything or straightened back out when being placed in a bigger tank. But no, they appear to be permanent now. I wish I could get a good shot of him flaring to show you all, it's really quite a magnificient display when he opens those fins up.
I have water spots on the outside of my tank I haven't cleaned up yet
So called simply because he's the youngest and still smallest of my bettas. Fiesty little brat though. His name is probably only temporary until I can think up something better *shrugs* He's a royal blue crowntail male with a really nice tail spread, but be darned if my poor camera skills are good enough to get a decent shot of him. I'd really like to get a nice shot of his tail so I could confirm my suspicions of him being a double ray, but no such luck yet.
Flash on = lens flare that covers part of betta. No lens flare = looks like betta is in brown water and colors are way too dark.
Shrimp is not amused by the camera. This is his grumpy face. =[
