My new baby.

I just got him last night he was a gift. I haven't decided on a name yet but I think I will name him Riju.

Oh! Plus if anyone can tell me what type he is that would be great. I can't really tell. :l

I had some friends over and they commented about how ugly he was! But I think hes just the cutest thing. His color looks a lot different on camera so bare with me.

He has one very dark blue scale on his side and I think it's adorable!






The water looks orange-ish because of the lighting. I swear it's not dirty. :3

He's cute. Bettas are never ugly! I like how it looks like he has some nice wallpaper going on. What does his tank look like?

This is just a temp tank for him until I get a real tank for him next week.

I'm kinda worried about his color though he looks very light.

He's very cute. Don't worry, he should brighten up once he is totally settled. It takes a few days for them to get used to a new tank and all. It does look like he has wallpaper...that's cute. :)

bubble nests are good things!! wheni brought bluey home last week, he was truly a different fish from when i picked him out. (sorry if i repeated this story in another thread. i can't remember!) When i picked him out at, he had a stronger butterfly pattern of which on the tail. when i went to pick him up 2 weeks later (i took crumb home first because i was only intending to pick out ONE betta and fell in love with two...) he was a pale green color, no white, no black, a flesh colored head. I had to be convinced it was the same fish! But after i put him in his tank, his colors brightened slightly. And 3 days after he had regular lighting (he had been in the dark for 2 days before picking him up because his breeder was at a show) his blue was more vibrant than ever, his blacks all came back, and his white showed up. He was even better than the fish i picked out! So i'd say let little Riju settle, give him some nice light in the daytime, and some room to swim and you'll probably see some darker colors in a few days. :)

Technically he's a combtail and not a true crowntail, his fin webbing doesn't exceed at least a 33% reduction from the tips of the rays to meet the crowntail requirement.

Regardless of tail type classification, he's pretty. So long as he makes you happy that's all that matters.
