Crumb photo update

I had some time so you're all being treated to tons of photos today. :) Here's Crumb from when he was a first home (pic with blue glass rocks) and then today, with lots more color and much longer fins. He's quite handsome, i think. :)

hah. he does! if i leave the lights off.. he's super ghost!
i can't wait til he grows out fully. in the last 2 weeks he's gotten so big! i saw him flare today (it's rare) and i think he's even reached half moon! his father was a butterfly copper half moon so i'm hoping!

thanks. :) his eyes are what convinced me. I was originally going to take Bluey home, but then i looked down in the next container and saw these little eyes. And everywhere i went, they followed me. So my heart mushed up and i took him home. Then i went back for Bluey 2 weeks later. :) but even now.. crumb still stares at me all day.....with his little black eyes....

Did you get them from a breeder or a petstore?

A local breeder. I found her thru the midwest betta association. She invited me to come pick one (or two) out when I inquired via email about breeders in my area. Surprisingly there were few in my area and I'm in Chicago! I checked her out first and found out she had really good reviews. I didn't want to go the petstore route again. Out of the last 4 petstore bettas I had, 2 of them had chronic illnesses and 1 of them outright died in 3 days. he was covered in fungus and ick. I also wanted a young one because I've realized part of the joy is watching them grow and change! :) So I got these guys at about 5.5 months old and it's been a pleasure watching them grow up. They're not quite finished yet, either. I hope to have them for a long time.

Thats great! I would love to have a really young betta that I could watch grow up and change.I can understand not wanting to buy from petstores anymore since so many of them are sickly.

Yeah, sadly there are no decent breeders in my area. I did see an add in the classifieds a couple weeks ago for 'free juvenile betas'. I bet someone attempted breeding with no idea what they were getting into.
