My new possible breeder

For all you out there that have been following my "journy", you know that my male Snowflake had failed at spawning so I was forced..well not forced but you know what I mean..to get a new male. Well so far he has proven impossible to photograph properly, I would have a better chance of photographing bigfoot. After sitting there snapping shots for 2 hours and going through a set of batteries this is the best I could get. It shows his colors well and somewhat his shape but itsa bit misleading. It looks as if he would have full finnage when he flares, almost a halfmoon, but instead theres a gap between the dorsal and (caudal?) fin. A normal gap not fin rot or anything, just not very pretty. Hopefully I cab fatten him up and he will flare it out.


Ohh and I will get better pics tomorrow once he settles in, he was getting mad when I wouldnt leave him alone for 2 hours.

Edit: Best part is, he was priced as a $6.97 delta male, but we got a new cashier that sold him as a $3.39 female splended, saved me some money.

No I got him from a local place that normally keeps their bettas in GREAT conditions but this time they looked slightly worse, he said its because it was "alsmost time for a water change" and I thought, ohh yah the dirty water just made them LOOK dead.
