After much preparation and then today a trip to two different PetSmarts and Petco I am excited to share my new Betta, Kurgan. I guess his color would be considered a turquoise and red bi-color (please correct me if I'm wrong!) and he is a HMDT.
After he was finally acclimated and able to be free in the tank he's been patrolling it all afternoon. I can see he's going to need more plants and probably a cave of some kind. He seems to be doing well. I don't know if y'all can tell but I'm very excited.
I can see there is going to be a learning curve on getting photos of him. Maybe tomorrow he will be calmer and I can get some better pictures.
