I think he is a very cool looking betta!
Really like the contrast in color between the body and fins!
Good luck with your job search!

I understand how you feel about this fish, but you might want to consider cycling a tank for him. It makes a huge difference in the world. I was recently gone for 10 days and I have a betta in a 5.5 gallon tank. Because the tank was cycled before I introduced the fish, my friends only had to feed him and not do frequent water changes.

+one for cycled tank. Judging from the numerous posts regarding sick Bettas,It appears that long term health is iffy in smaller containers unless maint is religously performed. What happens to these fish when owner becomes sick,goes on vacation, or otherwise becomes physically unable to clean the tanks due to injury or hospital stay? It would in my view,, be foolish to assume that others would be willing to assume the responsibility. Some possibly might, but would they be as dedicated? Taking care of one tank ,or bowl might not present such a task ,but I,, can see no benefit to the fish in the event of the afore mentioned.Those who collect these fish like pretty stones, or sea shells ,are often not doing these fish any favors with the exception,,of those who provide them with the care that ALL fish deserve which in my humble opinion is.. a filtered,heated tank of at least five gal.Opinions no doubt vary,, but It grows tiresome for me to observe the numerous posts concerning these fish when much if not most of the problem is directly related to poor water quality. Without dilligent maint of these little bowls,vases,jars,etc the water quality can go south in a matter of a few hours.ALL fish deserve better in my view.

I think he is way cool looking. :) Don't even get me started on going to the pet store. I can't go unless I need something specifically, and even then I must shield my eyes from the bettas (which never works).
