Bought him today. He came from PetCo - debated hard between PetCo (mine does a nice job with their Bettas for the most part) and my LFS.
Daughter named him - Jewel. Haha
His cup from PetCo said he is a Halfmoon...
Seems happy so far in the 5 gallon...seems ok with the filter, likes his silk plants and I just gave him one lone NLS betta pellet.
I acclimated him for about one hour before letting him go free in the tank.
Added half a bottle of Dr Toms bacteria (holding the other half in reserve in case I need it a week or two down the road).
Hopefully it will be smooth sailing.
**Edited to apologize for all my pics being sideways - how do I fix that?!?!?!
