Talking Rain: A Baby Betta Growing Up (Pic Heavy!)

Hello everyone! This is a journal I am going to keep that keeps track of my new baby betta's growth & progress. I wanted to record it for my own entertainment, as well as yours. So far, I think Rain is a he. Probably VT, but I'm hoping for anything else. (fingers crossed?) I bought him on 9/24/13. So without further ado, I give you Rain.

His tank:

The day he came home (9/24):

Please excuse the scratches on the tank.

I think this is the cutest picture. Giving his new mom attitude already. Bad boy.

Little flare!

I was using the mirror to try to get him to flare. When I was trying to take this picture, he swam behind the mirror, out of view, but I caught his tail!

I got a new heater for Rain today. The other one kept the temp at at least 76, but it would fluctuate too much from 76-80. That made me uncomfortable. So, I got a hydor heater. It is not very accurate because I had to turn the dial to 84 to get the temp to 81. Grr. But at least it's keeping at 81. I saw other peoples reviews that said they had to continue to keep turng up the dial to keep the same temp, so I hope that doesn't happen to me. Have you guys ever dealt with a hydor heater or maybe dealt with this issue with another heater?

I'm going to post this in the betta habitat forum too, so maybe I can get some more answers.

Anyways, does anyone have an opinion on tail type, gender, or color of Rain? Thanks guys. No pics today though.

Thank you! It's fun to watch the subtle changes in them. His baby stripes are starting to fade. I can't wait to know his final color.
