My Black Orchid CT female finally arrived today!

Here is what the fish is supposed to look like:


This is the fish i got:


I'm fairly certain its the same fish; opinions? Hopefully she will regain her color in a couple of days. Nonetheless, I love her.

Looks like she might have the bloat- they may have fed her a bunch before shipping. If thats what happened it might take a few days for the bloat to go down.
But yeah this is a nice looking little fish- I'm sure once she's settled in she'll go dark again and look awesome!

Most breeders know better and starve the fish for a couple of days before shipping. I don't think shes constipated because shes been having regular bowel movements. If anything, she is full of eggs.

I think she's full of eggs. She should color up once she settles down in her new home. She's beautiful!!!

She is very pretty. I agree with the above, I think her color will come in nicely once she is settled.

lol. i hope that isnt the case for me. my other female betta looked like this at one point too. it eventually released all the eggs because it didnt spawn.

im thinking of waiting for all the eggs to release, then reconditioning. too bad i dont have a suitable male for her to mate with.
