Birthday Betta!

Turned 24 yesterday and my favorite birthday gift was money from my brother for Petco to pick up a fish I've been eyeing for almost a week





I have a thing for the beat up ones that are determined to live haha- he looks like a delta tail elephant ear in opaque white with a hint of what could be gorgeous pink iridescence, but we shall see. Right now his is being quarantined in a 20 gallon all to himself :D he is blind (I believe, the eye is completely clouded over and he doesn't respond from that side) on the left side and the right "ear" is completely ripped to shreds but shows no signs of fun rot and is happy as a clam in his new digs

I've named him Soleks (kudos if you know the book it's from) and am in love cause he constantly looks gruff and particularly grumpy :)

updated pics:

he's an absolute treasure and has a personality like no other, turns out he is a Super delta, not quite a half moon and his ears are growing back in super fast


i moved him to a NPT and he has this awesome sleeping habit of being upside down (no joke) wedged in between the leaves of an indica :D he's gorgeous and happy and a good sport about his tank mate

never heard of one sleeping upside down, would have panicked for sure the first time I saw it. the fins are coming in very well, even faster than my rescue Rocky
