My first Betta's!

Hi! Today I went fish shopping, and I was eager to get a pair of bettas. With $80 in hand, and many different shops to choose from, It was like heaven. At the first shop, I found just what I was looking for!

My unnamed male VT. He is a lovely blue with a black head. Two of his fins are maroon. In the sun, He shines an amazing turquoise green color.
I fell in love with him as soon as I saw him. He was the most feisty of the large choice of bettas, and by far the most nice looking.

My beautiful unnamed female. When I first got her, she was white/silver in color, with 2 very dark breeding stripes on her side. I think all the stress of moving played a part in her dramatic color change. I hope she's fine..
She has fins and a tail that are red near the body, then change to blue. Very nice.
She has a very aggressive nature.

I have their tanks next to eachother, and so far they seem to like eachother.
They are constantly flaring, especially the female.

Lol, thanks!
It's odd how she changed from silver/white with pale blue fins/tail into what she looks like now. I still love her though, She's so aggressive! She's almost constantly flaring. I love her tail too, It reminds me of a shell..

Nice fish. Congrats.

Your boy looks just like my first boy. I love when he swims under the tank light and the whole spectrum of colors shows up.

Thanks~
Good news, today my male started on a bubble nest! I'll get some pics soon. It's only small, but I'm really happy! I'm going to start conditioning them later today.

:D

If she's flaring all the time, I would check underneath to be sure she's not a plakat male, just to be sure :P If you see a small white spot, it's an egg spot, and it's most likely a girl.

Definitely a girl. At the pet shop the females where all together in a sorority, and she has the white spot. I guess shes just very aggressive.
