Welcome to the forum! Congratulations on your new betta! The little guy looks great. His colors are actually pretty close to my Leo's, except for the fact that Leo has no green in him.

Hey thanks alot!!!
I purchased him at the walmart in owensboro Ky on Fredricka St. Most of theirs looked really good. Maybe a few didnt look so hot. I decided to go ahead and get him in the tank since he had been stuck in that tiny bowl for who knows how long. In the matter of minutes he was exploring his new home. Here are a few pictures.


This is my favorite picture. It really shows his blue.

Well good news. My mom called my aunt and they arnt using the 48 Gallon Tank. So... now im trying to figure out how i want to set it up. Once i get it then i will start working on it a little at a time. I plan on white rock, probably fake plants, and then idk what lol. Any ideas? I will run it full size since the front is curved i think it would be hard to seal. And Titan is doing just fine :]

This is basically how the tank is designed. I found out its called a bow front tank.

hi, i think that such a big tank could be a little bad for the fish because he has to swim up to the surface to breath and the higher the tank is, the more physical effort to fish for breath and its going to get tired quite often

Wow. With that big of a tank, you could either...

Do one betta, with some cories, tetras, molys, platys, or some others (NOT ALL! Don't wanna overload it :P)
OR
A betta sorority, with a couple of cories.

W/ the betta sorority, you could have up to 20 girls in that size of a tank (:

Good luck! I was once going to have a 55 gallon sorority, but things changed, and it'll house my snake eventually.
