Here's pics. I see when he flares that his flare thingies (I dunno what they're called) are black, which is really striking. He's settling in just fine. He's really hungry though, hunting along the bottom. I don't imagine he's been fed in a while. He doesn't know food comes from above yet. I gave him two pellets but he didn't come for them. I'll try again tomorrow. I took a little cylinder from my aquaclear filter and put it in his filter and I transferred plants and gravel from Tango's tank. I'm hoping that'll help 'seed' the tank. Anyway, here's pics! :D Up close I can see that he's got yellowish dragonlike scales on his face.

I can't find pufferfish either and I don't want to have to spend a fortune to have them shipped!

Thanks Drama! They also had a King Betta who was green, with blue around his scales, he had gold irridescence (sp?) and a red tail. He was SO pretty, but huge. Maybe next time. :P

Wow! Your new guy is stunning! I love the white/black contrast with his "flare thingies".

Today he's settling in a little better. He's interested in me (his tank is right next to my computer monitor) and he swims back and forth in front of me. He ate a small abount of food this morning. Much like Tango did, he hates his light.

Now that he's coloring up I think he might be a dragon, white on pale blue-green. His face scales are kinda off white and dull colored compared to the rest of his shimmery scales and they make a mask on top of his head and over each of his eyes. Is that what a dragon generally looks like? I tried to take pics to show ya'll but he's sorta skittish. I did get a few but they didn't show the dragon look too well. He's nothing like his next door neighbor, Tango. Tango was all "Hi! Who are you? Wanna pet me? I like you! Is that a camera? YAY! I'll pose!" and he's kinda "What are you? Don't come to close! AHHH! A FLASH! I'M BLIND!"
Here's the new pics I took. Now I get how this obsession builds. :P

I'm purty sure he's a dragon!!!! He's STUNNING! :D If you want your new tank to cycle quick, get some of the gravel from Tango's tank in a cup and just put the cup in Whiskey's tank.
