Gorgeous! he looks blue to me.. I think you used the flash in the second pic? He looks very healthy and seems to have no tail damage. Great choice!

I am REALLY glad to see someone who put the time and effort into doing things the correct way by researching! Good for you! :)

Your new boy is beautiful. I'm excited to hear how he likes his new home.

He seems happy!

My new friend seems to like his new home, especially . By daylight it's clear he's blue with red highlights here & there (see the new photo from the proud new betta parent!).

I was a bit worried when he stayed in hiding this morning, but when we returned from church he happily snapped up the three pellets I gave him. (Didn't feed him yesterday) As the day wore on he became more active. He seems to prefer late afternoon/evening to morning/early afternoon.

He's still flitting about his home as I watch him now - and it's nearly 8pm. He's even blown a few bubbles. Will do 50% water change tomorrow after work.

I know it's early yet, but I think he might make it!!

Congrats. He's beautfiul. One thing I noticed is the one orangish plant in his tank. Just be careful it's not too sharp at the ends. Betta's snag their tails pretty easily because they are long and delicate. Just something you might want to watch for.

Thanks for the warning. I ran both plants over pantyhose before using them, but will double-check tonight when I do my first 50% water change.

He is clearly enjoying his new surroundings. He was still swimming all over the tank when I turn out the light late last night. I thought he'd be sleeping on the bottom when I got up the way he was yesterday morning, but he was up near the top & was active from the moment I came downstairs, obviously watching every motion near his tank. I can see it won't be long before I'll be looking to upgrade to a larger tank, but it's still better than that tiny cup they had him in at the store.
