i got him from kelsonbetta, he still hasn't given me feedback and was terrible to communicate with. I was pretty darn sure he was not the same fish, but he was SO small when he cam, almost as small as a nickel! So I couldn't tell. Yes his body is very light in color, and the one I "bought is black- different shaped head I think too.. He really doesn't ever flare, even when Spidey flares at him.
I stare at him, but I just can't see how his rays grew that long in such a short time. :( As I said he is very cute and friendly...just sucks that I paid $31 for him plus shipping. :(

Here is the response I received when I emailed him today:

I am sure I sent u the rite fish,from the pic ,it seems different.2 possibilites,during shipping 'either someone swap the fish with another mg ct, or yr mg ct is nt in stable condition which made it loses the colour.u must use almond leave extract for keeping bettas.pls take a upclose pic and I will see again. Thanks!


PS I DO use almond leaves and almond leave extract is in my conditioner. The other two in the tank have not lost color...
Weird...drama drama drama...LOL.??

It does not look like the same fish to me. I wouldn't buy from that breeder ever again. He does not seem very mature or professional from his response.

nope he is still the same. :(
there is no way he is the same fish, his body is light blue not black..he has black in his tail..but his tail is NOT black. :( But he is very sweet.
I keep looking for my real fish to show up on aquabid..like that would happen

Sorry to hear that. I am waiting on two fish I won on Aquabid to arrive, my biggest fear is that they send a "comparable" fish. Did the seller work something out with you?
