guess what i got... for FREE!



black orchid! with amazing blue in his fins! sorry for bad pics!
found him in a bottom tank with red belly piranhas lol
no tail left but it will grow soon. said to the manager, "what would you be looking for the tailless black fighter...?" (i made him sound a lil bad tbh) manager looked at him, and then at me and said "just take him away...!" woohoo!!!! had to stop myself jumping with joy... (did that outside the door lol)
guessing super delta, going by his span.

called him Cola






as for my order from singapore; they didnt arrive due to the volcano ash think here in europe they couldnt get suitable flights to ireland and they were sold!!! OMG!! ah well. malaysia shipment in 4 weeks so maybe ill be lucky then..

but im so happy bout cola!!!!

yeah lol. poor guy. he has a few missing scales and stuff, but he should heal up quickly. he has aq salt added, he's flying around happily flaring and he's eating ill give him a week or so to make sure he has no diseases and add him into the big tank, with salmon who's doing better too.

i have a feeling a saw him a long time ago in the shop but didnt recognise him as a betta.... and afaik he was more browny than the black he is now.... but this time i just saw him and something in me went snap LOL

Maybe a stupid question... I'm new to the betta gig, but how can you tell if Cola is a VT, Plakat, or what? In looking at him through my ignorant eyes he looks like he could be either?
