My name is Judy! I have had bettas before and loved them. My new betta is a metalic blue (kinda pearly looking and steel blue). He is a veil tailed adn he has a black head. I have named him blue pearl. I have had two albino females, red male veil tail, turquoise veil tail, and a dark blue veil tail in the past. All the above bettas lived to be 5 years old.
The red veil male I called King Betta as he made a bubble nest that covered the whole 2 gallon fish bowl opening.... Since he built a king size nest I named him King Betta.
Blue pearl is in a 2.5 gallon tank with a small filter and a live plant and a rock with a hole in it. His gravel is white. The plant came with two rams horn snails and Blue pearl is looking like he is going to have them for dinner when he gets a little bigger....lol! I need to find a heater and thermometer for the tank. Will get those I hope on Monday. I will take a picture of him soon and post it. Right now he is moving around to fast for my digital to snap his picture. All I get is his head or tail...lol!
I love this site and all the info and pictures!
