I've never put up pictures of Eros which is really a shame because he's absolutely gorgeous. He's my DBT HM and one of the 5 fish I bought from the Betta show back at the beginning of May. So here are a BUNCH of Eros pics and some of the other HM's that I snapped today.
**Sorry they're so big
I re-sized them in photobucket but they're coming up large for some reason?**
Eros.. He's a turquoise butterfly. It's hard to tell but he does have a very thin band of clear edge on his caudle. He also has overlapping lobes and even when flaring you can't see the separation. You have to look really close at his fins to see each separate lobe.
As you can see in this pic, one of his gill covers is stuck open. It's been that way since I got him and hasn't changed. It doesn't seem to bother him though.
Yes that is a white spot on his head
I think its really cute and I hope he doesn't marble out and loose it.
With Flash..(he was nice enough to stay in the exact same position LOL)
These are from today. I put him in a "Lee's Betta Keeper" and put Phoebe on the other side trying to get him to flare. Apparently she's not his type
Now onto the other guys..
I put Sid Vicious (Multi) and Rio (Marble) into the "Lee's" and took pics of them flaring. Still didn't get a 180 from Rio though. These two are the males I'll be breeding this summer
(Not a full flare..)
My baby is turning blue!
Even though the angles of the "Lee's" make it hard to get good pictures.. I think it worked out ok. They were definitely flaring LOL
Just a few others of them in the tank..
Neptune.. he's a tailbiter :( I won't be breeding him because of it. He also has a cute white spot on his head. I wonder if he and Eros are from the same breeder?
Sid Vicious.. This guy is so gorgeous.. I'm going to miss him when he goes to live with my Mom (who technically owns him). I'm hoping to get a really nice looking male from his spawn to keep as my own.
All done. I'll try to get pictures of ALL the fish in a few days.. that's gonna be a long thread
