Two New Boys- Murdoc and Stu

Petsmart.

I spent like 45 minutes in there going through bettas, heheh. I kept getting dirty looks from employees and wierd looks from customers... oh well.
I finally settled on a red butterfly CT and a yellow/blue VT. They were in such murky water that when I released them into their tanks, I thought they were going to die or something... their gills were opening and closing at an alarming rate, they were swimming around like crazy, and they were freaking at the hornwort. They're better now and flaring like crazy!

Here is Murdoc. I think he'd go well with Tallulah-Faye. His rays aren't perfect, but I think he's pretty. I am not a fan of CT's, but he really caught my eye for some reason. Both he and Stu are in 2 gallon pickle jars- I rinsed them out well, used a 5% bleach solution, so I'm sure they'll be fine... I hope. I think I worry too much, though.

Okay, enough of my babbling, Here is Murdoc (the CT) and Stu (VT).

You made a great choice. Thats the best part of having a betta! Picking out the perfect one because there are so many variations.

Awwww! Murdoc looks like Red, but Red has more pale color to his face.

Thank you for all the great comments guys

For those of you who are wondering... you kind of have to be a fan of the Gorillaz to get the names. (These are names I wouldn't usually choose.)

Yep, Murdoc is certainly bad-tempered! Flares like crazy at anything. He hates me. XD
I am so sorry about your Murdoch, goldyboy!

Thank you Really? I thought they were just as common as any other rather "unusual" colors... though I haven't seen one in real life until now. That's cool
