Hi everyone! Introducing myself!

My name is Allison and I am new to betta fish. They're so awesome! I have two... one at work and one at home. I just adore their personalities!

This is my new fishie Godric The Grape





He's a purple and white doubletail. I've only had him for a week and it was touch and go for the first few days. He won't eat anything except live worms or frozen brine shrimp. Somehow I need to move him onto pellets. He's definitely perked up since I found some food he will eat and he's getting used to his new home. He's not puffing up much though :( I bought him from a guy down the street who buys from this breeder in Thailand.

This is my office fishie Freddie Mercury



My coworkers got him from Wal mart for my bday which kind of began my betta addiction. Freddie has adjusted well to office life and is very much a people fish. He has tons of personality. He eats food off my finger and dances for me when I come back to my desk. I adore him ^_^ He cheers me up! I actually look forward to going to work to see his happy dance in the morning.

I look forward to being a part of the forum and learning more about our pretty, funny little friends!

Welcome to the forum! Your fish are beautiful. I especially like Godric the Grape (awesome name too ) Be careful with the live worms though. They could make him sick. That's what I've heard, at least.

Wow thanks guys! I'm sure Godric would love all of the praise he has gotten here LOL I stopped feeding him live worms since he has accepted the frozen shrimp. I've heard the stories of bacteria from the live worms... plus I find them absolutely revolting. I don't mind the frozen shrimp so much.

I'm real lucky to live right down the street from this guy who gets shipments of like 700 Betta every month from Thailand. He even has the bigger ones, but he charges alot for them. Godric was $20 o.O But he was just so perky and aggressive when I held him up to the other fish I had to have him. He even wanted to take on the big Plakats the guy was selling LOL

Is purple a rare color in Bettas? I hardly ever see that color except as an accent. Godric isn't totally purple but he's mostly purple.

I wanna see your DTs Fire!

I know, sometimes you see a betta and go.... "Oh.... I HAVE to have him!"

Purple certainly isn't a common color in a betta, you're pretty lucky!

Freddie looks just like Aqua! Welcome!People are nice and no cussing!
Purple is rare! Aurora is rarer than gold! He turns colors depending time and mood. Not kidding!
Morning=Purple Noon=Blue Night=Pink Cool, right?
