Hullo Ladies, Gents, and Fish! Sexy has arrived. =D

I'm new to the forums, and ohmygoodness everyone has such beautiful fish! I live in such a rural area of WV, and finding fish is so rare around here. ): No pet stores, but plenty of stray dogs and cats. x)

I went to college, and I am such an animal lover, and of course they wouldn't allow animals in the dorms. SO, I went and got a fish! =D Not a lot of people do it, mainly because the majority simply want to go out and party, but I sit and watched my little betta swim around and be merry. =D

I first had him in a little nubby tank, the one you get a walmart that 'apparently' seats 'comfortably' two bettas. You know that tank. WELL, I only wanted on betta, and I got a little blue and red one off the counter that looked fiesty as ever, and ready to have a home. Of course, I took out that divider and he swam around kinda lonely around those two nubby little trees that it came with. He seemed happy though, he wasn't a complainer. He could flex out his fins inbetween the trees, but he looked so cooped.

SO I went out and got a 1.5 gallon tank, and he was like O.O OMG.

Needless to say, Sexy got Sexy. The name fit so well when I first got him, he loved to strut his stuff. Such big ole red fins, and all the other fish at walmart were so jealous.

Inc pics!
Let's hope I do this right.





He's actually grown a bit more since then, which made me kind of worry about his back fins. His bottom fin is HUGE now, and his back fin looks like it had actually kind of got cut? D: I got one silk plant as you can see, and that green plastic plant, but it has no sharp edges. It made me kind of worry, but it's growing out again. Is this something that Crowntails do? His fins have changed a LOT. I figured it might have something to do where he can just expand in the tank, so they grew a bit. He's also about a year old, I'm not sure how long we was sitting on the shelf, but I got him about late August.

Sexy's gotta go through college with me! Three more years! What's the life expectancy of a good Betta? He seems to be doing swell, no ick of the sorts, and now he has a POT BELLY. Let me tell you, Sexy needs to loose a few pounds, so I feed him sparingly throughout the week, but enough.

Another thing- Everyone has such pretty Bettas, and of course mine is sexy, but I would like another! D: Walmart has always the same ole colors, as there is about 35743954398 dopplegangers of Sexy. I think I went to a Petsmart, and they had such depressing bettas like walmart. ): No crowntails, either.

What's wrong with the name "Sexy?" he's a handsome guy!
I'm naming my next generation of bettas after stimulants - Ginseng, Caffeine, Nicotine, Guarana, Taurine...
Anyway, gorgeous fish! He looks similar to one of mine, Kaiser Wilhelm. :)

I want a crowntail, hmm....how long away is xmas, the parentals are always nagging me to think of something for them to get me and my birthday is straight after :P

A well looked after betta can live for about five years :) and his pot belly might mean he is constipated.
