Post An Update + Perseus, the Dragon Betta.

So it's been awhile since I've visited the site, due to moving back from college, re-starting work, and just settling back into the old routine. Unfortunately, I have bad news, my first betta, Zeus passed away a couple of days ago due to an unknown cause. I will miss him dearly. I also have good news however! Yesterday, I ventured over to our nearby fish specialty store and brought home a dragon betta, who I have named Perseus. (Gotta stick with the Greek names!) Here are some pictures!







As you can see, he's a yellow color with a turquoise/iridescent body. In the last picture his fins look kinda brown, because of the brown rock behind him. He looks a lot more yellow in his tank. He's in a two gallon filtered tank, for now.

I used to name my bettas regal sounding names but my latest betta is Neptune Poseidon! I'm thinking of naming my next betta Apollo Hermes, but I will probably change my mind. :P

I love the name of you fish! I'm a Greek/Classics major at my college, so I feel that its only appropriate to name my fish along the same lines! This time I went with a hero instead of a god's name.

I like those names too, but for some reason I get sucked into people names!
