Uh oh... in trouble now. Betta #3

So... yeah. So much for being under control. -__-

Yesterday, I FINALLY completed the highly stressful introductions of 4 separate rat groups into one. I was down to only TWO cages to clean and I guess I was feeling... liberated?

So what do I do? I go and find an occupant for the other used tank I had found at Value Village (Manny's in the orange one, and I had set up the dark purple one too... but left it empty).

Can someone intervene please? Before I officially become obsessed?

Anyway...

Need a name for this GORGEOUS fella!



I wish I had more pictures, but my batteries died before I could get any more decent pictures. Gosh, this guy's a beaut, and yet SO hard to photograph. The white-ness on his body is really really bright, and every time I get a nicely focused picture, the white scales would be blurred cause they're SOOO shinny.

Anyway, the people at the store said he's a "premium betta"

I've never hear of that before... but he looks like one of those short-tailed kinds to me... Anyway, I couldn't be happier! Gosh, and the way the white on this sides just leaves a perfect stripe right down his back! *swooons*

Okay. LOL. Enough gushing. Thinking of names... names. Help?

I'm going with a Swampy/Bog theme for his tank. I've found a nice piece of drift wood which is soaking as I type and a huge bunch of Christmas (?) moss that I plan to cover it with.

And of course... moss balls! LOL. I love those things.

He's beautiful!! He'd be considered a dragon scale (i.e. the shiny thick scales) plakat. He may be a halfmoon plakat, but it is hard to see if his tail spans a full 180 degrees when he flares.

Oooo. How fancy! A "dragon" Plakat Betta.

I'm not sure if he's half moon either. I'm really bad at telling if it's a full 180 degrees or not. I always think... well, it's ALMOST 180 degrees... LOL. It's the same thing with Manny. He's supposed to be a Half Moon, but I donno... it doesn't look QUITE 180 to me >.<

No name suggestions? Just so you know, I have ZERO ability to come up with names. Of all the 7 rats and 2 hamsters and 3 mice I have... I only named 2 of them >.<

Anyway... waiting for batteries to charge for camera...

Meanwhile, this is a video I took of Drakon a few days ago. LOL He's SOOO greedy, and definitely not afraid of me at ALL!

I realize talking to him probably is like talking to a rock. And clicking at him is even MORE pointless... But I couldn't help it. -__-

He looks so... fiery to me. Like Fuego (Spanish for Fire) or Flame or even Sparky (heh).
