3 New Bettas :)

I have two new bettas now and I love them both so dearly. I was at Big Al's yesterday buying some new supplies and my mom said that she wanted to start a tank or tetras. She picked out 5 neons and 2 blue............ They are so little its funny looking at them compared to all my bigger fish. Anyways, I quickly skimmed over the bettas there thinking that they wouldn't have anything too interesting when I saw him.... the most amazing betta I have ever seen. He is a steel blue HM betta and his name is R2D2.



Then as we were paying, my mom spotted a HUGE red VT and she just had to buy him and he is now in his old little tank and his name is Elmo.
(I'll take pictures of Elmo a little later and post them on this thread.)

She then spots some little bags with bettas in them behind the counter, slightly out of the way, and she asked the lady who was bagging our fish if they were for sale and of course YES! So I walked over and oh my goodness I found a red marble HMPK. I'm kind of second guessing myself though because the people who sold my him said that he was a guy but to me he looks like a girl so I'm gonna need some opinions from all you helpful people. I tried looking for the little white dot that all the females have but I can't find one on him, it doesn't really help that his fins cover that spot most of the time. Unforunately, he/she still doesn't have a name so hopefully once I get a gender then I will be able to think of a name.

Definitely looks like a female to me, though I could be wrong.

They look amazing! Congrats on your lucky finds!

I think, Blayze, the red HMPK is actually a boy. Its a little tricky to tell since he has a patch of white on his belly but it doesn't look like he has the white spot that female bettas do. Hopefully I'm right about this.
Thanks for all the nice comments about R2D2, I'm sure he appreciates them too, lol. Hopefully later on, if I can find a nice female for him, then I will use him as a breeder.

It does indeed look like a little girlie (: The shape of the body, her dorsal fin, and her ventral fins all indicate a gorgeous girlie. She's absolutely stunning though, the best female betta I've ever seen.
