A crowntail female? I don't think so Petco.

My grandma and I went to petco today so I could buy a new thermometer, because my last one got stepped on. :/

Anyway, I wanted to get another silk plant too, and after getting those things, I had to look at the bettas. I saw an orange betta, and showed it to my grandma. Then I saw that it was labeled as a female crowntail. I told my grandma that he was no crowntail, or a female. After explaining to my grandma that they labeled him as a betta worth $3.99, when actually he is worth $12. She said if you want him, buy him, so..I did.

Anyway, so I think he is a delta tail, am I right? I need help with names too :P

Meet my new "crowntail female"























I was planning to get rid of this 1.5 gallon tank, but he seems happy in there :)

Oh, and SHHH, don't tell my grandpa! He doesn't know yet!

Wow he's beautiful! He looks like a delta tail but hard to tell without a flaring pic.He looks like a marble or a dalmatian.

Thank you, I'll try to get a flaring picture soon, but now my camera is dead and I need to charge it.

Oh, and he has the cutest blue eyes ever. It's like a little blue gem with range going through the middle.

Gorgeous find!! Yeah looks like you're right. Petco doesn't always label things correctly..so you get a great discount! I LOVE his colors! Here are my name suggestions: Calypso, Pandora, Champagne, SuperNova

Thanks,
here are some much better pictures of him. He's afraid of the camera, but he still wanted to show off! I like taking pictures :)

It looks like he is either a halmoon or a super delta, though I'm leaning towards halfmoon. Great find, he's georgeous!

I LOVE the "Life is so dull" expression he has XD He's just got these little "eyelids" that make him look like he just doesn't care, LOL. GREAT find, he's gorgeous! I've always been temped (BUT RESISTED) to switch the tops of the bowls. I'M SO BAD.

Thanks everyone :)

I hope I can figure out what he is for sure :/

I know CodeRed, I love his eyes too. That liitle orange streak across his blue eys make it seem like they are half shut ;)
