LoL I got overzealous & bought one from the family owned FS. The bettas always looked perky & water clean, only 10-15 were there, and the staff was great.
I picked the smallest one VT, I'm pretty sure he's male.
He's adjusting to his new tank now, so the light is off, I will have pix tomorrow.
He started flaring at the filter current & tank wires immediately LOL He nipped the plants.
Edit: He just ate 3 pellets! :)
But before I put him in, I placed his transport bag next to the 10G danio tank (also bought 4
leopard danios for my 2 "glo" ones) & he wasn't flaring, but was looking quite intently at the other fish. lol
I also bought a plant with large leaves for him to lay on, and gave him a tiki man w/ an open
mouth to hide in.... I bought a "Betta Wheel", a faux wood floating log w/ a hole, but
I think it's too big for the 3G.
I'm moving him to the 10G when I get a 20G though.
I bought him the same pellets the store fed him, and also some color enhancing pellets too.
A snail hitched a ride on the plant so I'm sure he'll enjoy that snack LOL
His coloring is opal-ish. White, blue, green, purple, pink mixed...I love opals & he was the only one
w/ this coloring. :)
