Smile This is Cortez, my new boy

Yep, Cortez. XD

Ironically, he's really sweet. Unbelievably sweet. Hasn't even tried flaring, though he's quite enthusiastic about his pellets.

I understand he's not a complete melano, but... melano w/ some silver irridescence? Did I get that right?

I'm thinking about breeding him. That's why I got him actually... I think he's quite pretty.

It was between him and an inch-long solid red DBT but I loved his color and he was the only nice one- his smaller brother had a crooked spine.

Delta, am I correct? He was sold as a HM but I don't think he is. I'm still trying to coax him to flare.

So, without further ado, here is little one and a half inch Cortez, who has already blown a teeny little bubblenest for me. (Yes, I know he's a bit bloated, I'll sort that out.)

Btw pics do no justice. His dorsal fin is much more shiny, as is his body and other fins. He's covered in silver almost.

Gorgeous!! And yes he looks like a delta to me, but you never know he might grow into a halfmoon.

Wow. That's one of my dream bettas right there. I love the silver ones almost as much as I love the solid blue dragons. >_<

Thank you everyone :P

And scratch sweet. XD He's shown me a completely different side of himself now. Flares non-stop at anything and everything.
