Red face I TOLD myself, no more CTs. And what do I do? Meet Skye.

Since my last 2 CTs died within a 2 weeks I decided to hold off on another CT for a while. I've got my 3 VTs (Jazz, Buster and Chronos) and I was determined that my next fish would be a HM. I've never had one and they are my favorite tail type. So I went to petco to look for one, and they only had double tail HMs and a couple HMs that didn't strike my fancy. I was going to leave but I went to get some neons. There were other betta there and I looked and fell in love with a white and light blue CT with a red spot. I know his fins aren't great, but his tail looks soft rather than spikey. I liked it.
So, here's Skye (I know, generic name, but I can't get it out of my head).





Shows his colors a little better



And before you ask, yes he is in a 1 gallon unheated bowl. This is TEMPORARY. Like until tomorrow temporary. I'm cleaning out my 5 gallon. I've been having so much trouble with it, I want to make sure it's safe before I put Skye in it.

HMs are one of my favourite tail types too, but I happen to be a huge sucker for CTs. He is really cute!

Beautiful, striking colors. Especially the cool blue splotches. When a name sticks, it must be destiny.

Aww he's beautiful, I love how his tail looks all 'soft' rather than spiky, which sometimes looks a little scary to me :)

Thanks guys :) I love him. I've got to get some better pics. He's one of those colors that is too dark without the flash, but washes out with it on since he's light.
