The double tail is going in my 5-gallon because I think they require a little more care and patience than normal tails. The HM is going in one of the spare 2.5g tanks I have. :)

Sounds like a plan, Ajones.

BTW, what a NICE boyfriend you have - he sounds like a keeper!!! :)

I got the 5 gallon water changed out and acclimated the DT to the tank. He wasn't doing too well in his cup after the drive. Colour drained, stress stripes, listless, etc. After leaving him in some methylene blue before putting him in the tank, he seemed fine. His colour returned, and when I left my dorm he was nestled in the wisteria.

The HM was acclimated to his tank and was just ambling around when I left. He's very small for a HM. I think he might be a DeT but I won't know until he flares. He's by Survivor's tank.

Pictures will have to come tomorrow. I left my camera at my boyfriend's apartment.

And yes Lion Mom, he IS a keeper. :)

Laki the betta. :) He's very, very tiny. Just a young boy. He was marked HM at the store but I haven't seen him full-flare yet so he might just be a super delta. No clue.


As for my second new boy, my Double Tail red/purple male, he's still settling in. I can't get any good pictures of him. He's a very big betta. His body is also slightly deformed because he's such a HUGE fish in those tiny cups. He had been there for awhile I think. However, my boyfriend saw him, and wanted to bring him home. I have no good pictures of him yet though. They'll come when he's ready for them.

Laki is BEAUTIFUL!!! Don't worry, he will grow. :)

Looking forward to pics of the DT when he is ready.

I sure WISH stores would use bigger containers to keep bettas in. Wouldn't have to be huge or anything, just BIGGER! :(

You can tell the poor DT was cramped in his cup. He's a big boy. He was flaring up a storm at EVERYTHING though so I knew he was healthy. His body is a little misshapen and fins blown from flaring so bad, but he'll grow in nicely. As for his body straightening out, probably not, but my boyfriend sees him as beautiful so we bought him. :) I'll get pictures probably tomorrow.

What a beautiful set of fish! I'm always amazed at the colours because stores here only ever seem to have red or blue.
