Talking My betta Shuichi and his friends the marimo!

My new betta Shu-chan!

I got my little guy at Petsmart today after waiting weeks for my tank to cycle! I couldn't get shrimp there, but after getting him home and seeing how fiesty he is I might just leave him be by himself. He flares up when he sees my finger up against the tank, but maybe he is just on the defensive because he is in a new place. He loves the cave on the left and the one on the right, and likes to hang out around the three marimo who share his tank. I got him at walmart and I am not sure what his color is called. He is very shimmery and it's a blueish purple shimmer with little flashes of yellow, like oil on a pond in the sun. In this picture, where his fins are white where they come off his body, those spots are actually the shimmery blue color, not white but my camera just can't capture how beautiful he is. In certain angles his fins look almost a solid fuschia color, like his spots, with veins of blue/silver. I lovve watching him he's such a character. I think he is a veil tail, yes? I'm not so knowledgeable of bettas yet to tell.

He's very pretty!

I know a few Shuichi's. Did you base his name on a real Japanese person or a fictional character? I'm very curious, if you don't mind my asking.

To bad you can't get him a Yuki Eiri without them fighting. ;) Then again that's all they seemed to do in the show anyways, lol!
