Talking He's Here! :) My first AB Win- PIC HEAVY

Here he is! He arrived in great shape. Only the tiniest chunk out of his tail. His colors were bright even when he came out of the box. He still needs a name though. I'm leaning towards Charybdis, but other suggestions are welcome. He has been swimming nonstop since I put him in his tank and enjoys playing in the filter flow. I'm in love with him.


His AB pic


His 5 gallon planted tank. He's my most spoiled betta.


checking out his marimo ball






I love his black lipstick




He's even flared already! Every time I put my finger up to the glass, he flares. hehe



That's all for now.

Gorgeous boy, gorgeous tank...

I'm jealous. I love his little white face and his black lipstick.

Congrats!

Now that is a handsome betta! He looks like he's full of personality too.

His face reminds me so much of my late grandpa though, for some reason. If he was mine, I would name him after my grandpa. xD

Thanks guys! :D And that sweet about your grandpa, Jupiter. I can see how his face could look like someone's grandpa.

He really does have a lot of personality. I've never had a betta off of AB, but he never seemed stressed and you'd never guess he just flew in from Thailand. He's been playing in the filter current, constantly exploring, flaring, and was bright ever since I opened the bag. I haven't tried to feed him yet, since he was acclimating, but I think he'll eat. I was expecting it to take a while for him to come out of his shell. He's basically my dream betta.

I wish I had the money and resources to breed him. He offered me a female, and saying no was very hard. If I had room, I would have gotten her, if only for a pet as well.
