I used to keep bettas (three males and a sorority of five) a few years back, but they passed away after a couple of years, so I stopped keeping them for awhile. I saw this guy in my LFS and had to pick him up! I think he is definitely reviving my love of bettas! On his way home, I was planning on naming him BetaMax, but my sister named him Vader and it's just stuck. He's got the Sith Lord red going on, lol.
I've only had him three days, his fins were clamped when I got him but they seem to be doing much better now. He's been eating like crazy too, he already knows it's feeding time when I open the lid and always begs for more pellets or blood worms, lol.
