Red face An Offer We Couldn't Refuse

We have been very lucky. The other day we were given the contact info for a woman in town who had ordered bettas off Aquabid from Thailand and was looking to downsize. We called her and she had three females available. One was a girl she'd ordered from Aquabid and the other two were fry from a couple of her AB bettas' spawns. They were so pretty we brought all three of them home -for only $10 a fish! (and even better, no shipping!)

Now on to the pictures:

The little ones are still colouring up a bit. The white one actually has a very light red/pink and blue butterfly on her fins and some very pretty blue sheen. What do you guys think? Good finds?

Lol I think we need to create a Betta-holics anonymous support group.

Ooo! The boys are so pretty! I especially love the little light coloured guy. He looks a lot like our little girl. We are totally going to need to talk about some stud services once they grow up a bit! LOL I would love to see some pictures of the girls too, once you can get them to stay still.

they are quite the find and totally by luck really, I can say one of the girls is cambodian - light bodied with red fins and the other has more of a yellow tinge both have a slight iridescence to them .. man i wish i had a good camera...
down the road i would be interested in lending one of them out... its always interesting to see what the babies will be.
