Omg I can't believe it! Soo excited!

Well, most of you have been holding my hand and walking me through my first betta experience with Siku (in my avatar)- a rescue from a horrible "pet store".

Well, my boyfriend Zeb works for the government and has been in Afghanistan/Pakistan for the last 9 weeks (and gets home tomorrow! :), so has not been home to enjoy my new betta obsession. He has however gotten a kick out of it through emails and phone calls. Well, I had sent him a picture of a fish I saw on AB a while back just to show him how beautiful some of them are and how some day I may want one. He was red and black and silver.

WELL he just informed me that this handsome man in the attached pictures is all mine and coming to my little house in Colorado all the way from Bangkok! He is beyond stunning!!! He is 10x more beautiful than the fish I fist admired weeks ago!!! I am already soooo in love <3 My favorite color scheme.

I am a bit nervous about this whole shipping thing though. I feel like I am still learning so much about these little guys. I guess you can all expect a LOT more questions in the near future!! I dont know when he will be arriving yet, Zeb just bought him this afternoon!

Love the leopard spots! Don't worry about shipping :) I've gotten over 10 fish from Thailand and none have been DOA! As long as you slowly introduce him to your water conditions (over a period of many hours) then he'll be fine. I'm excited to see pics when he arrives!

@vilmarisv: Thank you, this is such an exciting surprise!
@Monroe: I love his spots too! Looks like a snow leopard or pheasant feather! I have never seen anything like it before. Thanks for the heads up on shipping. I feel better to know you have done it so much with out a hitch.

Here is his video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sE4RS...layer_embedded

Love the gorgeous boy! Better not let me get anywhere near him.

And your boyfriend is a keeper! That's such a fantastic thing for him to do!

I would kill to have that beautiful fish. HE IS SO PRETTY I CAN'T STAND IT!!! If you find him gone one day, I didn't steal him... nope, wasn't me. Definitely wasn't a henchman I hired. Nope, no way...

LOL!!! Based off of a few of the comments I don't think you would be the only culprit ;) And I can't say I could blame you either- I would do the same! Hehe. Well, in case you just really love him and happen to be shopping AB, he came from "bettaakapes" and his color was listed as "Black Dragon RED FIRE HM MALE" I checked out this breeders website and he had one other listed that looked just like him but even BIGGER that had just be sold. Maybe there will be more and we could have twins :D ha!
