New Adopted Boy, Loki

A few weeks ago I adopted Loki, a crowntail, from appledust, another member on this forum. He arrived safely and settled in very quickly. It was my first shipped betta, so I was extremely nervous. But so far he hasn't had any troubles. He even follows my finger on the glass of the tank and when I was cleaning his tank one time he "kissed" my finger. First time that's happened to me! I have yet to see him flare, so I don't know if he is HM or DT. Your opinions would be appreciated! Now, pictures!





This one cracks me up. I put a leaf hammock in his tank, and he immediately went over to investigate. But instead of resting on it, he hovered under it and looked up. I title it "Betta leaf hammock: you're doing it wrong!"

Very nice! Reminds me of my second betta RIP.
U sure he's a crowntail? It's hard to tell bc he's not flaring but he looks like a single tail with ray reduction.

@Pew: He was just looking like "Iz dis rite??"

@Emmaela: Thank you! I laughed so hard when he was under the hammock. He's a goofball.

@vilmarisv: Appledust said he was a crowntail HM, but I've never ever seen him flare, so I can't tell if he's either, haha. What's the difference between crowntail and ray reduction??

@iheartmybettas: Thank you! He certainly has the most personality out of all of my boys. I am so glad I adopted him.

Oh, I remember speculating he was a combtail, hehe... Not a crowntail. But idk much about tail types.

Omg though! This thread makes me happy :) I'm so glad you adopted him too!!!

Appledust, you are correct, combtail is what you speculated! I forgot which one it was. I'm glad you like this thread, he is a very happy boy and I love him!

Thank you, Jupiter! He was so cute when he did that.
