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!"
