Talking My first ever betta!!

well i went back to the lfs today to see if the betta i saw yesterday was still there... and he was!

i dont know much about bettas (him being my first) but it looks like he has ripped his fins or got fin rot? do you think they will grow back or no?

i personally think hes soo pretty, couldnt get a clear pic of him so took 2 vids of him at lfs. the other betta in the video is the one that got imported with him but sold already.

shame you cant really see how bright and shimmery his colours are!

you think i should have him or look for a more healthy one?

any opinion appreciated :)

i know he is a crown tail but if you look at the tail, it looks stumpy with a few odd whispy bits. so looks like hes had fin rot/ripped tail and its growing back?

Congratulations :) He's really pretty.

I agree he's a crown tail but he does look like he has a few rays that were broken off. They should grow back no problem.

yea if you watch the last few seconds of the first vid it looks like the top half of his tail has be cut sort of thing?

yea when he goes into his new tank here next week he will be spoilt dont worry.

was just worried about his tail but if it will grow back, he will look even prettier!
