I think Im officially addicted to Reds!!

I went to pet smart today to get dog food, and naturally I had to go and look by the bettas, there was this gorgeous red boy that caught my eye but I told myself that I didn't need him, I walked away got the dog food, then made my way to the register, but I couldn't stop thinking about that little boy, so of course I went back and got him! I couldn't resist! Im a sucker for a bright red betta!

So I would like you all to meet Valentino!

He's quite a hottie <3

I know what you mean! I have two red boys myself, one CT and a red butterfly VT. They're so vibrant!

Is that a spade tail? :o It comes out so far in the middle, then so sharply back!

Hes handsome. I like reds, too <3

Nope.. just a young VT. He is REALLY nice. I can see why you couldn't leave him there.

I've been very tempted to bring home a red VT myself lately but I'm hoping to find some breeding reds pretty soon so I'm holding out.

Wow i love the color:) Its so pure. Also i have a question for 1fish2fish: do all red bettas have those "dots" (iridescent-ish dots) on their body?

Many of them have the iridescence because it is such a difficult trait to breed out. The ideal extended red (or super red) betta carries no iridescence and no black scales.

yep.. what flarethis said. Although with the right female (and if he wasn't VT) I think that male could be bred. He's got very little iridescence and the black edging isn't that bad either.

I might breed him anyway, in a few generations I could breed the color into a halfmoon line with selective breeding and a nice red halfmoon female to begin with

I have a female who looks EXACTLY like him, except for, of course, being a female. Honestly, they look like they're from the same spawn, though I know they're not. Here's a picture of her.
