Colonel Sherman T. Potter - Photo Overload

I dropped my wife and daughter off at a store yesterday and headed over to Petco by myself(pretty sneaky, huh?). They had just received a bunch of new bettas. Since nobody was with me to say "no", I really had no choice but to get this guy. Labeled as a regular double tail, but he might be a half moon double tail.

He has a small tear in his dorsal fin, but that will heal up quickly. Waited until this morning to try feeding him. Gave him two pellets, which he ate right away.

I'm not very pleased with my pics, but here they are.

Wow your petco has some amazing bettas! He definitely looks like a hmdbt, and his colors are beautiful!

Thanks for the nice comments!

@LolaQuigs - If I had the room and money I could have brought home 30 beautiful males ranging from crown tails, double tails, and deltas to half moons and plakats. Really nice fish. If I could just bring myself to spend more than $6.99 on a fish I could bring home some pretty spectacular bettas.

The 3rd photo down really shows his tail spread nicely, and he's not flaring. Looks half moon to me, but who knows. Funny because I could have bought a fish labeled as a HMDT for $15 or so instead.
