hmmm new man in my life

ok i was going to copy misamiania and say i didnt "buy" another fish lol but changed directions

i got a new man in my life

hes not named yet as he was spur of moment. the pet stores got 1/2 price on "standard" fighters (vts lol) and im not going to say hes a "replacement" for Dastan(rip) because i will never find another fish like my man D.

heres the new man in my life:

(oh the pics are not the best, hes in a temp tank till tomorrow we need to divide the filter bay on the male tank and someone gets to share with Nero. still deciding who to move)

AND i dont know the technical term for the fins behind the gills but all my fish have clear cept this guy his have red n blue on them)
















^ my FAVE pic so far*


NB:
1. its a TEMP tank it holds 2 gall
2. the VERY LOW water level was the water out of his bag. when he settled i topped it up to a little over half way, theres plenty of room and no decor because hes in there ONE night at most. MAY toss in moss later tonight.
3. no theres no heater but hes right under a damn hot light lol
4. he looks bloated the shop fish are fed of a morning i wont feed him till in the morning then only one pellet till hes settled in tomorrow afternoon and then ill put him on the same feeding schedule as the others (3 pellets at 5:30pm)
5.


HE NEEDS A NAME HELP!!!


Thanks :)

Wow! He is just stunning!! Be careful, Im planning on developing my own line of veiltails for shows and I may just have to steal him!! He looks like a water color painting!!

OH i should also report on the rest of the bettas.
so as stated the stores having a 1/2 rice on the vts, so Nathan (fish man) ordered like 50 fish because they are selling well.
hmm
90% of the fish have fin damage, worst this stores ever had, im talking almost no bottom fin bar single rays webbing all gone. could be stress. but there was one other silver guy i kinda fell and was leaning towards but lil man above won out in the end. i never would have heard the end of it if i bought a fish in auch a bad way. i already hear enough about my "crap pet store quality" fish.

Oh he's so gorgeous! I really love the colors and he has such a sweet face and big brown eyes! :D His little pectoral fins are so adorable ( I think that's what they're called, the fins behind his gills).
