Smile New Girl- Such A Camera Hog.

Pics of the cute little new girl I got yesteday.

She already comes up to the front of the tank to say hi and do a little dance whenever I come in. And she loves the attention. She zooms around in there. It's pretty silly to watch. lol

There's a bit of a debate on names- my friends think I should call her "Sexy". I'm just wondering what my parents will think about that. XD Any suggestions, or should I keep the name?

Here she is, gill mites and all. :) I'm not even bothered by parasites anymore, really. So used to them. And her colors are pretty much spot on. I love her bad lip-stick job. Just above her upper lip. lol

Edit- sorry for the mostly crappy quality and the gross-looking yellow water... I put an IAL in there.






And the best I've saved for last- much clearer face shot. :3

She's adorable! How do you tell if a fish has gill parasites? I don't even know how I would begin to figure that out.

Thank you. :)

There's a little test that I find pretty reliable- you put a betta in a tank with new, clean water, 1 tsp of aquarium salt per gallon. If they twitch, start thrashing around, scratch their gills on objects in the tank, or look as if they're trying to cough something up, that's usually a pretty good indication.

Thank you both. :P

And FlareThis, that's what I'm thinking, too... when she flares it stretches back to her caudal.
I keep saying I'm going to spawn, and I never get to it... I'm wondering if I should conitnue the line dbt/ct line with her.
