looks like they may have just gotten the male. some pet stores(like walmart) don't fill the cups up all the way.

I agree. Like when you first bring the fish home and you take a pic before putting him in his tank? The water looks to be blue from the Methylene Blue they usually use at the store.

I don't know what you think that they are keeping him in that, I'm pretty sure they just got him or could be doing a water change.

i often take photos of my bettas in a half gallon Kritter Keeper, but it's just for photos. i'm sure the owner of that beautiful boy doesn't keep him like that. if you could find their page, i'm sure you'll see more photos of him, in an actual tank. :3

Is the blue stuff safe for Betta's? I mean you'd naturally think that if their putting it in there that it should be.. but I don't put that much faith in chain stores.

It's a safe mild medication. LFS use it to "prevent illnesses" that are caused by the dirty water. Go figure :P. They waste money on meds when clean water would be cheaper and probably easier.

I know! I bought a little girl the other day, thinking she was a beautiful green, turns out shes blue! LOL. She is still gorgeous, but I was so excited when I thought she was green!
