Meet Fred!

I seen Fred at the LPS yesterday, new shipment of Bettas came in. I did leave with Fred, but told my best friend about him last night on the phone. She's home from the other side of the Country, she moved almost a year ago. Anyways, she was coming over today to see my son who's now 3 and my daughter who's 17 months. My daughter is her God Daughter. Anyways, she came with presents! And Fred was mine! She didn't understand that Bettas can't be thrown in a glass bowl, so I'll have to get a tank for him/heater or I'll divide my 5 or 10 gallon tank. But either way, here's Fred!

He's got some SBD and of course just came in a shipment. We'll do our best and hope in no time he's happy and healthy like the other 3 boys. He's already swimming more horizontally since I took these pics.

I believe he's a Steel Blue MG VT. He looks Royal Blue/Yellow in natural light. My camera likes to alter photos :P

I knowwww. That's why I went right to his tank at the store... and then noticed he had some issues :( 9/10 Bettas at our store are blue and red VT. I keep taking home the colored ones that are sick. There's a really healthy pure red boy there with a bubble nest and a vibrant violet with the longest fins I have ever seen. Again, healthy. But this guy wasn't. So when I left him there, I had to cry to someone and it was my friend Jenn! We took home two pet rats yesterday, I couldn't bring home a fish too. She was so nice as to go pick him up and take him here as a surprise.

So he is a Mustard? Is that different than MG? I am unfamiliar with these new types, as I really don't see them often :)

Fighter, I'll try to get a video! Those seem to be more true colors :D

Thanks everyone! Freddy is swimming better today, and he's actually blown a bubble nest. He's very proud and possessive over it.
