Meringue the Veil Tail and the Amazing Pic Spam

I'm just so proud of my new boy, Meringue that I had to make a new thread just for him.

He's from Petsmart and was an unexpected purchase. I went in to look for ADFs and wound up with a betta. Funny how that happens.

I originally thought he had fin rot, but turns out it's likely just fin damage from captivity and ammonia.

In the yucky blue water



In hospital tank #1. Pic taken with a flash, looks like he has blue streaks in his tail :o


Hospital tank #2, more space, a cave, and a heater.


The morning after moving into tank #2, I found....a bubble nest! :o


Zooming around like a ping pong.


This morning he's still zooming around and appears to be colouring up. The blackish bits on his fins are taking on a distinct blue tinge.

Can anyone tell me what colour type he is? I mean, I know he's yellowish, but would that be how I'd describe him...a yellow veil tail?

Love your yella fella! He's really gorgeous ... I have a huge soft spot for yellows.

Yellows in bettas can range from extremely pale buttery/white yellow to a deep chocolate/dark yellow and everything in between.

Thank you, everyone! And Meringue says thank you too...that is if he ever stops long enough to realize he's being complimented XD

I have two more pictures from this morning:

FLYING MOUTH ATTACK!!!!


Photo without flash - the blue is quite noticeable now. Even his ventrals have pale blue streaks. The clearish fin regrowth on this caudal is also visible which is wonderful to see.
