new boy

well i messed up and wanted to go look at the live plants at petsupermarket and of course i had to walk by the bettas and they had the saddest little bettas in the smallest cups ever but when i looked at this boy my heart melted... his color was a little dull at the store but he really caught my eye and he was one of the most depressed so (of course) i couldnt leave him. i ordered another tank but for the time being hes going to have to share with Bart. his name is Schneider. what color would you call him?

in the store (so sad!)


you can see the color in his tail here


here you can see the little dots in his fins (so cute!)


cute face... although schneider is not as excited about pictures as bart


bart isnt sure what to think...


sharing the tank for the time being...

thanks guys!

He is basically the exact opposite of my first fish. bart is sweet and schneider is kinda feisty. bart loves pictures and will pose and hang out and let me snap pics all day and schneider would rather just skip the whole experience. barts a picky eater, schneider would eat anything i dropped in there. bart didnt like the leaf hammock and schneider uses it (which is freakin adorable btw)...

ive only seen them flare at each other once and i almost broke my neck trying to get over there to get a picture which diverted their attention to me so they stopped... ugh... it was super cute though lol

i dont know if you can tell from the pictures but his dorsal fin (i guess that would be what you call it) has little black dots in the color and the end of it is curled. its really cute!

just curious- what would cause his dorsal fin to curl at the end?

Water hardness causes the curling

I know that curled fins is a sign that the water hardness isn't right, but I've gotta admit.... it's pretty cute. XD
