Green and purple betta


So some of you may remember that I promised myself not to buy another Betta UNLESS it was solid green...

Well, not only did I find a solid green Betta, but he also has purple edging/tint so that when he swims he changes colors all over his body.

UNFORTUNATELY, I haven't bought him yet

I am still debating with the Mrs... I already have an empty 2.5 gallon I could put him in... the only thing I don't have is another heater... but I'll let you know how this goes, haha.

I got him!
It will be a few hours before any pictures (sorry).

But, HE IS BRILLIANT!

He is a different color in every light, but his normal color is a fresh dark green color. I've tried taking pictures but the flash illuminates his tail to a white-purple.

This is the best picture I can get. It doesn't show his color well, and I actually had to record a video of him then take a still picture FROM the video to get a good clean shot. He is amazing when he swims because green and purple shimmers ripple down his body. I am a proud new Betta owner today!

At a Petco!
One of my main arguments on buying him to my wife was, "He probably won't live another day, look how dirty their water is!"

My Petco, and even the Walmart I work in, has been recieving stunning Betta for the past 2 weeks. It is awesome.

Love those colors! If I had seen him at Petco I would have picked him up for sure!

There is actually another one there, but his fins weren't as long as the one I bought.

Can you talk to my husband and tell him one fish isn't nearly enough?
