So I went to the LFS today and I was amazed how much better the bettas were! When I got Xander, all the cups were filthy brown with at least 1/2 an inch of waste on the bottom. That was about a month+ ago. Today it was amazing! They upgraded to much larger cups, about 3x bigger then the common ones. They had such a selection! Dalmations, whites, coppers, butterflies and so much more! One I saw was all white, but the tail which was black. Another was such a light metallic blue body and fin outline, the inside of the fins were mustard. Such beauties.. and another I wanted was a pink dalmation. Had a few of those. Took me forever.. but I chose the first one I saw and fell for when I walked in.
Sorry the pics are bad, but he's in his take home cup and I used a cell phone camera.. my Arby's was getting cold and he needed to get acclimated. So more pics to come when he calms down in a couple of days. Thinking up a name for him will be hard.
He's a spade tail. Top half of his body is metallic blue and the bottom half is dark red. His fins start out dark red, then blue then white. There are a couple places on his fins where the blue is very vivid and runs straight down his fins. Definatly not the best pics, and when he relaxes he will brighten up so much. <3 him already!
