Pardon me if that is not the correct term.I have saltwater tanks and this is only my 3rd betta but by flaring up I meant tail and fins spread like they do when they are being aggressive or territoral

Yup, as was mentioned before.. they will spread out their fins, and flare out their big bills and "dance" when they see another betta or look in a mirror... or like one of mine does, when he sees me coming to his tank and we get into a flaring contest back and forth. Well.. all I can really do it puff out my cheeks.. lol

As for Curly, Looooooooove him! I am partial to the curling fins, as my favorite has it. (The same one mentioned above, got him from a LFS with the curl) So whenever I see one on another I go awwwww... Curly is handsome and even if his coloring isn't as vivid in the pictures, one can see he is something special.

He is flipped around so can't see it as easily.. but it's there.. now Xander has a curl buddy! =)

Myates you have a beautiful betta! I can tell his top fin looks just like Curlys.Does anyone know if that is a defect and would pass on to his offspring? Just curious :)

I don't know.. I've heard it was a deformity and I've heard was due to bad water.. But Xander has been with me about 2 months or so, constant upkeep on water changes and it never "fixed" so probably a deformity. Would be cute to have more, imo, it makes them "different" but in a nice way lol

I've always thought it could have been from bad breeding just like with any animal.I might breed him some day when I know more about it.he's just so happy to have a home and be out of that tiny cup :)
