My Betta Boys. :D

I'm new to this board and I decided to post some pictures of my boys. I'll eventually post pictures of all of the betta in my house but these are the only two that I own. (My mom owns three boys and I do have one other betta but her bowl is in a different part of the house that my tanks are in.)

Here is Joel:


He is that aqua blue like on his tail when he is in full lighting.

Here is my second boy Itami:

I caught him while swimming...thats why his tail looks squarish.


I *think* they are both Halfmoons but I am not to sure. :3 I will try to snap some pictures when their fins are more spread out. :3

Edit:
Joel is in a 5g and Itami is in a 10g.
I've had them both for a couple of months already, both tanks are cycled according to Petsmart. :3

Nope, they're not in the same tank. They are both in separate tanks and one is lower then the other so they can't see each other.

Joel is in a 5 gallon tank and Itami is in a 10 gallon tank.

Welcome to the forum!!!
oooo 0.o I love Joel too!!!! the aqua accents his black really well! Itami is cute too ;) They look like they could be brothers! lolz. Try to get them to flare and measure their caudal fin spread. 180 degrees is a legit halfmoon. Joel looks like he could be a halfmoon, Itami could be a super-delta but not so sure : p gorgoeus boys, cant wait to see the others!!!!

Lesan101,

It is true that females bettas can be put together in the same tank however the recondmended amount of betta females is at least 5 for a 10 gal. 3 females in a tank is possible but not recondmended. Having 2 females together could cause them to fight to death over becoming alpha. If you have a good number of females and you ad them in together at once, a pecking order can be established so they can live in harmony. Odd numbers are good :)

you can check out my sorority on my albums if you's like!! I have 6 girls living together in harmony:

I have 2 females living together one becuase they were together before and they are old and huge and I know about what I am doing however I have another sorority with 4 females in it with no problems.
And your boys are gorgeous either HM's or delta's we'd need to see a pic of them flaring to figure it out :)
