Here are a couple better pictures. :3 I appreciate your comments guys, and keep the names coming!! :D



And Peek-a-Boo betta. X3



So if he isnt a MG, and he supposedly isnt a chocolate, then could he be a black and orange butterfly? XD


Also, would he make a good mate for an orange dalmation?

hmmm i'd say yeah hes a chocolate =3 since the description of a chocolate is dark bodied ( brown-black) with yellow/orange fins. They can be bi colored or tri colored. A mustard gas is blue bodied with orange/yellow fins. HE IS SO CUTE!!! Hmmm name him Choco :P Or... since its almost halloween... ( lol he is black and orange with green...) you could name his something festive like Pumpkin, Jack for jack-o-lantern, or something else like that ^-^


Dont believe my experience? Here are some nifty coloration sights below:

What is a Chocolate Betta?

In recent times, the term Chocolate has come to be applied to a brown bodied betta with yellow fins. It is interesting to note that this color combination was also described by Maurus in his book, but he referred to it as 'brown/yellow bicolor'

Chocolate Betta splendens look brown to the eye, but are actually a black and yellow mix.

and although I dont agree with a few things from this site, she has the colors down pretty well:

chocolate:the body is dark, usually black but sometimes dark blue or dark green (Emerald dawn strain) and the fins are yellow or golden orange.
