Kaspar's "brothers": Angelo and Sunny

In addition to Kaspar, my avatar betta I got last night, I have two others.

Meet Sunny:



Score from Petsmart. Platinum yellow butterfly dragon plakat. Only $8.99! These pet stores, sometimes they don't know what they have. Here's another of him in better light so you can see his colors better.



Before him, this past Spring during a visit to my hometown, I met Angelo:



It was love at first sight at Petco. He's a delta tail, and either a platinum or a very very very dilute opaque red. I've never been able to tell for sure. In any case, he was worth more than the $3.99 I paid for him. Sometimes I just want to ask those employees if they even know what they're looking at.

So that's my finned family - or at least the betta members of it. Not show fish and not as nice as some, but I'm proud of all three of them and am honored to have them.

They're both gorgeous fish. I'm still learning a lot about bettas, but what sets the girls apart from the boys? (besides the obvious) I mean, the first fish looks EXACTLY like my girl.... except for color differences. I know mine is a girl, lol she's got the white belly button goin' on ;D How do you know for sure that he's a boy? Just curious. :) That one is definitely my favorite! Love the yellow <3

Thank you. I'm very proud of all my betta family.

And BKElizabeth, females have an egg spot near their anus (looks like a white dot) and thinner ventral fins, which are the two slim ones. Males also have a "beard" that's visible near their gills, where females don't.

Ah, yes, the I call that the "belly button" to avoid using awkward words :) lol. So crazy that the males and females CAN look so similar! I love your first fish, regardless. Absolutely beautiful. The color is so sweet looking.
