hermia

the name i selected from one of the characters in a midsummer night's dream (which im auditioning for this year :))

and i was at the mall looking at the pet store after my boyfriend got is halo 3 blah blah

and u was looking through the fishes and saw this CUTE LITTLE THING in a tank with the gouramis. it was a peachy yellow female betta and adorable. i had to buy her, the guy said it was 12 but since he hated his boss he was going to give me her for 10 so i said yay and got some little pellets.

i never really liked bettas i thought they were depressing and such.. but this girl is so lively and pretty and i love her already. my camera is crappy but ill get a new one soon.

she is tiny and about half the size the one in cups u get. i love her so much.

shes in my one gallon right now, but i think im going to put her in my 10 gallon when its ready in about a week or two.

she is without a doubt going to be the main star, she is GORGEOUS!

edit: best picture i could get, she actually likes the camera, but those pics were extremely blurry. first fish ever to actually like my camera.. lol here she is!!!

u should be jealous, she was quite a find.

and i wasnt mocking halo 3 it was just unimportant to the story so i said blah blah. i was actually playing it with my boyfriend in my house after we brought hermia home

i think shes full of eggs right now, which might explain her wonderful glow :)

shes a buetiful aprocot betta and she is looks to be what my fish guy calls a half moon, but i cant really see her back fin to well. if u wanted to put her in to the ten gallon right away that would be ok with my experience with bettas they dont react to ammonia, nitrate, and nitrite becuase they dont need to get oxygen from the water. but i would do what ur doing bc u dont want anything bad to happen to that lil buety! as far as eggs go i dont think thats the case, the pics not all that great but it seems like shes a lil bloated. the females wont produce eggs until a male triggers them to do so. i had one of my females die on me bc i put her in with my male but he never made the nest and she couldnt lay her eggs!!! it was very sad she looked a lot like yours but she had red etching on her fins. good luck!

Meg, I'm confused. I don't believe I've seen female bettas making bubblenest and guarding them. Their eggs do not float. Why else would male bettas make bubblenests if eggs float? This is logical.

Your picture appears to be a bubblenest, not a bunch of eggs floating. nvmyluv420 has a point.

If Hermia is the only betta there, my guess is she's a male.
