The one thing I noticed about chainstores and their bettas is that they get smaller and smaller. 8 years ago, bettas were pretty big fish. Now they ones they sell are so small they can't even eat normal pellets. I wouldn't be surprised if he was a mini halfmoon like everyone says. Could it be possible to be a HMPK? I love his colors, I have a thing for bright blues/bright "steel blues".

This guy has a pretty good sized body, he's from a family owned store that gets their fish from a breeder the owner knows. he's much bigger then the RT I got from petsmart, but not as big as the boy I have from petco. If he's younger he should get much bigger :D

i think what happened was he got all his fins nipped in the sorority tank and now they are just growing back. his body should get bigger as he matures.

I was wondering that myself, for my betta, I have to cut the pellets in half, and even then he sometimes still can't eat them.

It's am myth that all RT have bad scales. That fish could be RT and he looks like he probably is. Most OH's are RT anyway, the RT's extensive branching causes the OH effect.

Hmm well I have a RT that has no bad scales. I have pictures and video of him. I considered making a thread about it....I did a search on RT betta's and found a multitude of pictures with no bad scales. It's only the extreme RT's that have bad scales as well as other deformities....
