I think it's like having kids, it's a commitment to unconditional love regardless of how they turn out to be....you start with a resolve to commit regardless...

That's what I figured :) think I would love him/her anyway. If I win Student of the Month, I get a free betta, sadly it's pretty much all male VT so no babies but if I don't win I can get a baby and even if I do win I MIGHT be able to get a fourth though doubtful.

Agreed with the responses, I would love my bettas even if they ended up losing all their color and becoming a muddy brown! xD

The surprise is part of the fun, though. You can usually tell if they might be blue, green, red, etc. But the fun part is seeing exactly what kind of blue, green, red, etc. they become!

for both of mine, I had no idea why colors they'd turn out to be. both were relatively colorless when I got them (no stripes just pearly non pigmented fish)
i ended up with one gizzle and another black which might be a marble

Those are the best finds! I ended up with a marble as well, I am so excited to see her color journey! =]

I really think the best fish are the ones who are surprises. I haven't really a clue what color my newest baby will turn out to be, but that's kind of part of the excitement.

I love your black piebald/marble aokashi. Haven't seen the grizzle. Can you tell tail types when they are that young or not unless they are double tail or a flaring halfmoon?
