2 New Boys, So pretty!

Today I went to petsmart with my stepmom to get a hood for my 29g and looked at the bettas, most were standard blue and reds and some dragons that were tempting but I wasnt looking for any new bettas as Ive been battling a sickness thats taken 5 of my bettas this past week, including my favorite one :/


As I was looking, I came across a brilliant yellow one, which you dont ever see around here. I was tempted but having no money and just losing so many of my guys stopped me. Until my stepmom came over and said I HAD to have him and she bought him for me. So now I have Sunshine (She told me I had to name him this XD)

He's such a bright yellow.
Its my birthday too so he's one of my favorite presents c:





Next is Cornelius, my best friend bought him and Im fish sitting will he sets up his 10 gallon and gets a heater. Im showing him off since he's such a looker. Mean as all heck though :P

His top fin has a pink shade to it but if the light hits it just right, it turns green.

Would he be a mustard gas because of the yellow fins?
Or a chocolate?

It actually not both. It's considered black copper, just a light tone of it. Maybe the parents are a copper dragon bred w/ some type of betta with a yellow tone in them.

I know the feeling of coming out of Petsmart with an unexpected Betta. Just happened to me on Friday. Now I have a red copper dragon HM and a pastel delta. Congrats on your new beauty!
