Talking Christmas Rescue!

I didn't think I would have the oportunity to do this, but I was doing my volunteering at PetCo this evening and when I was done I went looking for a suitable betta for my cousin's gift. There were several pretty ones, but when I went to look on top of the turtle tank (where they seem to stockpile the knockouts) I saw thhis absolutely GORGEOUS crowntail and I just had to get him! He's red with a greenish blue iridesence on his body and rays. If I'm remembering tail types correctly, I think he's a crowntail plakat, because his fins are shorter than a normal crowntail (no evidence of fin rot). If only I could keep him! Ah, well. At least he'll belong to someone I know and can badger for pictures. :D
I'll get some pics up momentarily.

Eh, my camera doesn't really do him any justice.

My late CT looked just like that tail wise when I got him. He'll grow a bit more so be ready for super long rays likely 'forked' rays or double rayed as their called. Looks like an Orchid too. ^^ Lucky find!
