So you know that betta sale at petsmart?...

I'm sure you know this story. xP

Got a 9 dollar betta for 7.
Purple Dragon Plakat

Naraku x3


His new home. A 2.5 gallon bowl.





And Naraku! x3
He has a bit of fin rot, so I got some bettafix. He's undergoing treatment. :3

Very beautiful Betta! Correct me if I am wrong But, I think that what you have there is actually a Copper Dragon with a purple hue.

On another note: bettafix is bad for bettas as it can damage the labyrinth organ which bettas need to breath. For treatment of Fin Rot I would recommend putting him I'm QT with AQ salt dosed at 1tsp per gallon with daily 100% water changes and see how he does. If his fins are still shrinking after 5 days in treatment you can up the dose to 2tsp per gallon, still with 100% daily water changes. Do not continue treatment for more the 10 days.
But, to tell the truth I don't see any signs of Fin Rot.

Sorry I bombarded you with all this info! He is a great find!

Well, if you haven't had any problems with it before then I think it's fine. :)
He is a gorgeous boy!

Isn't he? x3

he was just sitting there, in the front, behind a sale sign, so he was hidden away. I saw him and was all, "-gasp- purple!.... mine."

I honestly was going to get just a female for $.99, and i saw one that looked almost exactly like Horizon a couple years ago, but I saw Naraku here and... well... I'm a sucker for Plakats... and my LPSes don't usually get plakats besides dragons... so... yeah... and they're usually 9 bucks...

Oh god. Petsmart is having a sale? I shouldn't go. I really shouldn't. But if they have fish like your new guy, my boyfriend will be dragging me away from the store kicking and screaming. Your new guy is beautiful! Also love the name ;)
