Thumbs up 2nd betta: Petco rescue crowntail

i went into petco to buy new filter cartridge for Jaws tank , i told my self i wouldnt even look @ the betta section but i did , i dont know if i should be happy or mad, on one side they had a a of color variations to chose from , on the other had i saw about half a dozen dead fish, many of them were smaller "baby" types, although they weren't labeled as such

them i saw this beautiful guy , very active and thought it would be shame to leave him here to die so i picked up him, i honestly coudnt afford a bigger tank @ the moment so i ended up getting him one of those 1 gallon keeper tanks for now.

anyways here are some pics i took in the car, are those shiny scales in the first picture natural or is that a stress sign?

That looks normal. He has iridescent coloring on top of the red. Itll shine when the light hits it. Hes so pretty, congrats. I just did the same today.

He's beautiful! The one color/type I never wanted was a red CT, but after getting Nixon (red butterfly CT) I am just smitten over them. I was at the LPS the other day too, came home with two new ones. Sigh.

I use those same glass beads in my tanks too, I love his look!! He's like "Swimming.. oh lovely room for gliding and... wait... whats this? O_o"
