Slate the New Betta

UPDATED PICTURES!
So this little guy was a rescue by my sister, the only other betta at the store was flushed (still alive) and she ended up with him free and with the good news that the store was no longer selling bettas....
My sister however, is a one betta person (Im trying to change that!!!!) and she begged me to take the little guy.... boy am I glad I did.... he has parasites. so Im clearing that up and he is back in his betta cup (to make water changes faster and easier) he has ended up being a gorgeous guy, a grey and light purple with a bit of red and green (and black) its SO hard to get a dcent picture of his coloring... partly because of the fact Im using a cell phone camera that has a horrible delay... and second because Slate like STARING.... he has made a bubble nest which he is VERY proud of though






See... a PAIN to get pictures of!!!





























And his nest again... he knows everyone else is jealous, lol

Aw I like the pictures where he is staring at the camera, haha! His body reminds me of blue velvet for some reason. Very cute!

Lol, these are his "new photos" he was in a 1.5 gallon but his poop made me start him on parasite treament so he is not floating in my sorority (82 degrees constantly... my warmest tank since the others stay at 78-79)
He clamped up a bit again after starting parasite treatment (and he has a bit of a swim bladder problem so he is fasting tomorrow)

Heres the originial thread with his full story and his originial pictures

I wish I had a better camera, lol
Thank you

LOL, my Norman is the same way -- as soon as I get near the tank with a camera, he twirls around to glare at me.

Slate's a pretty boy!

Ha - definitely not the only one. ;) Here's the look he gives me when I point that stupid flashy thing at him.
