Red face I think I have the betta bug

so as some of you may know, about 3 weeks for my b-day I got a BEAUTIFUL marble Cambodian PK boy from aquabid. (who is now named Hiroshi) then I decided I couldn't keep up with WC's in his 2 gal so I went and splurged another $60 on a five gal mini bow.

so today I casually walk into Petco, and of course somehow made my way into the betta section. and what do I do? I buy this guy, despite my mom's strict instructions not to get any more fish he is a bit greyish but he must be part chameleon because when I have him flare he turns DARK blue, even his eyeballs get dark but I just LOVE his pattern!!! he has stripes on his body and tiiiiny little black dots all over his fins, and the prettiest blue iridescence

so now I have to somehow put together a home for him, (yes I know, stupid of me to get another betta without a tank ready, but I swear something came over me, I HAD to buy him!! ) at least I still have Hiroshi's 2 gal that I can use for a little while, but no heater. my room is only about 74* but he should be alright as long as I get a heater in a week or so?


anyway here he is!! <3 names welcome, maybe something Japanese?

Beautiful! Can't wait to see what he looks like when he colors up . I know what you mean about the betta bug. I keep saying no more and that lasts all of a day or so. I just emailed a Thai breeder about getting a betta imbellis. I've never had a wild type betta so I'm excited to see what he has for sale.

Me and the betta bug are long time friends. After my last male died (I only have one girl right now) I said no more bettas, I was trying to take it easy on my self. I found this forum and now a few months later I am avidly combing through breeders to find two more (or more) guys to add to my collection. Once you start there's just no point in resisting. He's gorgeous (I love DTs)!
