I knew I would get myself in trouble today...my new boy

When I got out of work today, I decided to stop into my several of my LFS. After leaving PETCO and petsmart without a betta, I thought I had spared myself a spontaneous betta purchase. Oh....was I wrong. I walked into animal jungle and instantly fell in love. I walked by him a billion times. Picked him up. Put him down. Over and over...telling myself I don't need another one. Completely unsuccessfully apparently...cuz here's my new boy.
In the store


Posing for his close up


The lights completely washed him out. And pardon the new tank bubbles.


More pics to come when he settles down. He's too busy exploring his new temporary home.

Thank you! No name yet. But then again I still haven't come up with a name for my other betta (the one in my avatar), and I've had him a month already. :/

I agree DQ! His colors are a little on the pale side right now but I'm hoping they'll pop a bit more with some TLC. I've been looking for an MG and I think I really found the one meant for me. Instant crush!

Update: Amazing what a few days in warm, clean water will do for a betta!

Checking out the intruder (aka IAL) in his territory:


Coloring up nicely...now if I can get his anal fin all healed up:
