I fear I will soon be getting another betta...
After Ruger died, I vowed I was going to get another with his coloration or at least very similar. His copper coloration is a dream coloration I've wanted for years!
I went to Petsmart tonight on my way home from work to get a few live plants (a java fern and marimo moss ball) and as usual, looked at the bettas. (I have got to STOP doing that lol) Well, I was looking through the halfmoons and found what I think is a copper coloration Halfmoon! I sadly didn't get a pic due to staff being right behind me...I got him to flare at one of his neighbors, and his form is NICE! :) I put him in the back of the bettas...I was able to resist, barely, tonight. I fear if he is there at the end of the week, he'll be coming home with me.
He doesn't have nearly the flowy finnage like Ruger had...looks more like a true halfmoon with the 180* spread in his tail...The ends of his fins were also kind of spikey, like a crowntail would be. I think it's called combtail?
He sort of resembled this when flaring, in terms of shape.
