Pronounced "Kah-lie-iss". Latin for turquoise.
I tested my tank water myself 3 times before I decided to finally get a new fishy. He was the ONLY unique one left. At the store, his scales were a light color. After 3 hours of being in his new "house" his scales darkened to such a pretty color. In the photos that is the color he darkened to. His color was whiter. I'm not sure if you can see it very well, but his tail fins have black spots. So pretty when he flutters his tail. I tried to get a picture of them but his whole tail would be a blur :'(
Also, he has a bit of yellowing on the top of his head. I hope that will gain it's color. Lastly, I caught him resting? on one of the plants with his head pointing downward. When I put my fingers to the tank he got up and swam off healthy appearing. ALL of my bettas has never done this? Is it something to worry about?
Here are photos of him:
