I Want This Guy! And Question!

Hey guys,

Went to the LPS today to check out some stuff!

First off, is this a halfmoon or veiltail? When he was still he looked like a veil, when moving he looked alot like a half. If he's a have gunna pick him up. Love the colours <3



And then this guy caught my eye! I probably wont pick him up because I do not have a proper setup, I still need a tank, filter, heater, gravel, plants, etc. and being thirteen, who know's how long it will take before I get the money + purchase everything :( Anyways here's the pictures! My name for him is Coconut :)

Before flaring


Thanks for the look!

Matt

The first looks like a Veiltail to me. When he flares the tips of his tail fin won't spread out all the way like a Halfmoon. He looks a lot like my Omelette (blue Veiltail).... But I could be wrong. You should try to get him to flare somehow... maybe move another different betta closer to him and see the results. Or somehow acquire a compact mirror and show it to him... though it could take a while. It took Omelette nearly 5 minutes to flare at his reflection.
I'd say buy them ALL because they look healthy and adorable xD
And also I see how you wouldn't be able to get too much money because I'm 14 (no jobs around here that would hire someone who's 14...) and I'm going to start customizing clay bettas and horse magnets. You should try something like that with polymer clay... you'd be surprised at how artistic you could be :)
And I love Coconut. You should get a 5/10 gallon tank and spilit it and put the 2 boys in it. Heheh that's what I would do (with little funds however). But don't go overboard. I'm going into highschool and already have too many pets (lol) and I'm going to get another goldfish soon. I just can't stop it with my little menagerie. And right now I'm just rambling and rolling on and getting off topic.
You should just buy both of them :)

I would say the VT for the first for sure, very pretty though.
The second I would say is a blue marble CT with cellophane(which is common in marbles)
He looks a lot my one of my HM boys who is a blue marble.
