petsmart Shopping spree!

So I went to petsmart today to get a new tank for Benz, who is looking more lively again :) I ended up buying him a siphon for his gravel a nice roomier tank. Its 1.77 gallons but is a lot better than the other one I had for him.

My sister came with me and she went to the betta section.. never a good idea right... and we brought home a beautiful halfmoon. He is very interesting I think he might be dragon scaled but not totally sure. We are in the process of setting up his tank a 2.5 gallon. He is gorgeous kinda looks like twins with Benz bit a full halfoon rather than plakat. Will take pics of both of them in their new homes soon :)

Okay so they were both released! Take it back they don't look like twins!

Cute pic of little tiny Benz, his plants are still in Qt so its pretty bare right now but I bought him a fake plant for now he ignores it for the most part :(



Here is the newbie: Is he dragon?

I found the 1.77 has a huge filter... My nephew is swapping me that for my 10 (he is 8 and gets to learn REAL care for bettas). I found the filter too harsh o.o shorter finned ones might have a chance because they are stronger swimmers. or so I found.

I have had bettas with pitch black eyes, blue eyes and tinged with red eyes.

His eyes are fine, I have a girl that looks like white with just black dots. You can see her in my avatar, she is the one on the very left. I think he is a regulary halfmoon, he looks nice though. What kind of plants did you buy?

Oh yeah I'm not using the filter for it I wanted to get the 2.56 filter but they were out and poor Benz was in a cup and he was dying to get out...once they taste freedom thats it haha you can't keep them in those cups

What do you mean by regulary? sorry Im still learning terms and things just curious. Oh yeah I see her its interesting you can see his eyes much clearer now. They are the anacharis one that I wrote about in the other thread. I don't know if they are safe to put in because they smell weird and the water looks cloudy. You said something about them adjusting to the water type?

Also the guy threw this is the bag with the anacharis as a "bonus" can you help me identify it, its really cool I see tons of new baby sprouting from it

he's beautiful! :o his eyes are fine. now, if they were clouded over or pure white, that's when ya gotta worry, but even then it's not like they miss eyesite. o-o i had an HMPK who was partly blind, and he lived happily until he died(i'm thinking he had an internal tumor, because there was a SPOT on his head that looked off).
