Talking Here is the Baby Betta that was bloated!

I posted a thread about a Baby Betta being bloated. He was very thin when I got him. He has some beautiful coloring and he has put on some weight. I just noticed, when taking these pictures he has the same coloring as my King Betta I had about a 1 to 2 years ago.

Sorry for the bad quality! He is camera shy and a fast bugger. He body is a bit darker aqua color, and his fins are more red. I also positive it is a boy and he is a crowntail! :D He is very curious and loves to pick at everything!

I know the body of his tank is dirty. It is actually sand. I got some new plants in and just threw them in his tank overnight.

P.S. His name is Mercutio!

Thanks.

I am very happy. But I haven't been feeding him everyday. I feed him every other day to every two days. I don't what him to get floating problems again. I think that is what happened to him last time. I fed him two days in a row. I will give him more and more frequently as he puts weight on.

I was waiting for someone to mention something Romeo and Juliet. haha. But oddly that isn't what is his name came from.

I feed him two days in a row and he is doing fine. Just a little bloating, but no floating problems. :D
