Hello Everyone! Pics of my bettas.

I am new to the forums, so I thought I would start off by posting pictures of my babies.


This picture is of Sookie and Spartacus. Sookie is the pink one and is a female betta. Spartacus is the blue one in this picture. This photo was taken one of the times Sookie "hopped the fence" onto Spartacus' side. Spartacus passed away a few days ago, unfortunately. This is an old picture, Sookie is quite a bit larger now, but in honor of Spartacus, I thought I would post a picture that shows the two buddies together.


This is the newest addition to our family, Gandalf. He is a Half-Moon betta and we got him shortly after Spartacus passed away this week. He has discovered a slight gap in the fence separating his area from Sookie's and is just small enough to fit through. Sookie doesn't seem to mind his frequent visits one bit.

Thanks. I was a little worried when he discovered the little gap in the fence and started going onto Sookie's side since he is SO much smaller than her, but she hasn't seemed to care.

Sookie has a huge personality too. The second you put your face up to the glass.. wham.. there she is! Whenever Spartacus (R.I.P.) would flare for her, she'd just be like... "Psshh.. You can't handle this!" and then she'd shake her fins at him and swim away. She loves to jump OVER the fence as well. It about gave me a heart attack the first time she did that. I even got it on video.

Is she a Cambodian? I don't know the different color variations by heart, but I did just discover that other thread here on the forums that explains them. Any idea what kind she is?

Oh, I know. Spartacus did it a few times, and she did it quite a few times, but we never actually saw either of them do it. One day, I figured I'd set up a camera. That video has given us a laugh plenty of times!

Gandalf and Sookie have started flaring and dancing for each other today. It's pretty cute because she is so much larger than he is. I just want to yell, "YOU GO, COUGAR!"

I have no idea. I'd say she's about 2.5 inches long (with tail.) Also, her tail looks more "spade" shaped to me when comparing it to the pictures on the other thread that describe the different shapes, but I am by no means an expert.
