My best red CT died last night. Which put me in a sour mood for all of today - until my boyfriend decided he was taking me to the pet store to look for a new one. I hadn't been expecting to find anything, and had really wanted my next Betta to be from a breeder - but I saw this fellow, and I've never even seen a Betta with white on him in person, so I fell in love quite quickly.
Is indeed a Crowntail, his fins are just a bit droopy from being housed in a dirty cup.
In the photo his whites look more yellow than they really are. My sister was afraid to hold the bag anywhere but directly over the aquarium, so the lighting was bad.
Better photos to come soon?
