What is Titan?


Titan is a beautiful boy I got recently and I was just wondering what his coloration is called since he has such a beautiful powdery blue over most of his body a whiteish head with white trimming along the fin edges with hits of pink as well. Everyone I show images of him to just fall in love with him like I did.

He was also marked as a common male betta at the store I work at and got him from but it's kind of hard to see in the image provided but his tail has a vail look to it while the other fins show more of a crown like influence.

Also for now he is living in a 1 gal aquarium with an air stone to supply some circulation of the water, a heater, a silk plant. And the arch you see in the picture. I know it isn't ideal but for now until I can steal my old 10 gal from my mom's house and get a nice stand for it as well as other bits and pieces I would need the 1 gal is ideal for now especially since I live in an apartment with a roommate that doesn't want any other petz since I also have a cat and a dwarf rabbit. I was also just wondering if using spring water for him and for water changes was ok? I am sorry if some of these questions are in the wrong area. Before I forget the air stone is in an isolated area where it can't cause to much of a disturbance of the water.

He looks like a piebald veiltail. Not sure since its not a full flare. Wait till someone more experienced to comment...

I would just use tap water with water conditioner. I would also keep an eye on his ammonia level Since its 1g.

He's very pretty! I agree with ZeroChan that he looks like a veiltail. To me he appears to be a butterfly coloring wise, but if you haven't had him very long his color might change. (Due to being in better conditions now than he was at the pet shop).

After I put a heater in that was made for 1 gal and after putting it in i will say his color has really darkened. I wish I could get better pictures especially with him in full flare since he was doing it after putting him in his new home since he was mistaking his reflection for another male. He has gotten real camera shy though and will hide when I try to get any good ones.

Best one I could get to show darker colors
