Meet My New Betta!

I went to my LFS yesterday looking to see if they had some things I was planning on getting cheaper then online or at other stores. Well, even though they had one of those things, I left with a brand new betta! I've been told it's hard to just have one. Well, that is true.
So now, I'm introducing Zach! He's smaller than Owen, and I'm still learning his personality. He has what I call a shimmer, sometimes he has a steel blue color that shimmers across his body. Super pretty.
He's currently housed in a 2.5 gallon tank until I can go get him a 5 gallon (hopefully Friday). It's unfiltered and no heater, but those things will be in his 5 gallon. I am going to do daily water changes until I get that tank.

These pictures don't do him justice, and I can't ever seem to get that steel blue shimmer on camera.

Upgraded to a 5 gallon with LED lights and a filter the other day! He made a big bubble nest already.

Zach loves movement. If I wave at him from my bed, he's at the glass looking at me. He comes to the front to see what's going on if there is activity in the room. But sudden movement up close frighten him.
I hope to order the last few things for his tank soon!

Got the money to order the remaining things for Zach's tank! He currently looks fabulous in his 5 gallon with black substrate, black background, a terracotta pot (that he has no idea what to do with lol), and a couple Marimos. I'll be ordering a heater, thermometer, driftwood, and an Anubias nana petite.
