Old Dog 59 Well he is getting along very nicely. He is coming out of his shell ( no pun intended) He started patrolling his tank this afternoon and responding to the lid of his tank being knocked on, He now comes up for food no matter where he is in the tank. He is also coming up and flaring in front of the tank when it is those times to be fed. I guess it doesn't take long for chow hounds to realize where and when food will be delivered.

I've tried switching up his diet but he knows what flake food is and that is what he sticks too. I've tried frozen Blood worms and Brine shrimp but he wants nothing to do with it. Cal my big blue marble is the only betta I have that will eat frozen food. But then again the rest of the fish in the community tank just love the frozen.

Fritz likes attention and every time my wife or I walk by he is always at the front of the tank and loves being talked to. Just goes to show ya, ya don't have to be expensive to be loved.

Old Dog 59 Well the new guy has a name finally. My grand son sent a text and said his sister says His name is Fritz. So My wife and I Who Love our Grand Kids very much (Except when they have overstayed their visit. LOL You can only take so much People. Lol) So my wife liked it and I really don't care. (its's better than the names I have been calling him LOL) So Fritz it is. He doesn't answer to it yet but he will. He got use to me calling him Little !*&#. so he'll get use to anything.

Phish Head WOW congrats on the stunner and what a heart warming story [emoji7]

I love that irridesant changeable blue/green color.

I've said this before, but I think a fish will reveal its perfect name as you get to know it....;)

Old Dog 59 Thank you guys I tied to get Charles by my wife but it didn't fly (or swim) I'll try Frank but that's the problem, He is only green when the flash on my camera goes off.. The rest of the time he is blue with a green iridescence. It is only when the flash goes off he turns green. LOL could be the flash scares him.

He is starting to settle in and the silk plants are just not going to stay in this tank. I can't stand fake plants. I'm going to Erie this week so I'll take a look up there at the place I usually by my plants.

Girlwithmanyeyes Wow! He's beautiful! I would name him Frank - short for Frankenstein since he's green and all or maybe Shrek?

Old Dog 59 Yep I need to come up with a better name for him. I was thinking Charles??? Yes, No It's better than Lucky.

As for my friend, he is a great friend. I showed him the pictures of all my boys that I have bee keeping. He can't get over Cal. Even though I didn't purchase him from him, he thought Cal was a fantastic find . He said he wishes he could breed Betta like that. He has some really great looking stock but nothing with giant genes. He's going to look into getting a good breeding pair and see what he can do.

He asked when I was going to start breeding. I told him that wasn't going to happen. I stopped with Two sons and a Daughter. LOL His answer was A man who knows his limits I like that. LOL
