    Betta Chat
    Hello everyone! This is my new betta! I was just curious what his coloring is called. Does he look like he will marble? His container said Halfmoon Betta but his fin is not a 180 degree spread? Does that mean he is a delta tail? Also his eyes are a little bit popped out, is that popeye...

    Betta Pictures
    I showed some pictures of takumi I figured I could do the same with adelburn! He is as mean as ever, but then again that's compared to takumi who I feel is a bit overly friendly. But whatever. We had an incident with his tail a while ago so it's not what it used to be :/ BUT I am getting better...

    This is my yellow crow tail Mr. Orange. I got him at Walmart (I never buy fish from there but he was one of 3 who were the only ones left alive that day). He may not have the best finnage but he's got a unique personality (fishonality?) and he's the only yellow betta I've ever seen in person...

  16. Breedable Vieltail? Pic Heavy.

    Breeding Betta Fish
    I have a male yellow vieltail that I would love to maybe breed in the future, I've been doing a lot of research and was wondering what everyone thought of him. My main concern is that he's a veiltail and would have to be pretty top notch for people to even consider taking in his fry. Anyhow...
