My roommate and I did our first photo shoot with our betta buddies and we think they turned out pretty well. It took them a bit to notice the mirror at first but they were pretty cooperative and it was a fun time.
Haha, thanks! The Petsmart and Petcos (especially) near me actually have quite a variety of colors and tails. I have been quite impressed with some of the bettas they've picked up - and resisting buying them all is really hard. x'D
