Hey guys!

Lets go back to about several months ago. My mom said that once we get back from our trip, I could get a betta. I couldn't wait! Now, to about 2 days ago, after some reminding and nudging, we went to the bit pet store. There were so many beautiful bettas! It was such a hard decision. I couldn't walk out with one betta without feeling bad for the rest. After looking at the many wonderful bettas, I decided on not one, but two! So, without further a do, meet Opal and Luna!

Here is Opal! I named him after a white gem, called the opal.

Questions on him:
-Can you guys tell what kind of fin type he has? He was labeled as a "Premium Male Platinum".
-He has cloudy eye, will a few water changes help?

Here is Luna! I named her because she was labeled as "Female Halfmoon" so she was named Luna after the moon!
*I don't have any pics of her in her tank yet, she is a shy one!

Ironically I鈥檓 pretty sure that Opal is an opal betta, all though I鈥檓 not an expert.

If you can get him to flair we can better tell his fin type.

A word of caution, though, no one knows why but platinum Betta are more prone to fin biting than other colors. For that reason, I would suggest keeping his water tinted with either IAL or plain Rooibos Tea. Both have calming as well as antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Both are lovely but Luna's a real looker. We don't often see a Mustard Gas with the pattern as originally developed. Most are morphs.

He is a very calm betta and I can't get him to flair, lol.

Thank you. I am very protective over these two, so I will post right away if I notice any fin-biting.

How do I get IAL's to color my water? I added one in but it won't color the water. I also am ordering many more plants to add to his tank.

Thank you. Luna did really catch my eye at the pet store. 馃槉
