I have sorta forgotten to tell you guys about my new acquisitions! I fished this male(and his wife, babies in the 10 gallon) from a female betta tank. He was really being aggresive and was quite colorful compared to the drabber female bettas. So I decided that he must be a male and bought him($3.00), along with an extra. He has noname(just like me lol..so he's the real nonamethefish for now). Hope you enjoy these pics(many more available, just to large to upload onto Centralpets).

Hope you like em!

I think insanely jealous fits the bill here.

Can I have him? Wink

The reds and greens (or is it blue) in such a nice looking fish!

Congratulations, noname. Beautiful fish. And you're getting quite handy with the camera, too!

Cool find noname! How did you get him to flare, did you use a mirror or does he flare at everything? Anyway, not bad for 3 bucks! Smile

Shocked Wow! Very Happy All I can find at my LFS are sad little guys in cups. No fancy ones, no yellow or white, just red and blue solids. Confused

Nice! Very Happy

Thanks for all the comments! Smile

Psy: He's red with a blue sheen over his scales, and his fins are bluish. He looks very cool under subdued lighting.

2la: I think its just the camera, or the fish.... Wink

Brobro: Thanks!

Slackra: Already done! I bred him to what appears to be a CT female betta...probably same color as he is. Since short fin is a recessive trait, these fish will exhibit the genes the female carries, but if crossed to another plakat or to a sibling, they will yield fish like him.

Dawn: He was flaring at a mirror during the pic....since the female is beside him, he flares at her all the time.

Skyskong:He is red and blue...LOL

Once again...thanks for the great comments!
