They are both as yet un-named. I'm just going to let the names come to me as I get to know their little personalities. The white one is an elephant ear betta and the black/turquoise/red one was labeled a Halfmoon doubletail (not so sure about the Halfmoon part). The second one does not want to be photographed while the white one just loves coming up to me when I'm by the tank and posing for me.

Beauties!! And yes, the white one, what a little cutie, posing!!

Mine would flare at himself some. He was always looking at his reflection. I don't think he got too worked up though!

I looked on the betta wiki and I think you might be right, thanks. That stinks because I read about bettas before I got some and specifically didn't get a rosetail because of the problems with their fins, but I'd never heard about feathertails. I turned off the bubbler to slow the current for him and he seems a little more perky now, hopefully he won't bite his fins.

Crowntails are the best in my opinion.

This was my first betta. I named him cookies because he is all blue like the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street. Sadly he ate abit of a dead fish who was rotten and died a few days after.

Will be looking to get another betta since they are just so beautiful with their tails flowing in the water. Though I have an affinity to only blue and black ones. Does anyone else feel like they have a specific colour preference?
