And WOW! Is that a king or an elephant Betta? He's beautiful.
Thank you, and that is excellent advice!
I was told Dragonscale, though they seem to be more white. So I call him what I was told he is, but who knows??? I also call him a Chameleon, because depending on his mood he can change to a emerald mossy green instead of the lovely Tanzanite blue. Sometimes he is a Dijon mustard color and darker blue too, and sometimes in between, lol
He is actually a smallish guy, less size than the normal ones you see. Though I have been tempted by several other types of Bettas, like the King!
I have a beautiful tri colored red white and blue Crowntail (never can get a good pic) Here he is making me laugh resting in a floating Cholla wood last year. Almost out of the water!!!
and my daughter has a friends brothers gorgeous Turquoise Veiltail rescued from his girlfriend break up, (GF returned love fish) used to live in a slimy yellow water lava lamp tank
/ no pic
and I just rescued a Crowntail /all black except the fins in between the rays of his tail are cobalt blue/ which I am looking for a home for locally, if there is anyone around here interested! no pic he hides a lot right now but seems to be becoming more social.
EDIT: He must be getting happier, as looked at him just now and his body is black and his fins are cobalt...maybe different color yet? lol so happy he is feeling better.
