I know Jitterbug looks bigger in my pics but he's only 1 3/4 - 2" max

Fluffy had dropsy here, but his colors were bright :-(
Yours had larger fins and more blue, mine has less fin mass and is primarily orange. Keep us updated on the Betta!

Call me corny, sappy... Whatever you like, but as I turned the tank lights off just now Jitterbug was nestled right above the heater.... and I took great pleasure in knowing he was in a good warm place instead of a cup smaller than his cave...

Can we say I'm attached to him??
Love at first sight LOL

Why do a fish in cycle when you've got other tanks to steal seeded media from?

I realized later on in the day after I had written this that the filter was already cycled.... Don't worry I've only just temporarily lost my mind! I'll be okay... I think!

Jitterbug next to a quarter for size comparison!
He's still a little guy..
Wonder how old they are at that age. Any betta breeders/experts know?
