He is in my little QT. I will be moving him to his own 15 gallon.

His name is Atreyu. His scales look like metal in the light! I picked him because he was so alert, flaring at my hand on his cup.

Thank you! He is very engaged by his environment. I am so happy. Our first betta was like this...then two that weren't.

Thanks! I can't wait to post a good pic of him well-lit. I haven't been able to capture it yet.

Here you can see how his scales change based on light.
I can't wait for his fin to heal.
