New betta!

I was at petsmart today and brought this beauty home. Of all the bettas they had, this guy was alert and flared when I touched the cup. He came home to a 10 gallon all to himself.

Looks a lot like a female betta to me.

Petco has better betta stock just FYI. I was sad because I was looking at a BEAUTIFUL betta that was already in the back. So I set it down up in front. A mom walks up buys a 1 liter bowl some marbles and the beautiful betta. I was so depressed that it was going to a terrible home.

It rang up as a male. But either way, I don't care.

Yeah it does look like a female, you win though because I think the females are a couple bucks more in Petco/Petsmart. At least by me

Thanks! It does look young to me. When it flares up, the fins are pretty full.

The tank looks great. If only all bettas could live in a setup like that.

Very nice, once he'se settled in he'll just be prettier. I would however add some more plants either silk or real. You'll also want to make sure his fins can't snag on any of the driftwood.

I redid the tank a few weeks ago and almost all of my plants melted hoping they rebound. I'm keeping a close eye on his fins and the driftwood too.
