New Bettas

Went to the LPS 3 times in the last 5 days & twice came home with a new male Betta. 10 months ago I had no aquariums now I have 5, I think I may need an intervention. So I now have a 3rd 10g & a 5.5g.

The 10g & its inhabitant:

The new 10g I actually put side by side with another 10g & put a piece of cardboard in between so the boys wouldn't be flaring & stressing all of the time.

Thank you. I'm bad, I love Bettas but I know little of the different types; I typically buy the one that "speaks" to me. I hadn't heard of a pineapple until after I bought him. Is the pic you posted one of yours? Very pretty.

Yup, the pic is of my pineapple boy, I only found out that's what they were called when I went searching for a big gold betta. I'm a collector of sorts, I see betta pics and when I see one that I want I research it and get it, lol.
