Showing off...

My new betta! I had to go to the fish store due to a heater disater, and couldn't not buy this guy. (I'm a little late posting this, a week and a half has passed, I went back and all the other bettas that were there had been replaced with paler bettas. Had I waited he would have gone home with someone else.)
Edit: His fins are whole, no tears, but the edges are see through and in the pictures I just realized it looks like the see-through parts aren't there at all.

Also wanted to show off my harlequins. They aren't new, they were the first inhabitants in my tank, but their colors are new. They were so tiny when I got them, they were just silver and black. Recently the blue iridescent stripe on the sides and on their back appeared, and orangeish color appeared in their fins and in front of the black triangle. The cherry shrimp are new. The lady I got them from was really generous. I paid for 20 shrimp and when I counted there were more like 40, not counting the really tiny ones the fish got.
Please view the larger version of the second picture. You can really see the blue stripe and orange then.

I have a 20g long tank divided into 5g and 15g sections. The 5g section has the betta and the 15g section has harlequin rasboras and cherry shrimp. A couple small shrimp squeezed through the divider and promptly got eaten, so he is going to be by himself for now. That section was originally supposed to house a pair of African dwarf frogs. I still want the ADFs but I can't move the betta to the 15g section as planned without losing my shrimp. I think the betta is forcing me to buy a second tank, making this one expensive betta
