Orange Betta!

So I was at my LFS two days ago and saw an orange Betta. So of course I bought him. He's beautiful. Apparently they got a whole heap in from a breeder. Anyways, here's some pics of him in his temporary home. No heater yet but it's been close to 30 degrees celsius during the day and we are lucky if it drops below 20 at night so he'll be fine for a while. He's already made a huge bubble nest.

Thank you. I'd only ever seen them in pictures. The girl at the LFS said they had about a dozen but the staff bought them all!

You have no clue how jealous I am of you!

I have been wanting an orange betta so bad. I really want an orange dalmatian, but good luck finding one of those if I can't even find a regular orange.

So, there were lots of them? Can I fly over and stay with you so I can buy one? haha

Thank you. The plant is a piece of elodea I chucked in there to make it look pretty.

Orange dalmatian? I'll have to look that one up! Hahaha. Sure, I've got a spare couch LOL. I went back yesterday and they still had 4-5 but not as bright as my guy.

Good for you getting the best looking one. He is gorgeous. Your tank is nice too, by the way.

Orange dalmatians are to die for. I saw one on aquabid.com a few months ago.
