I haven't looked at this thread in awhile. Looked at each page. It's amazing how many betta variations there are. I had my first Bettas 25 years ago and all I could find we're blue and red back then

I've been meaning to post a few pictures of my betta for a while, but I can never get him to stop moving around for a good pic. I got a few today. Please ignore the algae lol, recently put a stronger light over the tank and I just got some nerites in there to help clear it up.





I had a hard time getting a clear shot of the dorsal fin, but it has a black/white striped patter on it that is very nice.

This baby was a joy to have and one of the only betas I'd ever been able to put with GUPPIES! Sadly we lost all, but a few guppies in a BAD columnaris outbreak.

I've got a beta tank set up. Just waiting for the right betta!

Sorry for your loss Mr.Betta, if you're willing to spend the $ on shipping, aquabid.com has a large section for bettas (all the variations: vail tail, delta, crowntail, plakat, etc), surf it for a bit you'll find something you like. I got my Xerxes (seen at top of this page) from there. As long as you buy from someone that knows how to keep and ship the bettas they breed, the fish will be in better shape than those fish-in-a-cup you see at lfs and some __marts.

My Petsmart Betta that I bought out of sympathy on sale. Glad he pulled through! What a weird fish.

Here's a before and after of my Halfmoon I got from PetSmart. He's in a planted 10g and fed New Life Spectrum, frozen bloodworms, daphnia and brine shrimp. After a month on this diet, he's colored up real nice for me.

Everyone always gets a kick out of his moustache.

My favorite thing about buying petco/petsmart bettas is the transformation they make when in a good set up! Looking great!

It's usually better to get more than 3 to spread aggression. Several sorority owners on pt (I'm not one, just pawing on what I read) say 5 should be the minimum and having a lot of line of sight break up/hiding spots/lots of plants really helps.

Agh Makes sense.... But the more the merrier!
But I think I'll stick to my Honey gourami just to try something new..... Maybe later though
