Late Nights Results in...


A shiney new betta!!!! *crowd cheers*

I've been aching for another betta for a while now..., so why not, right? Especially when I stumble upon a handsome fellow such as this guy!


Super excited to get this guy, he will be my 1st plakat ever. I've always had a soft spot for the solid black and white ones, but this guy will also be my 1st solid black. Loving the streak of deep blue in his tail as well.

Can't wait to get em and check his personality out. See if he is friendly enough and can play nice in the community or if he gets his own solo 3g.

He'll need a good name.... *thinks*

Anywho, just wanted to share! Hopefully I can snag better pics once I have em home. Expecting him sometime mid-week.

Thanks everyone!

Hah great name suggestion Ovt, I wasn't familiar with Nero, so read up a lil.... zomg... that dude had some SERIOUS issues. Also makes that a perfect betta name, haha. I think I might just have to use that.

- Lulla, it really has been. I've def been treating myself. After this guy comes in & my final shipment of more Endlers/Guppies/Even a few Picta crosses I'll be maxed out .... Unitl I get another tank.
I am still planning another type of shrimp sometime in the near future but nothing set in stone just yet.

- Jake, you can bet on it! I can already for see hours upon hours of my trying to photograph that handsome beast! He has gotta be the nicest betta I've had the pleasure of owning, by far!

Ebay.. I looked on Aquabid but wasn't that thrilled with the US selction on there & didn't wanna hassle with a transhipper. IMO Ebay had much better quailty and selection for Bettas in the US.

He should be here today! So excited!!!!

He is beautiful. I have a CT female that could be his sister, right down to the blue in the tail. Congrats on your new fish!

Hah that's awesome JDL, got any pics of her? I'd love to see!

I don't know how you haven't yet Suzie Q, I've always had a weakness for the solid black ones.

Thanks Tracey, me too! The fun has already begun! He arrived this morning in the mail. He is still a bit shy, but otherwise healthy and acclimated like a pro. Since he is all black and I obviously suck at taking pics, my best shot of em so far...



If you'd like to know more check out my tank journal in my siggy
