Holy moly! My female koi did the same thing but yours has much more black! Mines pretty much dark orange with barely noticable black and those little blue highlights on the fins.

Beautiful fish though, Blood Vader makes me want to join the dark side, lol

20 Gallon SE Asian biotope?: 8 amano shrimp, 1 Gold Gourami, 6 Panda Corys
10 gallon: 3 Female Bettas, 3 nerite snails, 4 Emerald Green Corys

Figured I needed to show off all my new and old fish again! In order we have Reinhardt the half moon Plakat (who will never not be blinding under the blue LEDs), Sulfur the bumblebee half-moon, Dot the Female Koi, and Misty and Lana who are female Vieltails.

If you have the room for it - DO IT! Bettas are cool.

Have you succumbed to the pleasure of Multiple Tank Syndrome? I feel your pain!

True, but try to pick the healthiest looking one. Chain store fish are usually cheaper but for good reason - it's hit or miss sometimes.

I saw this one at Petco today. I came pretty close to getting him, but I'm not sure at the $20 price tag.

Looks like a good fish. Nice bright colors. No fin damage. I'd go for it.
