Show off your Betta Fish!

I can't believe no one has made this thread yet! I'd love to see some of the forum's bettas!

Here are my two (in seperate tanks obviously). One is a female koi Betta, named Dot. The picture is before this, but she just had a small bout with ammonia but seems to be recovering fine.

My other Betta is a Male Bumblebee Betta named sulfur. I just got him recently and he's doing fine. Very very active little guy.

I have Sterling, a classified silver halfmoon betta. He changes colour depending on the light that you catch him in! The pictures are posted from when I first got him, to what he looks like as of yesterday. He has some red showing up on his fins and body now, so he is likely a marble silver butterfly halfmoon handsome...colour...fish.

May all your algae get eaten, and all your scales be slimy.

A betta fish is planned for my 3rd tank which I haven't got yet. Then I will stop (I hope).

Lol go for it. I have 4 right now until my 20 gallon is done cycling. It's replacing my 10 gallon, so I can't take it down yet because the 20 isn't ready for fish.

But bettas are the best!

Thank you! I love the contrast of Sulfur myself. They come in such amazing colours.

Sterling is a picky picky eater. He will ONLY eat omega flakes, no pellets, no frozen bloodworms (unless the day after his fast), no daphnia, no dried bloodworms...

I even crushed up the pellets last night so they were essentially flakes, and he spat them right out.

So I guess it makes it easier because it's one type of food for all my fish, but holy moly the attitude. :p
