    Thanks! :) Got him from aquabid.com
    He's a "Copper Red Dragon" (the coloring) Halfmoon Betta and the seller/breeder is Rattanpornbetta. Giggity.


    This is the pic from the auction... before his travels in a tiny little bag better suited to carrying small amounts of marijuana. lol

    Eventually he's going in to this planted tank i just set up last week. Currently waiting for it to cycle. Will take about 4 weeks. So for now he'll go into a plain old fishbowl. The tank is a CAD Lights 4g Mini Freshwater. Not a bad little setup. Even has a big bank of LED lights.

    Damn, D...you've got to aquascape MY betta cube :shock: Gorgeous fish for a gorgeous tank! Damn you.

    Hubby's been sitting hypnotized by my crowntail I've never seen him take to a fish so fast. He even feeds him. Mine makes a healthy pile of bubbles. Hubby wants to breed him and keep all the babies :shock: LOL

    haha, thanks! Never aquascaped a planted tank before but i love those Amano style tanks. There's some INSANE ones out there.
    I seriously though about breeding. If I could find the time to figure out a really smooth setup, i might give it a shot. It's nearly impossible to find amazing breeders here in the states. Those folks in Thailand have this stuff nailed!
