  • And Sam Makes 3

    Stopped at a store by my mom yesterday that sells fish in the back. Couldn't resist this little guy. They had 4 bettas in cups that were smaller than the Walmart cups. This guy was kind of the ugly duckling of the bunch and I figured the other 3 would find a home a lot faster than him. So his name is Samuel - Sam for short.

    Picture is not so clear because I just finished planting and mussed things up a bit. I don't know what kind he is, but I like him anyway .

      Thank you. The other 3 were the beautiful flowy dark blue crowntail and veiltail that most people seem to go for first.

        Is Sam a VT? From the picture he looks halfmoon lol... neat shot! And I go for the ones that go nuts with dancing in front of me when i walk by :-) so I don't go for color to much... though I have gotten lucky and found the hyper ones that are nice to look at!

          I honestly don't know what he is. I am trying to get a side shot of him with his fins out but he isn't cooperating at the moment. I didn't think he had enough "veil" to be a veiltail, but I am without a clue as far as tails and fins go so I just take other people's words for it. Whatever he is, he is a very active, likeable guy and I'm glad I brought him home.

              His bottom fin doesn't seem to be as full. But that might just be the way he is holding it.

                Try to get him to flare at the side of the tank with a mirror or something reflective and tank a video, if he moves to much, or a picture when he flaes up... normally they will spread everything to appear bigger... but I am sure you knew all that lol
