LOL are you ready for this?


This is "Bad news Betta" I call him that because when i got him from the lfs his fins were all split up and he had black fungus on his head so thick i thought it was his natural color. He never seems to get much better...regardless of treatment. But i just havent been able to bring myself to euthing him..and he still eats and is always real interested in me and what im doing. This is the best his fungus has looked, it actually has gotten a little worse (??) its certainly not the tank conditions and ive tried everything for the little guy...

Turk that doesn't seem like he has any fungus. Not saying your wrong but maybe it is his color now. He looks fine.

See the black on his head? Looks like he needs a shave sortof? lol
It spreads to his fins on occasion as well. Its under his gills and stuff and so i think that may be why its not going away.

I see it. I guess it's just the pic. He looks like he just has a darker head. Hence why you thought it was him I guess. LOL

Wow, you guys have some awesome looking Crown-tails. I hope Corona looks that good when he gets bigger--he's still a baby.

Wild Turkey--I like the coloring of your guy. That blue looks cool with the light colored body. Don't worry about the fungus; he looks fine to me; as long as he's happy and your taking care of him is all that matters.

Here are my bettas. Sorry for the bad pics.
I don't have names for them either. One is a crowntail and the other is a female.

Nobody wanted their picture taken tonight, here's a video if my (favorite fish) plakat male, shortly after I got him. He looks the same now, only bigger and a little more robust.

Tried getting pics of my girls, only three wanted to come out (and holy cow I think my mom's been feeding them after me!) These three are double ray crowntails, the other two (not shown) are a veiltail and normal crowntail.

After that, we have my plakat's bubble nest, and an extreme close up of one of my two crowntail males.

Hey Mike, cool copper beta; I've never seen one. You must be very proud. Do you know where he was purchased at? I've been looking for one of those plus a black crown-tail.

I was thinking of Tin or Copper. He almost looks like a sheet of metal.

InvaderToast-- cool video. You have some nice looking females.

Gem I got him from a friend in England that is a Betta breeder, like
I say he's my only betta, are coppers rare in the hobby?

Copper betas are very hard to find. They are just about as rare as finding an albino beta or an all white beta.

Breeders so far are the only ones that you can get them from and they usually cost a pretty penny--no pun intended--LOL.

You should be very proud of your present and thank the person who got him for you twice over.


Oh, I almost forgot. I thought of a couple of names; if you are into Mythology. The Greek god of precious metals is Polydectes or the Latin name is Pluto, the Greek god of the sun is Apollo, the Greek god of the deep sea is Pontus and the ruler of the sea is Neptune.

Let us know what you name your friend when you decide on a name.

Thanks for the feedback, I never realised they were so hard to come by,
I did thank my friend for her gift but maybe I need to reinforce that.
More great Betta pics guys, you folks have some stunners for sure
and thanks to everyone that suggested a name for my copper, thing is I can't
decide which I like best, they are all great, maybe I should run a poll? :hmm3grin2orange:

Can they be past bettas too? I've got about 20 of them but only 2 bettas currently. :(
I've done my best to get out of the betta addiction and so far it's worked but it's so hard to resist them at the LFS!

I'll get pics up later, a little wiped right now.
