    He's a beauty alright, so very dramatic.

    The new betta has been named Crais and has settled in very well. He's even started to turn from black to blue. I tried to get some photos, but he wasn't all that interested in posing.

    ^_^ Gorgeous. Still looks like a DT with that long dorsal... Maybe he has some DT in him? I've got a CT/DT mix who has a spiky, split tail

    The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

    You might be right. Bettas here are rarely differentiated by type, but are mainly VTs, occasionally you'll find some CTs. I'll keep an eye on him as he grows and see what he turns out as.

    And Crais keeps getting bluer and bluer. Looking at the photos from when I first got him home I can't believe that his fins have grown so much! I'm starting to think that he is a DT. He's a lovely active, friendly fish, who dances so much when he sees me that I can't get a clear photo of him, so here's a video. Sorry about the quality, I took it on my phone. He really shows himself off at about the 25 second mark

    I would still swear up, down, sideways, and diagonally that he's a double tail. He certainly looks like one... Are you sure he isn't?

    He could well be a double tail. If so he'd be the first I've seen around here. The one really good fish shop does sometimes have Crown tails or Plakats, but generally it's only Veiltails. The place I got this guy from, though they're very good on keeping their tanks clean, just have any bettas labelled 'Fighting Fish', and don't know any more than that. If he does turn out to be a DT I might consider breeding.

    He hasn't built any bubblenests yet. I'm assuming that the change in colour from black to bright blue is probably some kind of fish puberty, so maybe he'll start building soon.

    I think he did turn out to be a DT.

    Unfortunately he died last week. One day he was his usual self, demanding food and showing off, the next day I couldn't find him. I eventually spotted him hiding under some driftwood hardly breathing. After a couple of days of 50%WCs he passed away. I have no idea what happened, there were no signs of illness or injury, he was in fantastic condition and his cardinal tetra tankmate is behaving as normal.

    Much as I love them I'm very reluctant to get another betta. I don't know if I can take this 'lives a year if you're lucky' thing any more. I don't know what to do with my tank now, other than use it as a grow-out tank for my Apistos (which just will not stop breeding).

    Really sorry about your betta. :( I gave up on them too for the same reason. They always died on me after a couple of months.

    Off topic, but are you sure that's an oto in the photo from the first post? Looks like a Corydoras pygmaeus to me. LFS sometimes get them mixed up.
