A really pretty fish, but that is actually a male. Females tend to be much plainer in comparision with shorter fins and often duller colors. Females when in breeding condition, also have a small white spot on their underside.
Any time any person tells me they own fish, I automatically ask them a barrage of questions. "Please tell me it is not a bowl." Do you know what the Nitrogen Cycle is?" "Do you have a filter? What kind?" "How often do you replace water?" "How many fish do you have?" etc etc. Then I continue a discussion for about 20 more minutes before I realize I tend to be the only person that cares.
• 15 gallon long: One betta fish. Still working on it. Will be a planted aquarium.
