The betta thread on the old forum was really cool, so I thought I'd revive it!
The more pics you have, the better! :D

Enigma: Bought as a female, had a great debate whether he was male or female, finally decided he was female, added a couple of other "females", and found some rather large bubble nests the next day. Now confirmed he's male :)
This is actually an old pic, but he rarely flares these days, so I don't have a more recent flaring pic!

And a more recent pic. The flash makes him look green, but he still looks blue like in the first pic:


Pixel: Bought as female, but had a pretty good hunch he was male (and he is). He was so tiny when I got him! He's grown quite a lot now.
Baby picture of him:

More recent vid of him flaring:


Mango: One of the "females" I bought to put with Enigma, but also a male. He recently injured himself on something (my best guess is the lid of the tank), so now he's got a wonky jaw and stubby ventral fin, but it doesn't seem to affect him.



Rosemary: The other female I got. She's actually female :p She's got a "lucky fin", like Nemo ^_^ Her left pectoral fin is about half the normal size. It doesn't slow her down a bit, and I didn't even notice it until I'd had her for a couple of weeks!

Shows her lovely colours:


And my most recent addition, Marmaduke. My very first veiltail betta. He's a big boy, so I suspect that he's already a couple years old, but I just fell in love with his colours. He's sort of a "dirty" orange dalmatian.

Shows his spots:

I got pics of all 8 of mine that I will post soon.

I call this HMPK my little pitbull- He's small/stocky and mean as hell. The only time he ever stops flaring is when he's getting fed.

Here is a link to my Betta thread for pictures of my fish...
http://www.bcaquaria.com/forum/showthread.php?t=40

but I'll post some different ones here so it doesn't get too repetitive...

Riel - If only his dorsal was turned around in this shot!




Sidney when I first got him with finrot. He is much better now. He was a bit stressed in this shot.


Ponyo in his waiting area as I change his water.

So that's where that one went... almost got him yesterday , but didn't. Went back to get him today to replace the one I lost last night and he was gone. He is very beautiful , he was a super delta if I'm not mistaken, glad to see you guys got him. I lucked out and found this one today :) Have to take better pix tonight

Nice! Sorry to hear about Dry Bones :( My first betta, Morbo, died around Christmas too.


Nice Photos! BETTA MANIA is ending next weekend but not before one more shipment. STAY TUNED!
Ack! Stop making me jealous! Looks like I'm going to get down to the coast in June though. I am SO stopping at IPU!

Some really cool bettas posted!

Diztrbd1!! Yours looks purple!! Very nice :)
thanks, he definitely has some purple in him. If I get him in the right light he is loaded with colors. He's so active I can barely get a good pic of him, might do a video and post it later. Henrik is gorgeous too, glad I didn't get him & you guys did.

There are some absolutely beautiful Betta's on this post, thanks for sharing everyone
