After much exhaustive searching = ^ _ ^ =

I decided to call it a day trying to find a Velvet Green Betta or any Betta that was mildly green in apearance , the majority of the betta's I have seen have all been blue with red or just Blue or Red even.

Today I saw a Yellow betta which did make me open my eyes but on closer inspection his fins showed signs of sickly damage , I did ask the assistant if he had any treatment he could add but he was a rather dopey looking chap.

I could have bought the Yellow betta but there was no guarantee it would recover let alone survive even if I had purchased it and aded treatments.

He said thats how they were when they arrived , unlike the dead one that I with much struggling freed from the tight shelf , broiling in it's own colour and falling apart ,I almost made myself sick telling him to remove it.

= ^ _ ^ =

So in the end I gave up on my search for betta's Green and wnet for this Maroon one with Silver blue dusting.

I decided to call him Brunel , after the the Engineer who built the Great Western broad guage railways, the Great Eastern steam ship and many a fantastic bridge.

Brunel is settling in nicely now.

There was a bit of a problem with the Black Widow tetra's chasing him around , but then he started chasing them around and showing off his frill.

he's taken his place at the top of the shop now

Hoping to get a new tank and unit with cupboard soon , I just need to keep my eye out for one.

Merlin,not to be mean...but there is a thread about signatures in the "water cooler" part.And I think by the standards your signature is too big.I know it is a little distracting.

The oddest colored betta I've ever seen was bright orange and yellow, very pretty I wanted him, and they were on sale, but I knew if I came home with another animal I'd be in trouble 83
