Bowser comes home...

After my depressing bout of shrimp genocide I decided not to get any more at the current time. So I returned them to the store and since they didn't have any shrimp left I got a cash refund and bought a betta. I have everything I needed for the set-up, but I picked up a 10 watt heater since my 7.5 wasn't cutting it in a 1g. Now the temp is 82F and he's loving it!! He's probably never been so happy He's been working on a bubble nest all day for me : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVMct9nCdQU
He was labeled a Crowntail but I think there's some combtail in there, compared to some of the other CT bettas there.
I didn't really intend on getting another betta (and especially since Lakitu is sick!) but my sister was gone in to actually look for one (she ended up getting 2) and so I was "forced" to look too
Anyways, meet Bowser!! My new little friend <3

Thanks He's a stunner for sure! Do you know anything about the combtail variety? I know it's a CT mixed with other tail types.

I think he looks great! From what I understand, CTs are hard to get here. The label will say CT but they're really not. He's really pretty.

I've been researching bettas and I'm really close to buying one. I can't wait!

OOOOO Good luck!! But there's something that occurs when you decide to get 1... A bug infects your system and you start collecting supplies for another betta, and another, and anther!!
I love them. Lakitu is VT and they're so precious ^.^
I can't wait to see it when you get it! They really are great little friends
Bowser's bloat has subsided this morning (yay!) and Lakitu is off the cappa leaf (for now, at least) so when I come home from school they're getting a feed of bloodworms!! Fun times

You're right ^.^ I had this fish and another true CT picked out to eeny meeny miny moe. The other was a apricot color perhaps cambodian bc he had darker fins. He was bigger and gorgeous And also the pick of my boyfriend. I chose Bowser ultimately bc I had the name picked out months ago (so he needed to look fierce and fiery) and his tail was differnt than the other CT's and because he was smaller so I knew he was younger
Critter, I'd love to see your bettas!
