I got my first halfmoon betta!! =d
 
before i actuallly start my post, i have to say i've haven't been on in waaaaaaaay too long and i miss this site and i love it. i've been redculously bogged down with school work. like...not sleeping for 84 straight hours bogged down. idunno. whatever.

ANYWAY


ivan, my male plakat, died on monday. it was very very sad. i think he was old because he just slowly declined it was upsetting =(.
so today two friends and i went to petco because i was getting depressed about having an empty fully-cycled tank sitting on my bureau with no pretty fish to watch inside it.
and i found my new halfmoon, Billy!

he's alot greener then he looks in the pictures...and i couldnt get a picture of his tail fully spread out cos he moves sooo fast. he's also really little. which is awesome cos its gonna be fun watching him grow and his colors develop.

now it's time for....pictures! lots and lots of pictures!

I am so sorry to hear about Ivan.:-( I know he will be missed. I'm glad to hear about Billy. He's GORGEOUS! In that one pic, he looks blue and red. I would love to have a halfmoon because they are so pretty. Good luck with Billy and welcome back to FishForum.:-)

He's beautiful!!!

thanks guys =D


even though hes currently skittish and afraid of me, i think once he warms up and because all cozy in his new home he'll be a pretty crazy acting fish. he's very active as long as im two feet or more away from his tank hahaha.

hasn't eaten yet, but its only been a day so i dont expect him to. i give him a pellet at feeding time and let him stare at it then swim away so that he'll get accustomed to it better

oh and i got a great picture today:
