So, I went to the LFS yesterday with my partner and decided to look at the fish (as is usual practice)

I saw a betta in a tank that was so crowded that the betta was stressed and almost constantly flaring and chasing the other fish. Some of them were 4-5 times his size!

Didn't even have to discuss it with my partner, he went and grabbed a heater and I got the lady to bag the betta for me.

He's now home in my spare 3 gallon tank and he was so hungry! It makes me wonder if he'd actually been getting food with that lot.

He's a beautiful navy and royal blue crowntail with red pectoral (i think) fins.

He is yet to be named.

Excuse the quality of the pictures. My camera is rubbish.

I will try to get a better picture later.

Thank you. :) I'm a softie really. I just couldn't leave him there like that.

I got a better picture. Of course a camera never does colour justice.

Thank you. I hope he is happier. He's certainly not shy! ^_^ I've given him plenty of places to hide but he still sticks around the front of the tank watching what's happening.

I know 3 gallons isn't ideal but it's a darn sight better than that shop.

He's still no-name/new guy.

Just can't seem to settle in a name.

Hi everyone I'm said partner :)

He now has a name..... Norman lol

Things will be changing for him soon, over the next month I'm sorting a 6g planted tank but I'll start a new thread for that :)
