A new Addition

I had being secrectly planning a tank and looking for a betta for a while now. The tank isn't completely finished yet, but I absolutely fell in love with this boy. He came from Jodi-Lea at fishchick aquatics. He went up for auction over the weekend and I just had to bid on him, spent a little more than I was planning on but he is absolutely beautiful. My pictures don't do him justice.

 

I'm still deciding on a name, I'm thinking of Morado or Niji but I'm not certain yet, I know when I find the right name it will jump out at me like he did himself.

This was my first time ever having a fish shipped to me, and I was a nervous wreck! But Jodi packaged him really well, triple bagged, lots of newspaper to stop the bag moving and a nice heatpack to keep him warm, and he seems to be settling in now. I'm still a bit nervous that he has been stressed but I'm letting him chill out now

Yep. what a relief it must have been to finaly get him, and ensure that everyting was safe. He's beautiful. He reminds me of a child's blueberry snowcone if you're still looking for name inspiration.  :wub:

He is such a pretty specimen. Congratulations on the safe new arrival. I was a nervous wreck when being sent fish, too! And then nervous once I got them in my tanks, because if they died then it was all on me and not the shipper :scared

He is very handsome and his colour is striking! Great purchase IMO :D

Thanks! I'm glad everyone loves him as much as I do!

Lovely fish! He looks so happy in his nice big planted tank, too. :)

Oh that's even better :D I need someone to help me move my goldfish tank, it's only 6x2x2 so not too hard...:rofl

 

Congratulations on your new arrival.  Your betta is gorgeous.  You captured his beauty in your photo's with his colors and fins. :wub:  :heart   I love him.

Thanks so much! By the way everyone, i think I've decided on a name, it's completely different to anything i had in mind but it just came to me when I was watching him...

 

So he is Solomon
