So I had a break in between my radiology, and large animal nursing lecture tonight, so a classmate and I decided to go and check out the local petco(which I had never been to before). I immediately went over to the bettas and started looking when she picked one up and said "Ooh he looks cool. Get him!" I looked at what she had and I was floored, he's gorgeous! I looked through their entire shelf and they had numerous awesome looking doubletails, but this guy looked the best. He's like a pink/purple marble butterfly.
Since she helped me pick him out, I told her she had to help me name him, so we came up with...Mango!

Wtf each time I go to petco or petsmart, they never have any pretty butterfly's or even Dt's for sell. Im so jealous. Awesome betta though.

The petco that I went to had at least 7 doubletails, all of which looked great. I'm debating going back and getting another one...lol

I have three DTs, all from my petco. They always have a pretty awesome selection and it good to see that my favorite tail type is being more available. :] he's a beauty

Thanks, he's already gotten some dark streaking going on in his caudal fins. I can't quite tell if it's black or purple though.
