Here is my very first betta, we got him a few days ago.
I'm pretty sure he is a Halfmoon.. correct me if I'm wrong!

He's not a Crowntail- He's a butterfly Halfmoon, and looks like a rosetail at that =P He's gorgeous.

Well I knew I came to the right place to figure out what he is, & Thank you he is a sure stunner!

Are you able to change the name of a thread?

I don't think so. You can ask one of the mods to though, they might be able to not 100% sure.

If you really wanna know what he is, he a Blue butterfly rosetail. Witch is a really nice find since you got him from a local fish store.

Add:

Be careful when using drift wood in a betta tank. It can tear their fins up pretty bad. I would take some pantyhose and rub it against the drift wood and if it tears it, then you need to sand it down. Also you should add more live or silk plants to the tank as well.

Yeah I was going to have a go at some real plants, haven't had real plants in any of my aquariums before!
The drift wood is very very soft, so he will not rip his fins, but thank you for the good tip!!

Anubias, water wisteria and java ferns are always popular choices, low light, and near indestructible as far as plants go =). What kind of lighting do you have?

Cool, thanks for the suggestions, I'm not 100% sure, it is a clip on light for the type of tank I bought.
I bought the tank privately so the light didn't have a box or anything, it's probably on the lower light side

I would go with some java moss, it's a easy beginner plant to start off with. Low maintenance, also if you get a good batch of it, it's really hard to kill. Also looks really nice when you attach it to drift wood.

If she does, he might pass the marble gene on too the fry. Witch will be awesome. Most likely end with butterfly's though. I wanna make a Black Butterfly.

For Java Moss, do you need to remove the carbon out of your filter?? Or do you have to add anything extra to help with the growth?

I have not planned on spawning no, but maybe one of these days, I'd love to have little betta fry!
