Welcome to the forum!

The white HMs are so, so gorgeous! I would love to have one some day.

What's your male betta like? :)

Thanks!

He is a blue veiltail rescue from walmart. I have only had him for just a few weeks now. I named him Blue because of his color and his condition when I got him. I had seen that the bettas were in pretty bad condition there. I knew I would have a hard time deciding which one to save so I sent hubby in for me. He came back with Blue. Hubby said he was the one in the worst water condition out of all the ones they had. He said when he got to the cashier to pay for him she looked at Blue and asked "is he dying?" my hubby said "I hope not" she said "why don't you take it back and pick another?" he said "no I'd rather give this one a chance" That's how BAD it was. He had very little water that was dirt brown with tons of his poo and uneaten food going bad at the bottom. Once home and I opened the lid the smell was so strong and bad that I almost gagged. It was horrible! I got him in his new little home now and his fins aren't clamped anymore like they were when I bought him and his color seems to be better. I'm so glad I saved the little guy he is certainly wonderful!

How about yours? The one in your avatar looks like Blue.

I'm happy to hear about Blue's story! Although it was terrible before you guys rescued him :( It's good to know he's in a safe place with loving parents now. :)

My first boy, which is displayed in my avatar, is a blue veiltail as well! His name is Pluto. :)

Again, welcome aboard!! Can't wait to see pictures of Blue.
