I know this isn't the best photo ever, but I love my new fishie!
Mankato Sunil is a male betta fish: Mankato being Native American for "Blue Earth" and Sunil being Sanskrit for "Deep Dark Blue"... couldn't decide which I liked better. He's still a bit dull in color due to being stressed out from the car-ride home, but give him a few days and he'll be shiny and sparkly again.
Don't mind the non-Jessie border... I was experimenting.
I have nooo idea. Poor little guy died years ago when we had a storm that knocked out our power for 4 days in the middle of winter; I couldn't keep him warm enough I don't know enough about betas to know what type he was, either.
