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.

fishie! they are fun to shoot, but seems so difficult to get them still enough for a good shot without tons of light.

I know! You should see all my failed attempts :giggle: Doesn't help that I was using a sub-par point-and-shoot and very little light. Silly little bugger.

:nod: If I didn't have cats, I'd get a betta fish. My sister has one she calls Mr. Chips. Like the old movie.

Nice and colourful! We had fish years ago, but none of that ended well. :giggle:

That sucks. I usually have great luck with fish... mine only die in insane circumstances like trees falling on my apartment, exploding bellies, suicide, and falling tank ornaments :bucktooth:

Why didn't you wait a few days, and take his picture once he wasn't so stressed?

Because I had to prove that I got him for a few distrusting people :paranoid: I shall take more in a few days.

sad! I had a red betta but it died during a 3 day power outage in January. I had guppies for a while but they went belly-up last week, so I decided it was time to go back to my bettas :D

Thank you! I wish he wasn't so stressed so his colors could be a bit brighter, but I appreciate the comment. Thank you!
