    Hoping to have a female to go with him. I have to say, betta breeding has sure taken these fish a long way from when I was a kid. Looking for name suggestions. I have never imported a fish from so far away so keep him in your safety prayers!

    I'm sure it is just a close up photo and he is normal betta size. I have a pretty blue 'Libby' style male in my 55 gallon community tank who is just a love. This fellow will go in a planted 10 gallon until I get another large tank. I might even take him to work if the bosses don't freak. I have not bred bettas before but this one is worth a try I think if I can get a female of the same color type. BTW- his variety is called crown tail. They come in many stunning color varieties.
