    3 lovely new additions!

    On... umm... friday? yeh, friday sounds about right, me and my lovely other half Diane were out and about and by chance popped into one of the local fish shops we tend to not bother with. When we went in they had just taken delivery of their neew stock, which were still in bags. I begged the wifie in the shop (technical term) and gave her the old puppy dog eyes and she agreed to let us have the one we wanted just without a guarantee. One soon turned into three, lol.

    First off, Di spotted this little beauty, i think mainly because it was orange and you don't tend to see many orange onesup this way, if at all! She's still VERY young, hardly even an inch long and her fins are still mostly see through but from what i can tell she's a CT, we called her Mango (well she's orange!!)

    Mango:

    Then in the same bag i spotted This next one, which we called Bea. Reason being that to me, in the bag she looked like a CT dragon, and my mums a dragon, so we named her after my mum! (which i got slapped for when i told her!) Again she's still very small, about the same size as Mango and still mostly see through.

    Bea:

    Then, in a little wrinkled up bag, looking sorry for himself, i spotted this chap, who i instantly had to have! Diane Christened him Sparrow, after Captain Jack SParrow, which for some bizarre reason suits him really well! Another CT, but an incredibly coloured CT! He was a bit shy and quiet to start with but he's coming round now, which is MUCH quicker than Rodriguez did, 2 weeks he took to eat! silly fish.

    Goregous bettas i love Jack Sparrow =) looking closely at the 2nd female she doesnt look CT to me, usually they have long rays coming from the finnage but as you say still small and may grow the rays that turn her into a CT...i love them anyway! Very Happy

    Congrats

    It was really hard to get good, clear pics on them but both have very transparent rays ranching off the ends of their tails and splitting into two. It's hard enough to see with the naked eye when they turn into the light just right though, will add more pics once they grow a bit. I could be wrong though since i'm no expert and they are both so young but i'm fairly sure they are both Ct's. Either way i'm well happy we found them. Very Happy

    I would be very happy with all your choices they are beautiful, are you planning to breed or they just pets?

    Jack Sparrow would produce gorgeous babies...

    Planning to breed sparrow, yeh, not sure with which girl though, will need to wait for them to grow up a bit first, lol. Considering breeding him with a HM at some stage too!
