Hong Ki The CT Betta
Posted 26 February 2012 - 02:39 PM
His name is Hong Ki, named after the lead singer of a Korean band F.T. Island. I usually do not like to name my animals after people but I just could not get his name out of my head when I was trying to think of a name for my new Betta, so that is his name. lol
As you can see his fins are badly curled. It sometimes happens with bad water quality and bad genes.
I will post more pictures tomorrow.

I have had many different colored Bettas with different tail types but this time I was looking for a common looking Betta with a little something unique. And I found him. lol
He is still somewhat reserved, but he is still active. He likes starting at my Platies in the tank next to his.

It's a shame about his fins though.
Congrats anyway, bettas are such fun, I love mine SO much.

Aww the platy fry is cute Never thought I would call a fish cute lol. By the way I love your tank. It looks very natural and spacious. Much better than the tiny cups they're kept in at the store
I have a 50g tank for my goldfish, a 29g cycling, a 14g platy tank, and Hong Ki is in a 1g. I usually have at least 2.5g for my bettas but I am just trying this one out first, some bettas like the 1g. I change the water often and do not have it cluttered so there is alot of room in there for him, he likes watching the platies in the tank next to him. lol

I think he is already changing colors, these new photos I noticed he is losing the blue/teal in his fins and getting more red.
