I've been told that he's a half-moon, but someone else said that he's a rosetail, because his tail doesn't come all of the way unfurled when he flares. Whatever he is, he's GORGEOUS - and a princess ;)

Is he a half moon?

Kelly! You're SWEET! Thank you! *blushes* If you come back as a Betta, we'll be happy to take care of you! But please bear in mind - there *may* be some gender confusion *giggle* Hopefully you won't have to live in an awful little cup until we find you!

when I leave this earth, I wanna come back as a little Betta that lives with your daughter !!
From Kelly100 on 08/17/12
WOW !!! This is the most beautifulest little aquarium I think I've EVER SEEN !!!
From Chesh on 08/11/12
Thanks, I'll let daughter know you said so, Shimzie is *TECHNICALLY* her fish :) It's a 25w Cascade by Penn-Plax, programmable, but I wish it was smaller! It worked out perfectly with the tank/setup, so it can't be seen :)

How many watts is the heater you use? And I lovee the name!! LOL
From Chesh on 07/06/12
DUDE! I saw it come up at the top of the screen too - I was excited! Don't they just randomly put up ALL of the tanks, though? Depending on where on the site you are? *shrug* Still neat to see it up there!

HAHAHA! Simon... can you imagine what a Betta's fins would look like in an altered state? Beautiful enough sober! ;) Thanks, Termie! I'm surprised at the great response I've had to such a PLASTIC tank, lol! Very, very kind!
