Def digging the Buddha statue/black gravel combo. Also digging that he lives in here now and not glorified shot glass.

5.5 gal. Little 10 gal rated filter with a bunch of used media... sponges bio max. He's been super active since we put him in. Looks absolutely stunning. I'll work on getting a cleaner closeup pic.

I like the color of that betta. It can be hard to get a good picture of a betta, can't it? One technique is to get a mirror with a handle and place it close to a side of the tank. The betta will see their reflection more clearly than in the glass and will often swim to the mirror, spread their fins and stop moving for a few seconds. Don't do it for too long or often because it will cause stress to the fish.

I'll give it a shot unc. And yup Def a challenge for a good pic. His head is a crazy color pattern of white a pink sort of. Very cool. My daughter hand picked him out of about 50 individuals.
