    Vid of my betta, Midnight

    Sat here watching Midnight move around the tank for almost an hour. Now, he's gone behind the plants for a rest, lol.

    I haven't yet been able to get close to the tank with the camera, he hides. So this was taken from across the room.

    Is he the one with yellow ruffles? Seemed to be busy.

    Yes that is him, he was very busy for almost an hour, then took a long rest.

    I went to meet a woman to pick up some other fish she had posted on CL. I saw him and asked and she said she was going to flush him! So of course I took him in.

    He was in a community tank with platys It's a wonder he survived. They are fin nippers, hence his tail and fins are quite short. They should grow in nicely as he heals and settles down. I think he is a crowntail, but will have to wait and see what grows to be sure.

    He's pretty. With his shorter fins, he reminds me of a big fancy guppy. Those guys were always a favorite of mine when I had my tanks.

    Thanks Ellie, he may turn out to be a mustard gas (that is the coloration name) which is dark blue body and yellow fins with black outline on the tips of the tail and fins. Time will tell, as he regrows them. I've been told it could be 2 months before he is fully back to normal.

    I have never owned a guppy!
