Kanji by greendragontears Kanji by greendragontears
My new betta! Kanji! 
He is a Halfmoon Double Tail
Colors: Teal with the light on, Green with sunlight in the room, with red spots
Hes prettier in person :)

He is the 5th betta and its been a few years since I had one.

Saw Kanji at the petstore 4 days ago and just fell in LOVE with his spark of life and colors. I brought him home and followed every betta care instructions I could find on Dr. Google to make sure Kanji lives a nice, long, life. (since the last 3 bettas didn't :( and my husband titled me the "Fish Killer" because they didn't live as long as they could)
I think the trouble I had with the last 3 bettas, they lived in a bowl. My first betta lived in a filter tank meant for bettas (just like this tank) and he lived his full life, whereas, the last three barely made it to two years.

Wish me luck! I have a good strong feeling Kanji will be with us for a long time! He loves showing off his tail and enjoys swimming around. Next time I clean his tank, I'll add something in there for him to hide in and for his first birthday with us, a bigger tank (it was on the spot when getting him, didn't know if the next size up would fit my desk so I got the 1gal) And my cats don't seem interested in him at all. (I was scared at first, thus hes in a room where I can lock the cats out when im not around.) They've seen him, caught them watching him swim yesterday, but no interest in trying to get him.

Love the name, it really works for a betta. :)

I love DTs, I have two currently and had just lost one yesterday who was a DTHM like your little guy.

If you still need some help with your wet pet try Bettafish.com, it is a great site full of experienced betta keepers. Plus you can show off your betta! lol

He is beautiful. ^^

I had good luck with a tank heater, since it got really cold in my house. They like it kinda warm, 76-82F. Enjoy him! :D
