Warrior the Crowntail Betta by EmeraldRosepetal Warrior the Crowntail Betta by EmeraldRosepetal
Warrior is a 6month old male Siamese Fighting Fish (Betta Splenden). He is a black orchid crowntail and is an absolute beast of a betta!

Since I got him a few days ago, he has done nothing but flare at anything and everything. I'm not too worried about this though as he is eating very well and swimming all over his tank, so I think this is just Warrior being who he is :)

He LOOKS like a warrior, aptly named! Crowntails look pretty badass.

I have a 3 yr old Veiltail that only flares at me, he won't flare at other bettas, just me... it's so strange...

It looks like he's flaring at a flower in this. XD What's the red?

It was a silk plant I kept in his tank. He doesn't have it any more because the clear tubing of his air pump turned red! 0.0 Although I couldn't see any discolouration in the water or any signs that the plant was fading I decided to take it out in case it could possibly poison his water. The annoying thing being is that plant is supposed to be used in aquariums and yet it dyed my tubing red?! Nope, definitely not going to use it again.

Thank you :) Sometimes he can look really dark if he is hiding in his leaves in his tank, but when he comes out to see me and the light hits him he is really beautiful. That's what I was trying to capture and it's really hard! :frustrated: My other betta Genie, is far easier :D

Yea, lolz My veiltail, Colby, his fins look puny and thin. But, then I put him next to my crowntail female, Lauren. He has some of the most beautiful colors that I've seen. His fins are so full with bright color, he reminds me of a flower alot ^^ Then, I have my new Halfmoon betta, even in the pet store, if the light hit his fins juuust right, it bursted pink cotton candy colors. And his regular self is a iridescent blue with a bit of green. Its a pain to try and take a picture of >.<

I think that's why I love betta so much. They can be such amazing colours, and even when you think you know what colour they are, they can surprise you with a new sheen to their scales :D
