    He's a beautiful example RCA - however I voted no purely because I have my heart set on a purple one so once my 30L tank is cycled that's what I'll be looking for.

    I said no too, again he is stunning but I do like them with colour :D

    However, having said that, he would look lovely with green plants behind him :)

    How many bettas do you have RCA?

    I voted no simply because I am not particularly partial to dragon bettas.   He is a nice looking betta though.

    Lol, tempting but I am meant to be downsizing tanks as I have a little one along the way, but if he is there tomorrow perhaps it was meant to be and 1 more small tank can't hurt can it? [​IMG]

    Don't have a third option.
    I didn't get mine soley on coloration. Had my eye on an orange VT. It was more attitude, and how he interacted with me. So got a red CT.

    I voted no.
     
    I had a betta that colour only mine was a superdelta. He went blind, something I've since learned can happen to dragons. With mine, the white scaling grew over his eyes; by the time he died, one eye was completely covered and the other had just a tiny bit of black left for him to see out of. I've sworn never to get another dragon.
     
     
    Edit - must learn to spell

    I voted NO because my gourami would kill him. Mines not a proper home at all.
     
    He's very lovely though. :)

    ROFL @ Talltree! Your locations get longer and more bizarre by the day!
    In your last post here, there were a couple of lines for the post then loads of space because of the profile location! lol

    Well you are right!  resistance is indeed futile!! I went back to the lfs but they didn't have what I wanted so I couldn't leave empty handed could I? he was still there [​IMG]  so he came home with me and I got some plants too, wisteria and Java fern, he has a 95l tank all to himself! well him and a few apple snails plus a baby bristlenose [​IMG] I've called him Ralph, he's very feisty! settled down immediately, flared at his reflection and chased the bristlenose into it's tunnel lol!
