    Very pretty. Is the split tail rare or does that particular species always have split tails? I also like the name Andromeda.

    Thank you for the warm responses.

    I did not know fish like these existed, either. I thought the local Petsmart/Petco bettas were about as pretty as they get.

    The double-tail is a rare trait but many breeders breed hordes of fish with the trait to get a few babies with the trait, so it's easily acquirable.

    i had a female double tail copper from the same seller, unfortunately, she jumped out of a TINY HOLE in her lid and i found her DEAD AND DRIED UP THE NEXT MORNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    and today one of my beloved albino corydoras catfish was found dead... i buried him...

    oops, i digress.

    I have a 12-gallon tank as well, with 8 or 9 or so female betta living together. this is very common in the betta hobby, it's called a betta sorority.

    there is an insane betta forum : ultimatebettas.com, where everyone talks bettas all day

    i highly recommend investing in a few thai-imported betta to anyone. buy a few at a time, to make the $30 or so shipping cost well worth it. betta are very low maintenance fish in my opinion. (feed them twice a day, take 10 minutes each weekend for a water change, 5 minutes if you just have a couple betta).
