New Yellow CT

Recommended Posts

On the way home from benching in bettas for the Ekka, Paul and I called into a LFS to pick up some fish food. I, of course had to run straight for the bettas. I've been on the lookout for a yellow CT male to replace my boy who jumped to "freedom" not long after I bought him. He was sitting on the bottom of his tank, uncarded, stressed and a little listless. I saw past that and saw potential. I took him home, put him into my barracks, carded him and gave him a belly full of live blackworms. After a while I looked over and noticed he had coloured up and was exploring his little cubicle. I uncarded him and was rewarded with this display :D

He is a perfect match for the cT girly I want to put him with. I am determined to get a spawn of yellows one way or another!!!

He's got some serious web reduction and an intense yellow colour. Nice score - especially for a LFS find

I don't know if it is just up here, but I've been noticing the quality of LFS bettas improving. Even Pets Paradise are selling HMs, and Super Deltas. Sign of the times?

^ from what i've seen around I could agree with you - however i find it rare to see LFS manage to maintain the

'quality' of the fishes when they go up on the shelves...

:applaud: amazing score, such awesome spidery fins!

Thanks :D

Yes, I do agree with you there. If LFS took the time to card their bettas and house them appropriately the stock would last much longer. You pretty much have to get the fish as they arrive in store. There were some other bettas that I saw a week ago that have started to deteriorate from stress.

These bettas are kept in small tanks and are in relatively clean water, so half the battle is won. Just need to convince them that it isn't any extra work to card ;)

He's lovely, Jarrod. Good match. :)

I walked into my local Petbarn the other day to grab a few crickets... was a lovely surprise to see that they had their Bettas set up in a barrack, heated water and all. Much better than the 50mL thing they had previously.

Thanks Sarah. I am sure Paul thought I had lost what was left of my mind when I said I was going to buy him. He didn't look like much...

Can't speak for everyone else, but I got my first yellow CT 18 months ago. Never got him to breed and have been chasing the ever elusive yellow CT spawn ever since :D

Hey Jarrod

Good score and even better seeing as you already have a girl to go with him. I look forward to a spawn log

Cheers

He was pretty sad looking in the shop. Very washed out and wouldn't flare. I wasnt convinced he was any good.

Happy to say I was wrong mate. Good score and a great match. :-)

Thanks guys :)

@Busman, I have had plenty of sick CTs in my time to spot a stressed out one in relative good health ;)
