Blue Male

How did you choose the name for your betta?

When he gets mad and flares his gills, he becomes round like a blueberry.

Is there a story behind your betta – when were you first united?

I was at petco shopping for a betta fish and I couldn’t find any in the cups but as i was walking out of the store I saw blueberry in a tank with other fish and he looked so happy and healthy in the tank I decided to buy him.

What makes your betta special to you?

He has a shrimp kill count of at least 15, its pretty fun watching the shrimp swim around the tank cleaning the sand, there were a few shrimp he got along with for maybe 3 months before I came back to my dorm room and he was chasing them around the tank and nipping at them. Ghost shrimp in my area are 10 for 2 dollars, I think it’s worth it but I’m done for now. My new plants keep the tank much cleaner.
