How did you choose the name for your betta?
My Girlfriend, sister and myself were sitting at my dining room table discussing what to call my Betta. My Dad came over and looked at my Betta, he said Darth Vader so I went with that.
Is there a story behind your betta – when were you first united?
I was at a LFS that opened recently and I was looking at their betta stand (Surprisingly it was filtered and heated, I’ve never seen that in a LFS before.) I looked over each betta than Darth Vader caught my eye. I stared at him for a while and he stared back. I decided I want him even though he was very expensive. So I requested if I could reserve him as I wasn’t going home for another 3 hours and bought him when I got back, I had a long talk to the employees about fish, it was a good day.
What makes your betta special to you?
I had a betta quite a while a go, his name was Lord Midnight Wigglesworth. He was a happy little fish until my dad sprayed the house to get rid of bugs and killed him. I was devastated and I didn’t want to get a new one. Well when I saw my new Betta I was drawn to him. So I bought him, I’ve grown very attached to him, he has quite a lot of personality and I’m the only person he doesn’t flare at. I think we share something.
Is there anything else you would like to add about your betta?
He’s probably the least grumpy Betta I’ve ever met.
