How did you choose the name for your betta?

The fish store that I bought him from had all of their Bettas named already. I filled out a little “adoption form” that said I was the new proud owner of Douglas the fish. The name just never changed.

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

I wasn’t looking for another betta that day. My friend and I took a road trip to a bigger city to look at all their fish stores. Our small town only had one. We went into one that was mostly saltwater, but in the back they had a large betta wall. And there he was. I have a special love for mustard gas coloring and I couldn’t leave him there. He was a tiny little fellow back then, but I fell in love. I filled out a cute little adoption form, and took him home.

What makes your betta special to you?

Douglas is a stunning fish. His fins are the largest of any betta I have. He is a really docile, curious little guy and loves to zoom around his aquarium and investigate all of his plants and tank mates.
