cyan and white delta-tail male

How did you choose the name for your betta?

Firstly, I love Assassin’s Creed. He seemed to know he was gorgeous and acted very flamboyant. He enjoys flaring up at anyone who looks at him wrong and trying to take him out of his tank or cleaning his tank is of the highest offence. One that he isn’t afraid to show you his displeasure about. Not only is he a gorgeous opalescent white, but he has bright red gills when he flares and red splatters on him making him pull off the ‘assassin’ look.

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

He was specially ordered in by an aquarium that I am particularly fond of as a ‘mystery betta fish’. In fact, originally I passed him up. But I couldn’t bring myself not to get him and went to have another look at him. He ended up coming home and becoming my pride and joy.

What makes your betta special to you?

His personality and how interactive he is. He’s incredibly quirky, knows he is the best of the best and feels the need to kill his pellets before they can be eaten. But most importantly he is a great companion, amazing fun to watch and care for. Its wonderful the way that he swims up to greet me and anyone else who walks into my room.

Is there anything else you would like to add about your betta?

He lives in a 9L fully filtered and heated tank with silk plants, he has just had his tank re-decorated to offer more hiding spots and something new to explore which has left him incredibly active and happy. There is more bubble nests than I have seen the entire time I have had him. He is always hungry and intrigued by what game or movie is playing on my computer screen which he quite often watches.
