Crowntail Male Red/white

How did you choose the name for your betta?

Jericho, like my other bettas, are all named after a group of alpha/dominant men from a book series I read by Karen Marie Moning. Jericho is one of the main characters of the group.

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

I found Jericho at a Petsmart.. he looked absolutely terrible, laying on the bottom of the cup and his color was very light. I had wanted a red crowntail for a while and I figured I might as well see what I could do with him at this point; he was my 3rd betta so I was no newcomer to the breed. He flourished immediately within the first week and is doing very well.

What makes your betta special to you?

He was the first betta that I actually got as a “project” to nurse back to health and succeeded!

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

Jericho has a tank mate, an orange mystery snail.
