Male Marble Crowntail

How did you choose the name for your betta?

A protagonist from one of my favorite book series by Brandon Sanderson… something about the name and character seemed to fit the fish. Debated a lot of names, and then it came down to that or Szeth, but I know a Seth whom I don’t particularly like, so Kaladin won.

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

Wife and niece have been getting fish off aquabid from specific breeders and I finally gave in and moved my nano fish into a community tank, freeing up my Spec V… re-scaped that and added RCS whom Kaladin follows around… they seem to get along for now, will relocate them if need be later.

Ended up getting Kal off aquabid from a breeder due to his coloring.

What makes your betta special to you?

Haven’t had a betta in a long time, since all the ones I ever had were rather listless… seeing his coloration (for now) and watching video clips of his personality … i was sold. I love the look of him and the personality, though his exploration side tends to scare me when he finds a new hiding place.

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

Hoping that his coloring stays somewhat similar, but with marbles… who knows!?
