Half Moon, Pearlescent, Female

How did you choose the name for your betta?

She is the same color as a pearl – hints of blue, green and pink with a base color of white.

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

I got her for my Fiance, I went with a female because she was afraid of aggression in the tank.

What makes your betta special to you?

Being a female, she doesn’t blow bubble nests. However she also never shows any aggression whatsoever. She is very docile and doesn’t “flair” her gills like some male bettas I have had in the past. It makes for a different experience – I can truly have a peaceful community tank without worrying about one of them getting attacked.

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

I have a high level of filtration in her tank, but I point the directional nozzle of the filter directly at the glass so that it doesn’t create a strong current in the tank. During the day I also have a an air pump/ air stone running to oxygenate the water. Because of this she is literally always swimming around inside the tank – if the lights are on, she is curious about what’s happening inside (and outside) the tank! In my experience, well-filtered water makes all the difference in the activity level of a betta.
