Delta tail, (purplish) royal blue iridescence, male

How did you choose the name for your betta?

Ha, Prince – Purple Rain. My parents suggested the name. I added a ‘y’ at the end to make it sound cuter to me, lol.

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

I actually had a dream about a purple betta before I got him, and in the dream we went on an adventure (it was really illogical ofc but fun) and got along well, and ever since that dream I was interested in a purple betta. I went to a lfs and coincidentally, they just had a new stock of bettas, and there were purple bettas! Before this the store never had any purple bettas. I only bought him the second time I went there though, after I made plans of how to take care of him at my university dorm room.

What makes your betta special to you?

His curious personality, and intelligence, and how he swims excitedly, almost like a puppy when he sees me after I come back from classes.

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

I love him very much. 🙁
