Veil Tail, Royal blue (with some purple when he flares)

How did you choose the name for your betta?

He is a fiesty little fish and will not shy away from a finger or cleaning siphon. It made me think of Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory never giving up “his spot”.

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

I went into a Pet Smart for dog toys. I saw this little Betta bowl out of place on a end cap shelf with random non-fish items. His bowl was so dirty at first I did not think there was a fish in it. He looked awful. I could not leave him. So I went in for dog toys and came out with a Betta, tank and supplies ?

What makes your betta special to you?

I love his personality. He reminds me to slow down a bit and relax. Watching him is a definite stress reliever.

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

I am sure like most of us here, we watched our Betta come from humble beginnings in a tiny bowl. I wish I would have taken a pic of him then. It’s amazing how their color just bursts; their fins grow long and beautiful when they are in the right conditions!
