How did you choose the name for your betta?
I am a big Björk fan and I have a theme of naming all of my bettas after Björk songs and albums. He was named after one of her songs, and I chose Storm because felt like it suited him.
Is there a story behind your betta – when were you first united?
I set out to get a new fish after my last fish passed away from a tumor. I was hoping to get a plakat because I’ve never had one before, but Storm caught my eye. He was very friendly and interested in watching me, rushing to the front of his cup when I looked at him. I wanted to make sure that I made the right choice so I looked at a few other fish stores after finding him, but I kept thinking about him so I went back and bought him.
What makes your betta special to you?
His color is amazing, he looks like a different color in different lighting and in different positions. He had kind of a lavender color in his fins which I think is really neat and unique. He has a great, friendly and curious personality. He is excited to see people come up to his tank and hurries to greet them.
Is there anything else you would like to add about your betta?
Bettas are so much happier and healthier when they have space to swim around and water heated properly. I am happy to provide Storm with a loving home and proper care, and in return I get to enjoy his beautiful, shining fins and adorable personality.
