How did you choose the name for your betta?
My family and I were debating names for him on the car ride home and it came between Rodney and Wilson. I ultimately decided on Wilson because he keeps me company, much like the volleyball kept Tom Hanks company in the movie Castaway.
Is there a story behind your betta – when were you first united?
I had been thinking for a long time that I wanted a betta, and when I went to my local fish store to pick up supplies I spotted him by chance and knew that I had to take him with me. We’ve been fast friends ever since.
What makes your betta special to you?
Wilson is my first betta, and one of the friendliest fish I’ve ever owned. He has such a pleasant demeanor and has really blossomed since moving into his new 5gal tank.
Is there anything else you would like to add about your betta?
Wilson enjoys fanning out his fins and looking fancy, as well as swimming around his ceramic bridge and hiding in barrels. Truly a delight.
