Bi-Color (Marble) Dragonscale Male Veiltail

How did you choose the name for your betta?

Abzû is Greek meaning ‘to know water’ or ‘ocean of wisdom’. It’s also the name of the musical score I was listening to when I was driving home with him from the pet store…

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

As I was looking at the bettas in the store, he was staring at me. I checked him out and put him back down to look at the other bettas, and he just continued to watch me. When I placed a finger up to him, he swam toward it and was very curious. It was clear that we had a connection, and that he was the one.

What makes your betta special to you?

I love how curious Abzû is about everything around him. He is constantly exploring his tank and checking everything out. When he was first placed in his tank he loved swimming around in it and meeting his tankmates.

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

Abzû lives in a 5 gallon planted tank with – 10 red cherry shrimp and a zebra nerite snail.
