Crown Tail, Red, Male

How did you choose the name for your betta?

I named him after the famous male model, Fabio. I chose this name because I thought it suited his personality best…..he has a lot of confidence and a real “look at how handsome I am” attitude!

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

I got Fabio after my other Betta (Mr Miyagi) sadly died. On a whim I decided to stop at my local Pet Store and had a look at their Bettas, Fabio was alone in a tank in the back corner.

What makes your betta special to you?

Being only my second Betta, I got to see how much personality these little critters actually have because of him. He always comes to me if I’m close to the tank and sometimes he makes himself look all tough. It’s hilarious! He’s a real feisty little bugger. He LOVES Bloodworm.

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

I’m glad he is happy and doing well. Sadly I didn’t know enough about keeping Betta Fish and simply used the guidance that was given to me by the Pet Store. This is probably why I lost Mr Miyagi…. Needless to say I don’t buy from that store anymore and I’m way more educated about these special little fish. I have 3 tanks, from 250L, 100L and Fabio’s 40L hexagon tank and I can honestly say that I think I will always own Bettas in the future.
