Veiltail male

How did you choose the name for your betta?

Goldie was bought for my kindergarten class. They named him Goldie because they thought he was a gold fish!

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

Goldie was very social. Always swimming to greet me each morning, when I returned from work. He even watched Yankee baseball with me. The Yankees were his favourite team. He also loved to watch me do yoga beside his tank.

What makes your betta special to you?

I had never had a betta before. In the store I loved his red and blue colouring. He was very active and swam and looked at me.

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

He loved resting on his leaf  hammock and attacking the gravel vacuum when I was cleaning. He almost died last May when I put a moss ball in his tank but I was able to save him. Unfortunately. On December 9th 2016 I woke up to find he had passed. I had him for 1 year and 7 months. He was the awesomest fish ever
