HM Butterfly, koi, male

How did you choose the name for your betta?

Well, for some reason his colors reminded me of my favorite childhood show – Mister Rogers – and for some reason the name just kind of suited him. He’s very sweet!

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

He was bred in Thailand and shipped to the states! I have had him since March, and I’m so happy to have him.

What makes your betta special to you?

Aside from his beauty, he is special to me because he always knows when you’re up in the morning and will come to the front of the glass looking for you. He likes to play and follow your fingers on the glass, and he will hand feed!

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

I just wanted to say that bettas are no less special than any other aquarium fish. They require weekly water changes, good quality food and enough space to thrive. Mine loves plants, so I give him plenty of plants to explore in and I hope everyone will learn more about bettas and how to properly care for them!
