A Turquoise, Half Moon Male Betta Splenden

How did you choose the name for your betta?

The weekend we got Naan we had been laughing a lot at a YouTube Haiko video of Michael Rosen saying ‘naan’. We thought it would be cool if we remembered the weekend that we got him alongside something that made us laugh, so we went with that as the name. Plus we like the idea of Michael Rosen saying our betta’s name!

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

We just went to our local aquatics store and bought him, nothing fancy. We had really missed having a betta around since our previous little guy passed away, so we got a new tank set up and bought Naan to go in it.

What makes your betta special to you?

Out of all the bettas we’ve had, this guy has been the friendliest. That’s not to say the others were unfriendly, but Naan has a particularly attentive personality. It sounds strange, but sometimes you forget he’s…a fish. He’s a constant reminder of how intelligent a species bettas are.
