How did you choose the name for your betta?

When I bought him, it was snowing on the first day of May. His colors reminded me of fire and ice, so I named him after the northern star, Polaris.

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

I saw him laying at the bottom of a cup at Petsmart. He was lethargic and had horrible ammonia burns on his gills. He looked at me with sad and pleading eyes, and I knew then I had to take him home.

What makes your betta special to you?

He is a joy to be around and watch. Po is always happy and exploring his home. He’s the sweetest betta I’ve ever met, and he only ever flares to show off and has never acted aggressively. He and I share a bond like I’ve never had before with a betta.

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

He lives in a planted 5.5g with two snails (shrimp coming soon!).
