Doubletail/crown tail, black/red/blue/purple, male

How did you choose the name for your betta?

I have an Irish/Scottish name theme going on with all of my pets. It just seemed fitting for him.

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

I’d been waiting since late November 2015 to get back into fish keeping. I knew that around January that I wanted a betta, at least a 5.5 heated and filtered tank. in march, I received late birthday money from back home and started cycling a tank the same day. A few weeks later, while on lunch break from work with my tank ready for it’s new friend, I saw Rourke and knew he was meant to be mine.

What makes your betta special to you?

He comes up to the glass the second I turn my kitchen light on or walk in the room. He’s very responsive to my voice when I call his name too!

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

He’s a giant butt but he’s pretty passive sharing his tank with a female mystery snail.
