How did you choose the name for your betta?

I was driving home from Petco on Black Friday. He reminded me of a superhero with that large red “cape” of his. Many options went though my mind: Sidekick, Superman, Chaos, and Aqua Man are some of the choices that I remember. I decided that his hero name would be Super Fish.

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

I got Super Fish 50% off at Petco because of their Black Friday sale. It wasn’t even that busy there.

What makes your betta special to you?

Super Fish constantly patrols the twenty gallon tank, scouting for any evil doers and making sure his citizens are safe. Some of these citizens include albino corydoras, amano shrimp, and nerite snails. He makes sure the city/tank is safe for the citizens by “flying” into the alleyways himself to make sure nothing bad is in there. Super Fish has a big responsibility protecting the citizens from harms way. However, due to his heavy “cape”, he is sometimes seen resting/sleeping on the job. If he isn’t out patroling the waters, he is laying on one of the leaves in his city. Hopefully Super Fish’s citizen don’t start a riot because of that. 🙂

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

Super Fish is probably my “fanciest” betta fish I’ve kept so far. He is definitely by first Double Tail. Despite what it shows in the picture, he actually has a blueish green shine to him. The only villain he’s fighting is the dreaded fin rot, but he was battling that when I got him.
