How did you choose the name for your betta?

I didn’t – he introduced himself.

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

It was a dark & stormy afternoon. I entered Petco on a quest for additional freshwater aquatic plants. Our eyes met through the distortion of a pint size to-go container. He mouthed the words, “please rescue me…and pay my bail”. Falling deeply madly in love, I decided my recently purchased, set up and cycling 5 gallon extra tall glass tank with moulded corners and hidden rear filtration system was about to have its new resident moved in. Wayne, Ted and I are currently living happily ever after along with 2 dogs, 2 cats, my husband and son. Modern family has nothin’¬†on us!

What makes your betta special to you?

His elegant poise and impeccable fashion sense.

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

Never fall for one of these creatures! They will captivate and charm you into spending your every discretionary dollar on them. They are like mermaids…too unbelievably beautiful to be real yet you must possess them.
