Ziggy Stardust is my new Jaws. Not as mean, but his tail is almost as bad as Jaws was

I just realized I never mentioned my betta's name! His name is August. I have some more pictures of his journey in my albums. :)

How did you come up with the name of August?

And for everyone else watching, you asked for it!

Lol Shaina! Looks like a typical female guppy to me :P

August is named after an Observer in the show Fringe. All of my bettas are named after that show and X-Files, but I didn't have one named after an Observer yet and August was the first one I though of (September and December are other Observer names). He also is orange, and makes me think of fall and so August fits into that description too...haha. :)

She's a common/fancy cross, and her back is severely crooked. She may even be sterile.

However, she is my absolute favorite out of all of them (read as, the only guppy that I like), and she's next to impossible to kill. My fiance threw her into my goldfish tank, where she survived 60 degree temps for 2 months, before we found her, and decided that she's tough as nails and gets to live out her days (Read THAT as, I made my fiance let me keep her in his tank).

She's not the prettiest guppy out there, but that's the point of this contest. The "ugly" ones need to be loved too, they need homes, safety, shelter, and care. If we only kept the prettiest of them all, we'd be missing out on some of the coolest fish out there. She was my fiance's "appearance cull", and I fell in love with her for her toughness.

Don Quixote was the ugliest, most pathetic fish on that shelf, and he's so handsome now, if I'd have passed him up for something that looked nicer then, I wouldn't have this beautiful fella with the Man from La Mancha personality, he takes on GIANTS!

Beauty is not only something we can see.
