EJ is special because he's sassy. He puts the fight in 'fighting fish'. He has this angry little expression all the time, as if to say "Put your finger in here. I dare you.". Whenever I feed him by hand, he'll go straight in to bite my fingers before he even nibbles on the food. And it's not even playful nipping. He grabs on, then twists and flails as if he's trying to maul me. Despite him being angry and sassy, he's also cute and adorable. The first thing I do when I wake up is wave at my tank and say "Mornin' EJ" and he zooms up to the glass and wiggles around excitedly.
The first time I saw him he was in the tank next to all the female fighters. He was displaying like "Heyyy, ladies ;3". Then he saw me and he was all, "Who are you supposed to be :I", but I knew I had to take him home. He has a real attitude, and he's grumpy as anything, but I couldn't have a better fish~
