I had decided the right betta would make my heart sing. I wasn't looking for a half-moon (he was marked as half-moon but he's really a delta-type), and I really wanted a VT or a Spade, but I knew I wanted a royal blue fish.
I wasn't seeing any that struck my fancy (not very pretty, nor showing any spirit), but then I saw this guy and he looked at me and danced for me. He was not at all shy, and he seemed facinated by me, as much as I was by him. His fins were beautiful, obviously not chewed up like some of the other longer-finned boys. He's not nervous -- doesn't seem to want to hide -- I just knew it was the perfect match.
So for me it was looks AND personality.
