I named by male betta Rusty due to his vibrant red color which he loves to show off when his tank light is on.

I picked sushi after the young girl who helped me pick him. I went into the store after my other betta died. The girl was very young and just liked looking at the bettas. When I told her mine just died she spent about an hour helping me find the most perfect and healthiest young fish. She was great. She told me that they had rescued a betta but he didn't make it. So... Cowboy became Sushi.

My boys named Celestial, whenever I hear the word Celestial I always think of space and the beautiful looking galaxies and when I look at Celestial my fish I see that in him

"arguably" we are the most intellectual creature that's ever walked on planet earth. So how come, then that this so called intellectual being is destroying it only home?- Jane Goodall my hero

I named my newest boy Penfield, because he's solid orange, which is one of my university's colors. My university was founded in Penfield, Georgia.

I normally just call Sigmund Archibald by his first name, but Sigmund comes from Sigmund Freud, and Archibald just sounds good with it.

My previous bettas were Apollo and Acrimony. Apollo is from mythology, and Acrimony describes fighting fish pretty well.

My white double tail halfmoon is named Yue because it means moon in Chinese. My balck crowntail is named Raven because his fins look a bit like feathers.
