Exactly!

Well, here it's a mix. Some people say beh-tuh, like me, and some say bay-tah. I still find bay-tah weird, though.


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

Well, not necessarily. Many words are spelled differently, but have the same pronunciation.

I know it's *supposed* to be pronounced "bettuh" I probably could never shake the habit of "bayduh" because that's how EVERYONE in Alabama says it and NO ONE would know what I was talking about if I said I have 4 bettuh fish. They would think I was crazy. And it sounds a little crazy in my head. So, I know it's not right but it'll be ok.
