Betta's first birthday

Yesterday marks the 1-year anniversary of my bringing Geist home from the pet store. Since then, he's lived in 3 different tanks and has traveled back and forth between my home and college dozens of times. He hasn't given me a bit of trouble!

I'm rather proud of myself for hitting the first year mark and still having a happy and healthy betta to greet me with a flare when I come back from class.

He's grown a lot in a year, but I didn't really notice until I looked at the photos. They speak volumes!
You can barely tell that it's the same fish.

Just thought I'd share that with you guys. <3

Happy Birthday, Geist!

Congratulations! Did his color really change that much, or is it partly from the pictures?

His color changed a lot. He was pretty much white when I saw him at the store, and you could see through his skin to his insides. That's where he got his name, actually. "Geist" means "ghost." After a few days his color started to darken up, though. He's gotten very vibrant and happy over time.
