PART 9: Living As a Betta Should
I'd been in my new home a few days, getting blood worm treats and little plants, when my feeder came to me and said something that sounded like Neon. "Are you talking to me? I'm Blaze, not Neon." I said to it. The feeder said "Neon" A few more times and I realized I'm getting a new name! I'm Neon! I flared and made my fins look as big as I could and got a gulp of air.
Now I've been in this home a few weeks, occasionaly I have to endure water changes, but life is pretty good. I still wonder what happened to Vanilla, Blood, Coal, and all my other siblings, but I guess I'll never know. They hopefully found good homes like me too. My feeder recently removed the bubbling thingy and put in something that makes lots more bubbles and a slight annoying current, but keeps the water clean.
I remember it like it was just yesterday, and still remember the words Vanilla told me that helped me to survive all the chaos and start a new life. "So long as we have hope and don't give it up, then we might make it through all this. Without hope, there is nothing."
If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows
