Betta Name Tags!

The other day I decided to create some name tag/decorations to put on my fish tanks. Each name tag has the fish (or snail, or frogs, etc.) name, a small picture resembling the fish, and some extra illustration that exemplifies a certain quality of that betta or a picture that has something to do with their name!

I then visited my parent's house and used my dad's laminator to make these name tags 100% water proof so they wouldn't get ruined during water changes and such. I think they are a cute way to decorate the outside of a tank and also might be a nice way to memorialize a betta who has passed.

I just wanted to share some pictures of me creating these name tags and then the final products. I put a lot of detail into these so they do take a little amount of time, but they're fun to make!

If anyone was interested in these name tags I would love to maybe take some commissions and I could mail you your own personalized name tags for your fish and other aquatic pets. I would probably charge $2-3 to offset the cost of the laminating plastic and depending on how large and how detailed you would want your name tag to be. I could also add color, although I prefer drawing in black ink usually. I just used a bit of scotch tape to attach these to the side of the tank.

If anyone is interested let me know and I can do a quick rough sketch for you in pencil and send a picture. If you like the sketch I will go ahead and make you a name tag! Just make sure to give me some information like what size you want your name tag to be, your betta's name, your betta's personality/quirks, any specific images or symbols you want added to the name tag, the style of calligraphy you want used, whether you want color or not, etc. :D

I will soon be making a few more of these for my other bettas Jack and Pepper as well as my ADF once she finally gets a name. I might also make some to put on my snake and lizard tanks in the future!

YinYang's tank and name tag are so beautiful! Not to mention the fish himself, but, well, you already know what I think of him :P

I like the name Sake for a fish, too.
