Name: Rudy
Gender: Male
Color: Red
Tail Type: Veil-tail
How Old You Were When You Got Him/Her: 4 years old
Personality:

Rudy was very relaxed and friendly and would eat from my hand. My mom would let me fish out the mosquito larvae from her plant pots in the backyard and feed them to Rudy. He absolutely loved them!

Age When Betta Died (If Dead)- 3 years old (Rough estimate. I don't remember exactly!)
Reason (If dead)- I always thought it was old age. But I was also little and didn't know anything about bettas, so I kept him in a very very tiny tank (maybe 2 pints, no more) without a heater. He lived for a couple/few years in it, though. I'm not sure :/

How Old You Were When You Got Him/Her: 14ish
Personality:

Honestly because of the conditions I kept him in, he didn't have much personallity. I knew nothing about bettas at the time, and a woman had been selling them in this flea market, in little decorative bowls with a wavy top edge and a pretty ribbon tied around the rim. It couldn't have even been 1/4th a gallon-- but the whole set up was sold, + betta, + food, + a bottle of water for a water change that was recommended after 1-3 MONTHS. I loved him, I just never thought to question what the lady was telling me.

Age When Betta Died (If Dead)- 4 months after I purchased him?
Reason (If dead)- Freezing water in basement bedroom where he was kept, ammonia build up. 8C

Name: Blizzard
Gender: Male
Color: Cellophane/white/peach
Tail Type: half moon
How Old You Were When You Got Him/Her: 41
Personality: He's a clown Very friendly to everyone. Blizzards swims nicely to any area near people to wave a fin and say hi Adjusts well to new situations. Neroticly addicted to marbles. Only flares at the color orange.

Seems I have been harboring a desire for a fish for a a long time. I have 4 happy parakeets and a wonderful husband. However I found myself trolling craigslist for something more. A dog was out of the question. A whole year went by. I then I saw Blizzard a striking white fish with happy eyes. (matured to a soft peach/pink color Just like Lion Mom's fish who's name was also Blizzard) I had to have him. I was going to have surgery so I had to wait a month. The owner waited for me and even turned down other requests.
Finally I got to bring him home. Cradled in my lap in a rubbermaid container we got to know eachother.
He came with odd pieces of aqua glass in his bowl. He got stuck twice. So I changed the glass to marbles. That is how he began his addiction to marbles.
He is in the center of the dining table. My husband an I roll marbles around during dinner time to entertain him ( and us)
I hope he lasts a long time
My dad has kept Bettas most of his life and is VERY excited that I have a new friend.

Blue-red Male VT

i got him a month ago, atm im 24yrs old. not too sure of his behaviour but i know he's an agressive eater unafraid of jumping for food. he isnt too active but often is free swimming. i got the responsibility to take care of the fish because my brother won him in a name contest at a friend's wedding. he had no real attachment to the fish, just the usual "its just a fish" mind frame. i saw it more than just a fish. im probably the only one taking care of it or having any signifigant interest in it than just a fancy blue fish.


in a .5 gal tank, now its a 1 gal tank.
