Okay so here’s the deal with the title. My mom STILL can’t make up her mind on what to name her fish. I keep tellin’ her name him Mr. Lovewell, so I think she’s startin’ to lean toward that. But a lady named Rebecca who commented before suggested one that I really like and that’s Rotlich, which means readdish in German. My mom says I’m Scottish but I like the German language. 🙂 While she’s thinkin’ about the name, I snuck on the computer to show you guys some new pictures of the fish. (Golly, it’s hard to type with paws as big as mine!)
Preeettyyyy! Mom says he’s a dragonscale betta.
Could he be a feathertail betta?
AUUGHHHHHHHH!!! …..Oh geez! He scared me half to death! I thought aliens were invading! (Maybe I’ve been watching too much Twilight Zone) Hey! Maybe we oughta name him Rod Serling!
Hmmmm…you kinda get used to that scary beard after awhile….
And finally, here’s picture my mom took of the fish’s home (A 3 gallon Critter Keeper). I like water, but I wouldn’t to live in it. Sherlock said he was goin’ to liberate the fish. What’s liberate mean?
I hope ya’ll enjoyed the pictures! 🙂 Oh yeah and my mom took those pictures not me. I haven’t got the hang of gettin’ my dew claw around so I can push down on the shutter button.

On Monday the 15th, my first betta fish died. He had been suffering from dropsy, a deadly disease, for nearly a month. He was my very first fish and opened the world of aquariums to me. His name was Peach and he was a pink pastel VeilTail Betta; and the only betta I’ve ever seen who had blue eyes.
In Memory of my first betta, Peach
Upon losing my first fish, my mom took me to PetSmart to get a new one to ‘replace’ Peach. No fish can replace Peach but the aquarium seemed so empty and lifeless with only a snail inhabiting it. I ended up getting a young male Halfmoon Betta and a shrimp named John (long story about the name). So here’s some pictures of the new guy!
He’s a complete opposite of Peach; He’s shy, not aggressive, not a little pig when it comes to eating. Peach loved to eat, was very curious, and liked to chase my fingers. This little guy is curious but cautious; but he’s slowly coming out of his shell. Every time I go to his tank, I drop in one pellet. (Which means I can’t go near very often since he can’t eat a lot.) This shows him that people mean food and he’ll swim to the front looking for food when someone comes near instead of hiding.
I’m still in the process of picking a name for him so for now, we’ll call him “the new guy”. 🙂
