Happy Beta

Introducing... Diego.
Diego came for Maria's birthday... a gift from us to her.
This handsome Beta fish lives in a glass canister, in the kitchen,
and he has a small snail friend we call Gary.
Gary is also handsome.
Diego is quiet, unassuming,
but he can get riled up when he catches sight of his reflection.
He is fishy, swimmy, and naturally aquatic.

Hello, Diego,
you handsome, swimmy, fishy, aquatic friend.
Welcome.

Happy Beta~
Get it?
It's funny, 'cause it's pun-y!

Happy Beta to you!
Happy Beta to you!
Happy Beta, dear Maria,
Happy Beta to you!

  1. We had a 'Gary' snail once too. Sadly, he passed away, but he was very good at cleaning the tank during his short life.

  2. Diego is beautiful! I love these fish, we call them Fighting Fish. They are so pretty. My SIL had one in a simple glass vase on her kitchen counter that lived for 5 years! (which I thought was a pretty long time)
    Happy Birthday Maria!

    Thanks for your kind words on my blog today, I appreciated it very much :)
