Thank you so much! I appreciate the sentiment. I must say I'm kind of surprised by the kind comments I'm getting on this tank! You guys are so SWEET!
I actually didn't pick the betta to match, it was a happy accident! My daughter's favorite color is purple, which I've been told is hard to find in a chain-store betta. Unfortunately, PetSmart was my best option - and they keep their poor fish in cups treated with methylene blue. So no matter how I tried, there was no way that I could really tell what color the fish inside was until I got it home. I chose the healthiest fish I could find. . . and crossed my fingers that she would like it. What a happy surprise to find a fish that, though not purple, was a perfect match! His fins are really pretty, and they do shimmer blue with red highlights, which appears purple to the eye. . . so, Princess ShimmerBlue by a very, very happy accident is perfectly matched to his decor. I wouldn't have it any other way! LOL!
