I waited a bit to replace him, but I finally decided yesterday would be the day. I went to the pet store down the road and found another vibrant and beautiful betta to live in Sue's old home.
When I got in the car with him, I started thinking about what I would name him. Since my "boy named Sue" approach seemed to work before, as Sue lived to a ripe old age, I thought I'd stick this guy with another traditionally girly name. For some reason I thought of Nancy, but then I kept thinking about how beautiful his blue coloring was, and I thought I might want to use it somehow. I decided to take him home, get him settled, and think about it.
He's a very curious fellow, and took all afternoon investigating every nook and cranny of his tank. Then it dawned on me. I knew what his name would be.
Meet Nancy Blue, my new dishwashing buddy (since his tank is near my sink). Somehow, in a weird way, his new name suits him.
What do you guys think? :) Am I the only crazy person who names their fish? If I'm not, what do you call your fish?
