We have a new addition to our little family: Rupert the Betta!
I picked him up shortly after Harvey, my previous pet betta, passed away over the holiday break. Sad? Yes. But Harvey lived to reach the ripe old age of 5 (which I think roughly translates to “old man” in fish years …)
I love Rupert’s bright blue color – And seriously, how could you not love that face?
If you were wondering, I name my bettas after characters actor Jimmy Stewart has played or movies he starred in. “Rupert” is Stewart’s character in Hitchcock’s “Rope”. My other betta is named Tigo, which is short for “Vertigo” (another Hitchcock movie).
