He is special to me because the first time I saw him, I had no room for him in any of my tanks so I wasn't able to bring him home. I did however, hide him behind all of the other bettas and checked on him almost daily (because I worked there) to make sure he was ok. After about a week of torturing myself hoping that no one had taken him home in a bowl, I decided it was time to bring him home and made some space for him in my community tank until I can give him a tank of his own. The picture itself is special to me because it shows his colors pretty well and I love his reflection on the surface of the water.

Please join me in congratulating Kirrie as this month's winner of the photo of the month with her eye catching photo of her Betta Thomas!

It was a close race with several amazing entries but this one really grabbed my attention and kept me looking at it with this artistic photo!

Thanks everyone Thomas isn't as photogenic as some of my other bettas so I am really happy with this picture.
