My poor fishy Geranium, Gerry for short, died a couple of weeks ago 😦
He lived a good life with his snowman buddy.
The tank was empty of life, so Matt bought me a new friend, Boom.
Boom is a female Crown Beta fish. I got a girl because they are more suitable for my small tank.
She was the first to catch my eye at the pet store. She changes color depending on the light! Such a charming fish~
She was hiding from the light and ducked behind the rocks.
I need to go buy a plant for her home this week!
PS- If you’re wondering how I named her…. it was a weird process of looking up Korean translations LOL I wanted her to have the same soft and charming feeling that she gives off…
Long story short: ‘goldfish’ is ‘금붕어’ and Boong is ugly, but when you say ‘Boom’ in a Korea accent, like Park Bom, it sounds pretty.
And I think it’s funny that she is the tiniest and has such a big name 😀
