We bought Firecracker around the 4th of July last year. He was a Petco cup baby that my daughter and I fell in love with and just had to bring home.

We lost Dracula (our other betta) around two weeks ago.

My mother came over last night and not only forgot that we had Firecracker (she actually asked me when I was going to have bettas in the house again), but when I showed her Firecracker and how much he's grown, she called him "pig nose". We've posted pics of him in the past, but they don't show him for his true beauty. His body is pretty much a solid blue/purple shade and his face has no color. It's flesh colored. If he were a horse, he would be called "bald-faced".

It was his fins we fell in love with in addition to his facial expressions. He always looks grumpy. His fins are blue and fringed in a pinkish purplish fuscia color.

Anways, I just wanted to share the lovely self-esteem issues that my mother is trying to give him. When she left, I gave him extra bloodworms to ease his broken heart. I told him he should've flared at her, but he's too much of a gentleman to do that;D

Poor Firecracker! The things our fish have to endure from ignorant, normal, humans, lol. He's beautiful! GRRR. How could anyone call him "pig nose"?

Thanks everyone! I tell him he has "grumpy face" all the time, but he's such a sweetheart. Very mellow fish. Of course, my daughter swears he flared at her tonight, but she could've been pulling my leg.
