Fish in Crayon

Betta splendens, also known as Siamese fighting fish, are wonderful aquarium fish. Only a little over two inches long, they are huge personalities in little frames! Each one is totally unique. Some are feisty, like their commonly used name implies, but others are chill and prefer lounging on leaves rather than swim. Every one of them is interactive and highly aware of the world outside their watery sanctuaries. They perk up whenever someone comes over to see them and some are even known to watch TV!

I love making portraits of these beautiful fish.

I also adore pufferfish! Especially the dwarf puffer, Carinotetraodon travancoricus.
