Mortimer the Betta Fish

by Cindy Lou Bailey

Talk about steely good looks. In addition to a 360-degree wraparound design, our metal travel mugs are crafted with lightweight stainless steel - so they're pretty much indestructible. Plus, they're double-walled to keep drinks hot (or cold), fit in almost any size cup holder and are easy to clean.


A male Betta splendens
This is Mortimer (my pet Betta fish!) He is male Veil tail variation; he has extended finnage length and a non-symmetrical, drooping tail, with caudal fin rays that only split once. This beautiful tropical fish displays shades of cobalt, turquoise, violet, cerulean and touches of deep red. In a blue Veil tail, the top layer of skin cells is more concentrated with iridocytes, or iridescent pigment cells, so these cells appear as a vivid, shimmering blue.
