A Pirate’s Life

By | captain sea jay lewis | One Comment

Today was a little sad for me because my little pet Betta fish passed away. His name was , and he was a pirate. He was given to me as a birthday gift over two and a half years ago. He spent the first 18 months of his life living on my desk at work, and lived out his retirement for the last year on my boyfriend’s kitchen table.

I never knew a fish could have so much personality and actually interact with people until I met Captain Sea Jay. He would react whenever he saw signs of life outside his bowl. He would even jump up out of the water to try and nip our fingers! It was a cute trick. He was such a wonderful little fishy, and we will miss him so much!

Over the course of his life, Captain Sea Jay had good days and bad, and I would just like to express how grateful I am to have had the Nippyfish website and blog to consult whenever my fishy had some ailment or another. Bettas are such fun little pets, and if you have one or plan to ever get one, Nippyfish is a very useful resource for learning how to care for them so they live a long healthy life.

Happy Anniversary, Captain Sea Jay!

Today is my one-year anniversary with my pet fish, Captain Sea Jay Lewis (he’s a pirate). He was one of my birthday presents last year, and has become my favorite companion to talk to at work. Captain Sea Jay is a beautiful betta that lives in a bowl on my desk at work. He’s pretty much the coolest fish on the planet.

The captain spends his days exploring the less-than-vast expanse of decorative rocks and plastic vegetation that make up his watery habitat. He’s also very attentive to life on the other side of his glass-walled rotunda – he loves to play and chase my finger up and down and around and around his 2.5-liter bowl. He curiously comes to the surface to check out objects just out of his reach, and if something catches his interest enough (like food), he’ll jump right out of the water like a breaching shark for a bite!

To celebrate my birthday (and our anniversary), my co-workers decorated my cubicle with shiny purple and green garland and Hawaiian leis. Captain Sea Jay and I feel like we’re at a luau! We’re going to listen to Radio Margaritaville all day long and have the best person/pet fish anniversary ever.

Corinne: “Ask Captain Sea Jay!”

Amy: “Mr. Captain Sea Jay, sir, what is the terrestrial ectocology of your fish bowl?”

Corinne: “People are going to think we’re drunk. Did you two take shots in the bathroom?”

Lisa: “What are you asking my fish?”

Amy: “Captain Sea Jay is the fish passage expert. He sent me an e-mail about terrestrial ecology for fish passge in his bowl. He wants us to do a feasibility study for a habitat restoration in his fish bowl.”
