In Greek mythology, the Phoenix is known for creating new life out of the ashes from its previous death. So when one woman raised a nearly dead fish back to perfect health, she new exactly what to name him. The amazing story of Phoenix the Siamese fighting fish (a.k.a. a betta fish) will inspire you to see the potential rebirth in even the most down-and-out creatures. It was a lot of work on Katie's part, but when you see the beauty Phoenix becomes, you'll realize it was well worth it.
While at her local pet store looking for dog food, Katie L. noticed one of the betta fish floating sadly at the top of its cup and took it to the store's counter.
But as she walking, she felt something slam against her hand from inside the cup. It seems the fish was not dead yet.
