Snorkel is our fish. He is a male beta, and he lives in an apothecary jar on the end table in our living room.
Snorkel has one trick. He jumps on command. I know, I know - you don't really think it's possible to train a fish to do tricks, but we have. He jumps when he's hungry or if he thinks we might be getting ready to feed him (much in the same way that Maggie sits in front of us with those puppy-dog eyes begging for food).

And Snorkel got his name because Steven and I went snorkeling on our honeymoon and loved it. There were lots of beautiful fish in the Caribbean waters. And Snorkel is just a very cute name for a fish.
