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.
Katie took the fish home and gave it some medicine. After a few days, it started showing signs of life, but not much. Katie dutifully named it 'SadFish.'
