Professor Plum is one of my eight betta fish. I have had Professor Plum
for a year and a half now. He was named Professor Plum because he is a
beautiful purple plum color, and he lives in my office at the University
where I work. I felt it was a fitting name since I work with professors
Professor Plum likes to stare at the students as I advise them. They, in
turn, ask questions about him - what kind of fish is he, doesn't he need
an air filter, can't he have a friend in the bowl with him. Not only do
the students get an education in Engineering, they also learn about
betta fish, how to care for them, and what fun pets they can be. So he
is special not just to me, but to the many students Professor Plum has influenced.
