I don't know what to name my new beta

  1. Sarah73 Fishlore VIP Member

    Okay so I got yet another beta! He is in my 10gal tank with my fry, ghost shrimp and snails. He likes to chase the fry every once in a while, but never nips. He also loves to flash his fins at me when I get near(not in an aggressive way). Here is the problem. I don't know what I should call him.

    Wow, that's a lot of fry in the tank with him. Hope the bioload isn't too much and he won't be stressed out by them.

    What about something simple, like Bert?

    Yea I know:( I want to get rid of some, but no store will take any. They "aren't" allowed.

    You should advertise them on Craigslist and with your local fish clubs through Facebook. In the meantime, I'd rehome your female livebearers so you don't get more.

    A question about the plants

    What is the water plant that is in your tank? It looks a lot like what I had in my guppy tank when I was a kid.

    Oh, yes. Your question. How 'bout "Sukarno" or "Bob".

    His colors remind me of those rocket pops. Call him Rocket Pop!

    Lol comet

    Hehe I know it doesn't make much sense, but it makes sense to me... What I was thinking is a comet while the sky is still Blue out, it probably doesn't make sense... It works in my head . :p

    Omg! I just read the previous post where you mention that nobody said Patriot! That was the first word that came to mind when I looked at that beautiful betta!

    I like to sick with mythical god names( I used to have a poseidon(RIP:( ), but I currently have an awesome little guy named Hercules! Id that's not your thing, go off of his personality or give him an untraditional fish name (those are always awesome!)

    Yea!!!! I love him! I also have him in with a baby female. Go ahead say, "you can't do that." And I'll say, " she wasn't getting to the food fast enough in the sorority tank, so I moved her and she is happy as can be with my unknown beta name lol. She is also his girlfriend ;)"
