    I recently had a betta tank spot open up due to sad circumstances (not disease)

    I was at my LFS and this guy was one of the 3 left. I couldn’t not... so I got a new betta man that needs a name! I’m happy to have a plakat. The store is called critter jungle and sells show betta culls. Apparently this guy is a galaxy koi cull

    He needs a name!! I didnt get a chance to see how many fish were in the original shipment but this guy was at critter jungle for 2 weeks and still looks this pretty!

    Also look how much java moss I got for 5 CAD... it’s the size of my fist

    Looks like a peppermint candy cane!

  3. Addie42Well Known MemberMember

    Lol I thought that was your name suggestion at first

  4. Momgoose56Well Known MemberMember

    It COULD be lol! Pepper for short! He kind of looks like a borlatti (cranberry) bean too! borlotti beans.jpg

  5. Addie42Well Known MemberMember

    Lol I kind of like Borlatti
    that’s cute... I’ll keep that in mind
    Reminds me of foo the flowerhorn naming his betta Kartoffel (sweet potato)

    Nice score on plant and fish fronts!! I would pay $5 for that moss clump in a heartbeat. :)

    I must be hungry...:rolleyes:
  8. Addie42Well Known MemberMember

    Yeah it’s crazy for the moss!! This on the rock isn’t even all of it. I put some in my pea puffer tank and some in my betta tank and it looks like a lot. I can’t believe that this store has such high quality bettas this one and 2 similar were the only boys left

    This is another betta I saw at critter jungle and really wanted before I had room for a new betta. I hope whoever got this one WORSHIPS it
    I really like the one I got, it’s pretty much exactly what I wanted. And he looks like he has smeared lipstick

    I checked out their site. That's a great store! They do a lot with rescues too. I like supporting stores that do that.

    Me too, I liked how the guy who sold me the fish kind of went on a rant about plakats being good pets... I really appreciated them talking to me. At the cash they asked me what my tank size was... it’s good to care (I look like I’m maybe 16 as context.... workers often ignore me in fish stores thinking I won’t buy anything lol)

    It’s definitely a really great store for sure. I’m happy knowing some care went into breeding my new betta and that their store actually cares about fish

    This is a vid of him swimming if anyone wants to see. I don’t have many people on my Snapchat that would appreciate this as much as you guys lol

    What about Minty? He looks like one of those red and white mints
  12. Momgoose56Well Known MemberMember

    He's so HAPPY to be stretching his fins! Gorgeous plakat!
  13. Addie42Well Known MemberMember

    I kind of have a thing for people names
    here are the pets I have named so far: Leo (cat), Florence (goldfish), Ricardo (pea puffer), Sabrina (goldfish) ,

    Perhaps its just the red and black coloration, but Hachiman was a Japanese deity of war and warriors since bettas are of Asian descent?
  15. bitseriouslyWell Known MemberMember

    Archie. (Cause he’s a redhead).
  16. TheSaraBreeNew MemberMember

    He looks like a Hubert to me. :)

    Just a few ideas.:)
  18. Addie42Well Known MemberMember

    I think I like Mushu, like the dragon from mulan
    I’m going to see if it sticks
    By all means please keep suggesting names, you never know how many ppl u don’t like until you try to name something :;bananababy

    It’s really cool how his dragon scales vary in lighting. They seem to glow when the tank lights are off.
