    So I am adopting a betta from my university. He will be going into a cycled divided tank with another betta after two mouths in a 3.5gallon tank. I don't have a name for him yet. Please help me name him. I'm a biology major so I want a nerdy biology related name for him.

    Pictures of him will be helpful.

    I like Linnaeous. Darwin or Agassiz would be cool too. And by cool, I meant nerdy.

    I like Hooke. Ya know like fish hooko_O, but really after Robert Hooke. Vesalius sounds nerdy/cool too :D

    Whats the name of the other fish? Darwin and Agassiz would be cool because then they could flare at each other. lol

    My other three bettas are called Neptune, Einstein, and Tesla (like the tesla coil and not the car)

    Darwin is cute. I was thinking about naming him something like Taq (comes from Taq polymerase which we use in the lab in PCR reactions to amplify DNA) but my friend thinks that's a stupid name. I was also thinking ribose like the sugar.

    Oooh, I like Tesla. If I actually named my bettas, one would be Cousteau.(But I'm not going to jinx things)

    The only fish I name are my bettas. My platys don't get names.

    Just some ideas :)
    Mitosis, Genus, Phylum, Darwin, Charles

    Types of minerals, planets, and last names of scientists. Einstein, Edison, Pluto, Copernicus, Malachite, and Obsidian are all kind of nerdy.
  15. KimberlyGFishlore VIPMember

    but Edison and Tesla would fight.

    Done! Taq and SYBR!!!:p

    Einstien, watson, name him after the university.

    will he eventually get his own tank? 3.5 is small enough, I don't think there's room to divide it and put two fish in there...
