New Betta- name suggestions? 10 Gallon Tank

  1. Zoreta Member Member

    My 'new' cup baby rescue- although I'm not sure I can call him a rescue, since he was in such good condition when I got him. Probably a new shipment- he is pretty docile and hasn't bothered the cories except a little stalking on day one, but I have a spare tank in case things get ugly. I've had him for a week now, with no issues.

    Also: why does it show two videos when I only have one code?

    He's red, blue and green though XD

    Thanks- one of those cases where I was just going to get filter carbon refills and he called to me from across the aisle- with his shiny blue lips and tinyness and adorableness. It was like he was hypnotizing me with the way he 'shivers' his tail and make the colors dance... HYPNOTIZING BETTA!!!
    Protect your tanks, the betta are invading!

    Jo is pretty cool, it means rescue in Japanese but sounds casual :)

    lol... the colors on my computer are off. Azerbaijan has a flag with those colors, so it's still patriotic, just not us... :;laughing

    Thanks for fixing the video Shawnie :)

    Thanks for the name suggestions everyone- I briefly considered Christo (after the man who did the environmental art), but it doesn't him quite right. Hrm, decisions decisions lol

    He reminds me of the spanish bull fighter, how about matador or mateo?

    I dont want to get into the whole spanish bull fighting morality here and being part spanish yes I have been to a bull fight and no they arent as inhumane as they are made out to be.

    I liked when you were talking about a Hypnotising betta.

    How about Hypnoze? Or Hypnotic? :)

    Hmmm...along the lines of hypnotic...Sigmond Freud is the only famous hypnotist I know of...maybe you could call him Siggy???

    :drool:Oh, he's beautiful!!! I like aristocratic sounding names. You can put lord, duke, count, etc. in front of almost any name to make it sound elegant enough for such a pretty boy. That is if you're into that sort of thing.

    After much deliberation, the current name seems to be Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte- because he is small and flashy. They name may change yet again, but for now, Napoleon.
