I was wondering becuase I had read a post earlier about someone naming their new betta Jupiter(God of all gods), and I know that Skippi's betta is Neptune(God of seas) and I am thinking of naming my new female Mercury(Winged Messenger) because she is really fast and swims back and forth between my ram and clown loach.

I used to have a betta named Poseidon Neptune, Neptune being the middle name.

yea, ancient mythology has a lot of great betta names. i guess we're hooked on pop culture with the names our bettas & other fish get.

I like naming fish based on their characteristics, like one of my dwarf loaches in the 28, Sid the Monkey, who always is acting like a little monkey. The other 3 dwarfs ion the 36 are always doing a syncronised act together, hence the name preformers but the Uno, Dos, Tres was just because I had counted them after wacthing a show that lots of Spanish in it(just one of those moods). And the rummy-nose tetras because they are all over the place like those pesky ducks. The skunk loach because it's brother was the good one and it is a little brat, hence Yang. Then there are my angels and my yoyo loach, the angels are named after their looks and the same with the yoyo loach.

My girl friend lays claim to the five bettas in the house. None of them have a name though. I think it is superstition with the bettas. She refers to them as livingroomfish, bahroomfish, kitchenfish... and so on you get the idea. we have three new one about 4 months now a 7 month old a 2 year old.

I've got this one, even tho I'm a newbie

MTS = Multiple Tank Syndrome

It is why I have 4 tanks on my desk right now, and would put more if I had the room!

I'm afraid it's my duty to let you know that you're infected with MTS and the Betta Bug. I'm afraid there is no known cure.

I believe we have had a Zeus at one time also and I think we have more than one Neptune at the moment and I do not think we have one but I have always thought Artemis or Diana would make lovely names for the little ladies since they were known for their beauty. (and their ability to hunt) Some of the Gods mentioned are Latin or Roman and the others are Greek or Hellenistic. Whatever the case may be I think the idea is lovely.
