    He's pretty. Hate to burst your bubble, but he's a veiltail, not a crowntail. :)

    opps hehe I just looked where he was placed I wasnt to picky

    No worries! Didn't mean it was a bad thing that he's a veiltail, not a crowntail. Just thought you'd like to know. :)

    He is very pretty. He looks EXTREMELY similar (as in "could have come from the same spawn" o_O) to my female VT I have in my 55gal. Same fin shape, coloring...everything.

    As for names...what are you interested in? Do you want a name with meaning? A literary name? A relatively generic name? For example, I prefer naming my bettas after literary characters. Right now I have three bettas. My gray/purple/pink cambodian HMPK male is named Tanis, the half-elf lead character of the Dragonlance Chronicles books. My female VT who looks like your boy is named Kitiara, one of the human bad "guys" in the Dragonlance Chronicles. My green/black/red marble dragon HMPK male is named Dirk, after the main character of Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt novels. I also have a female GBR named Summer (also from the Clive Cussler Dirk Pitt novels), a male ryukin goldfish named Indiana Jones (Indie for short) and an adult male bristlenose pleco named Percy (from Percy Jackson and the Olympians).

    What's his personality like?
  7. I keep fishWell Known MemberMember

    he's very hyper!

    Thought of a name Flash?
  8. bassbonedivaFishlore VIPMember

    Flash is cute. It's also kind of fitting because his red fins look like a flash of fire. :)

    Flash! That's a perfect name! I love it! <3

    My little(ok BIG) has the same color scheme. Its a Multicolor pattern purple. The red and blue layers cross to create the purple coloration, but as you may have figured out, when they meet the camera flash the 2 colors split :). My favorite.
    Here she is, i found that a good top light and no flash brings out the best in them.
    Id vote on maybe an Apollo, Or something related to purple like
    solferino, amaranth, or orchis

    HA, he's your xbox buddy now! Aren't Bettas great? Congratulations!

    He is a handsome boy! Sounds like "Flash" fits him.

    EDIT: I just noticed, is he in your guppy tank or in a tank by himself? When you're done with XBox, why not update your stats? LOL!
