Whoa! New betta scares me now!!

I may have some ideas what to name my blue crown tail now.... But he sure freaks me out! I am online ordering food for another pet and I turned the screen(I'm in bed) to light up his tank which is right next to my bed. He was(well actually still is!) in the corner closest to me perched on his mask hide thingy staring at me ! First I'm thinking " Aww cute, he watches me while I sleep" Then I started to think " Holy Cr@p he watches me while I sleep!!" . The lyric from that creepy Sting song keeps running through my head "Every move you make..every step you take I'll be watching you" lol. While I'm laughing on the outside.. I'm legitimately freaked out now.
Now just need a creepy stalkerish name for him...or could just name him Sting..

If he's freaking you out, imagine what you must be doing to him.

You could just name him "Stalker." No, huh? LOL

Actually, I would probably name him something that is the opposite of creepy/stalkerish names. You don't want to reinforce the fear factor. "Sweet Pea," for example.

I always take forever with names! But I feel Now that I know he actually watches me in my sleep "Stalker" may be a perfect name for him. IDK will have to sleep on it... haha...that's if I can now..
I honestly feel that i don't scare him since he just kept looking at me after I turned the screen to light him up. He just sat there like "What? You don't like being watched in your bed? Why did you put me here then , eeh?" lol

He might look like he's watching you, but he might be sleeping himself :)

They don't close their eyes so sometimes it looks like they're staying at you, and it isn't until you either tap on the tank hard or you move them that they wake up.

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

Yea, my other fishies sleep looking mildly awake too... but no.. he was awake. he followed my finger. I checked lol!
Oooooh, Shadow would be funny for severa reasons.. best one is that my X-husband wanted to name our son Shadow. He didn't want to budge on that even though I did explain I was most likely giving birth to a human and in fact not a kitten or puppy lmao! Luckily a cat5 hurricane hit us and gave me a fantastic name lol. Next time he picks up the kids it would be priceless if my kids were to introduce him to Shadow.. mommys new fish mwahaha

Maybe he's the Stephen King of the Betta world.

He's planning his next book while you sleep..... Be afraid. Be very afraid.
