My Betta Fish Need Names :)

Hello, I am new to being a Betta fish owner, you may remember me from a couple of days ago, posting a thread asking for afforable options. Well, I managed to get a nice large plastic tank (similar to the kritter keepers) and it came with a divider for it, so I decided to get myself a second fish.
I am lucky in that the room temperature of my house is usually high enough that I do not have to have a heater on my fish tank. (the room gets up to 40 degrees celcius during the day (104 degrees Fahrenheit) so the water is usally warm enough as is for now, it cools down a bit for the night but the water temperature remains fairly steady.
Both the fish are looking really happy, which is great!

Anyway to the point, I was wondering if any of you had suggestions for names for these stunners.
Here are the pictures of them:


That is the new fish

And that is my first.

They've very pretty :)

But are you talking about this bowl?
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Penn-Plax-...-1-ct/10450861

If so, it's not really big enough for one Betta- much less two. A plastic bin will work just as good (they cost like 5 dollars lol) :)

Also name suggestions!

Henrique, Phillip, Treasure, Flare, Shiv

My Tanks-
5 Gallon Split:
Bleud (Blood) - VT
Tiny and Dumbo - ADFs

Reid (Reed) - CT
5 Gallon:
Penelope - Female
4.5 Gallon:
None (Hospital Tank)

RIP:

Yeah, it's definitely not one of them, it was actually a plastic tank thing that was sold with all the things for a Bearded Dragon (a type of lizard), except the lady at the pet shop sold it to me without all the optional extras, I am not sure on the size but if it is suitable for a full grown lizard I think it is for two fishies.

And those are great suggestions =)

So I have come up with names for my fish:

Steel Blue Veil Tail- Dorian (after the book character Dorian Grey), he is infatuated with his own reflection (a vain fish, who would have thought!) and he is very pretty also.

The other one- Flash, she is always scooting around the tank really fast and chasing Dorian up and down the divider, also the colours seem to shimmer on her tail. So the name suited her well!

They're beautiful. Congrats on your new buddies.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
