Phoenix<-R.I.P.

Sophia<-R.I.P.

Dead Sunlight- He bears a magenta-red head that blends into the mettalic purple of his body.

Fallen Leaves- His marbling color, an orangish-black, reminds me of Autumn leaves falling from trees.

If you have read, you probably know my type of namestyle now...

Fun thread!

Alpha, formerly Fishbert - "Fishy" for short - all our red veiltails have been named Fishie, Fishy, Fishee....so we started calling him Fishy like usual but he's turning out to be a big guy so I gave him a bigger name. But now my husband wants to change his name to Alpha, after I showed him this story:
http://www.alaskadiamondwillow.com/s...lpha_betta.htm

Wispy - He was all fin & bones when he joined us about a week ago. He looks like a wisp of purple smoke. He's still very thin but is looking a lot better.

Beta - We just received him yesterday (another gift from his mom.... I told her that after this one, I now have no more room for another betta). He's a dark royal blue VT. I don't know what else to call him.

Moondance - My first Aquabid fish! And the only betta I ever got to pick out myself!! He's a light gold halfmoon and looks like the moon dancing when he swims/does his betta wiggle.

Caesar: My first Aquabid Betta, he is currently my avatar.
King: Really original, because he is a King Betta
Apollo: I don't know, it just suits him.
Blade: He is a black orchid, with an attitude.
Jaden: Again, I don't know. I really like that name.
Red: He is a Red CT BF.
Nova: My only dragon scale. I really like his name. He had red fins, but he had a run in with some tetras. Let's say I don't like tetras anymore.
Nala and Simba: Both yellow VTs
Tanya: It means Princess, and she was my only VT for a while.
Queeny: Same color as my King, had to have a Queen.
Crimson: My unknown fish that is a Red color.
Noname: Still need a name for my female CT. Hee hee

Bettas: Rose, Sophia, Addie, Ghost, Buster, Holt, Aidan, and Mercutio!
Cassandra

Talking Lawl.

When I was little I had a beta that I thought was a male. I had some tetras at the time and I named them after the stars of The Golden Girls. The tetras' names were Dorathy, Blanch, and Rose. I decided that I would name my beta Sophia. The funny thing is that I was only around three when I named the fish!

My Betas:

Phoenix<-R.I.P.

Sophia<-R.I.P.
