I'll just give you all my pets.

The Bettas:

Yuuki because I love that name, and it means white or snow in Japanese and he has some white. I tried out a few names before like Neo but they never stuck.

Ryu because it means beloved one, and its an awesome name.

The Goldfish

Beau because me and my friends decided it, and it is really cute.

The Cory catfish

It was Akio which is a Japanese name, but when she layed eggs I had to make it Kia because she couldn't have a silly boy name! But beau ate all of her eggs. O.e

The Pleco

Echo because it fits him and it is Echo the Pleco!

The 3 Snails

Yori because he just looks like one

Blu because he is a blue snail

Toma because, well, I just like it.

The parakeets

Skyler because her colors look the the sky. My mom calls her that as a nickname.

Junior because he looks like my 1st parakeet that died.

The chinchillas

Mo because it just fits his spunky and amazing personality

Lego because my brother got to name him though he is still mine

The dog

Chili because it is the name he came with and it SOOO fits him.

The cat

Bella because she came with it and she had already had her name changed when the first family that had her got rid of her. Her old old name was Gracie so we call her Bella Gracie.

*2 Bettas (for now RIP Ryu) *2 Goldfish *9 Guppies *1 Gourami *2 Chinchillas *2 Budgies *2 Dwarf Frogs *1 Dog *1 Cat *2 Hermit Crabs *2 3gs *1 10g *1 Pond *2 2gs

Current Betta:

Roranicus Pondicus aka Rory - Pink&Red butterfly HM boy - Rory is named after a character from Doctor Who. When I first got him he acted like a little bad a**. From time to time he also called Nemo by my family. He like to look at his filter, like he try to stop it like Nemo did.

Past Betta:

Pirate - Blue CT Boy - I got him during my last year of High school. I named after the schools mascot, a pirate. Plus the school color was blue.

Kiwi - Blue&Green VT Boy - When I got him he seem all green, so I named after the fruit. Later he showed some blue, but I still kept the name.

Eeyore - Blue&Purple VT Boy - This little guy was my first Betta. His color remind me of the character Eeyore. Oddly he a very dull and gloomy guy.

Willy- named him after a previous Betta
Show off- kept flaring when I first got him
Pop eye- only has one eye
Dash- will not stay still for more than 2 seconds
Hope- got him when my grandma got sick and I named him hope , for my grandma
And those are all the names of my bettas

16 gallon - 11 neon tetras, 6 Pygmy cories, 6 kuhli loaches and 1 male Betta
15 gallon - 1 male Betta, 3 platies, and 5 guppies
6 gallon - 1 male Betta

All planted tanks

In My Opinion a Betta deserves nothing smaller than a 5 gallon tank

Neros - root of the Ancient Greek name Nereus, basically means 'wet one.' Neros is so chill and smooth, that it just seemed to fit him, and wet one is a perfect description of a fish!

Xerxes - Greek version of the name, Ahasuerus, which means lion-king or warrior-king. I wanted artaxerex, but my wife and I compromised on Xerxes. This guy is so fiesty, it's crazy. The name fit perfectly. He is like a lion, and I'm pretty sure he would fight a lion.
