Talking I have no self control :/

So my boyfriend and I go into our LPS today to get some frozen blood worms for his african clawed frogs, and while he is talking to the owner I decide to hop on over to the next isle where they keep their fish supplies. I thought I would be safe since they stopped selling Bettas several months ago, because their supplier was having issues keeping his fish healthy.

O.O imagine my suprise when I notice bowl after bowl of handsome boys and georgous girls. I immediatly gravitated twards this handsome little fellow twards the back. "No, you don't need another Betta" I tried to fight it. I even walked away, but just as we were about to leave my boyfriend grabs my handsome fellow, and goes to the register. ^^ I am now the very happy owner of a white VT that looks as though he could turn into a marble with his red and blue coloring (Pics asap) and he is now exploring his new 3gal Kritter keeper.

This brings my betta count to 4. :/ I have no self control and my boyfriend is only feeding my addiction. Do the have Betta annonmyous groups? I need a name for my newest fellow, any suggestions?
