Need a name for "Rainbow Fish"

I have a pretty HMDT that I've been calling "the Rainbow Fish" since he has so many colors, but I'm not thrilled with the name. Anyone have any other suggestions? His tail reminds me of a peacock's. (and no, he doesn't live in a cup, I just haven't gotten around to taking any more pictures of him since I brought him home in that cup)

My first instinct was Aurora (after the Aurora Borealis) but that's kind of girly. How about shortening Borealis into Boris?

Lilly - pretty white female. She was the smallest betta I have ever seen at PetSmart. Barely an inch long!

Oooh, Donna, I do like those ideas (Aurora and Boris). I don't think Aurora is too girly (better than "Rainbow Fish"), and it's not like he's gonna care. After all, my son named the one in my avitar "Starburst" and calls him "Bursty". I like yours' name Skittles, too!

Thanks! The one in my avatar is Skittles, he belongs to my 9yr old. She thought he looked like the colours of the candy.
