Smile Hello Fellow Betta Lovers!

I'm new to the forum and thought I'd say hello to all the other members and newbies!

As my username suggests my name Is Francesca, or Franny for short, whichever you prefer :) I've only ever owned one other Betta before but unfortunately he was victim to my ignorance and died not long after I got him. I've since done alot of research and know how to properly take care of fish now.

I bought my second Betta yesterday, a male (I'm assuming) veiltail. He's only a baby right now as you can probably see by my profile picture. He still doesn't have a name so suggestions are welcome. He's lively, a bit of a wimp and a bit "special" if you catch my drift, haha! I'd love to get to know other people on here, so feel free to add your stories, pictures etc.

Welcome to the forum! Your little guy is adorable and definitely colored up nicely after you got him and put him in his new home! I'm not really good with names either, my first betta being named Beta (so original lol). My other two are a bit more original-Merlin & Dragoon. Perhaps you can name him after something you like, or something he reminds you of? (That's how Merlin got his name-his glare-& Dragoon just fit with the theme of names).

Aww, thank you :) I do love him already, he's such a little character. Haha! It's better than having no name at all, I usually like to go by their personalities but I'm struggling to think who/ what he reminds me of. Your Betta names are great though, I especially love the name Merlin
