Bettas are way too addicting! I have 9 at the moment, my first female Mary Jane passed away last night :( I had my tanks scattered through my apartment now since my sorority is set up I only have one in the bedroom and the other... 5 are in the living room/ kitchen. My boyfriend has stopped telling me no now, and even offered to buy me one or two more females to fill my sorority.

They really are addicting...I got my first one in June! Hubby told me, "No more" after I brought home number 4....and yah. I'm sorry for your loss of Mary Jane. I finally got all the tanks moved into the living room today. I am posting pics in a few minutes. New betta is still not named...I was going to call him "Boaz" meaning "swiftly"...and middle name "Badal" meaning "cloud"..but I'm still not sure..poor guy lol. I saw an amazing HM tonight while I was picking up supplies for one of my tanks...omgosh...I am so glad I didn't have the money. I'm running out of room!

I also love your B theme. I used to only name bettas greek names. I thought I could give a few suggestions...
Bane? < "long awaited child" in Hawaiian
Benito? <means "blessed" in Latin
Bentley?
Benson?
Bosley?
Burton?
Idk what you think but Benito Bane goes together.

Thanks for all the great names! I'll have to put them on my list lol...I like "Bane", but it somehow always makes me think of the phrase, "the bane of my existence"..lol. I drive my hubby mad picking all "B" names...he forgets them all the time..he said I have to make labels for the tanks now ha ha. I like Bentley too...why does this always take me so long? I really like to make sure they mean something...I'll watch him for another day or so..it will come.

LOL..I like how I have you sitting there looking up names too...I think his first name is going to be "Baha" meaning, brilliant...I was going to go with Borne for the middle name, meaning stream, so "brilliant stream"...but now you have me thinking Bade for the middle name..then he would be "Brilliant full moon"...this is another pic of him...
