Impulse buy . . .

Hey guys!

I wasn't really planning on buying a fish for awhile until I had his tank completely ready. Well I'm sure plenty of you know how that plan goes.. I just walked into Petsmart to check prices for fluorite and browse the bettas of course (which, for the most part, looked very healthy. I was impressed). Little did I know I would be walking out of there with one. Two, if I had my way. But both the ones I wanted were 13 each and I just didn't have that much on me, so I had to choose. </3

I ended up going for him because his coloring would look so great against the black sand - he's a frosty teal with hints of red that I didn't notice until after I brought him home! I haven't thought of a name for him yet, but I was thinking something mystical like elvin or gaelic.. or a "fairy" name as my mom would say. He looooves the fairy moss and frogbit, he spends most of his time darting over and under the roots.

Deez some picz. Any name suggestions? Before I pull out the handy dandy baby name book.. yes I have a baby name book. Mostly for Sims and betta fish. ahahahaha

Bullet is actually kind of a temporary name.. my brother gave it to him on the ride home because he was darting around the bowl and "Titanium" was on the radio. X) Bullet hasn't really stuck much for me, so I am still open to suggestions. Thank you though :)

He's so pretty!

What's one of your favorite books or movies? What about picking a name from that?

Wow! My betta looks EXACTLY like him (not the one in my profile pic)! They could be the same fish! :O

Ooh ok! Then I would name him frost. He seems a bit frosty with the light blue, I guess.
