New Fishy! :D Need help naming.

I got a betta!

Recently, I posted on the Betta Habitats forum to make sure my set up would be okay and to get everyone else's opinions. Except, when I posted about it, I had gotten the size of the bowl wrong. Instead of being a 3 gallon like I had thought, it was a 4 gallon!

It's heated, and will eventually have a light. I'm going to check out Walmart tomorrow to see if I can find a clip on light that I can clip onto my dresser mirror and shine into the bowl so he can have some lighting during the day.

He's a red, white, and blue veiltail. I went to a local fish specialty store that I had stumbled upon with one of my friends, and while looking around, I found him in the betta section. I didn't have any money on me at the time, so I couldn't get him, and I was really upset. He was so pretty and wiggly and adorable. Today, a few days after I had gone with my friend, I went back to the fish store and searched through the betta cups, and finally found him.

I'll definitely be shopping at that place from now on. The employees know their stuff and take really good care of their fish. All the bettas are big, happy, healthy, and just look so much healthier than the ones at Petsmart. Not one dead betta in this place. I was really impressed. Plus, everything there was cheaper than at Petsmart. <3

Now time for a photo dump!

Meet my new little guy. <3 He needs a name!

In the car, on the way home.


His bowl


When I first put him in the tank after acclimating. He went right over to the plant to hide.




Then he came out to say hi!




Any ideas for names for him?

Thanks! I feel in love with him when I first saw him, and I was so glad he was there when I went back. I do like that name, so I'll definitely consider it. :3

gratz on the fish. How about the name Destiny, Fortune, or Fate, since you came back for him a few days later and he was still there, it was "fortunate" that you two must be "destined" for eachother by "fate". hehe. Btw, is that your boyfriend's car? I can tell its a 5-spd shift stick, what kind of car is it?

Actually, it's an automatic. It's my mom's car. I don't have a boyfriend. :) The car is a Kia Optima, 2012.

I like the names, too. Thanks. :)

If you are in a state that has a Meijers, they carry an LED clip on light. Around $8.99 or there is something like this http://www.amazon.com/Penn-Plax-Aqua...+clip+on+light


Or simply buy a desk lamp, with a small wattage bulb and sit next to it.
