My New Boy

This boy was given to me by my coworker yesterday. I had helped her move him and his tank to her new apartment and she told me she had never changed his water nor tested it in the 4 months she had him. She fed him like 20 pellets a day too. I took her to the pet store and got some testing supplies and showed her how to test his water. She decided it was too much for her with the water changes and all so she gave him to me. Tank and supplies and all! Hell need a new filter, the one he has is way too strong. He wont swim when its on just stays hidden on the bottom or top corner in some plants. : ( She also had fake plants so I went and bought him some real plants, got him a nice heater and viola. I also upgraded to Prime water conditioner, Flourish Excel and started using some Nutrafin Cycle in all of the tanks. I did leave the hide and the gravel in there. I kinda like it though. Anyway, She named him little Lou/Louie but he just doesnt look like a Louie to me. Ans he is sure not little lol. Not sure if I wanna change his name or even what to change it to. What do you guys think?

He is very pretty. I'm glad you tried to show your friend the true way in raising bettas, but it's not for everyone. At least she didn't have him in a little bowl or anything. He looks healthy & pretty. He looks silver. I would name him Bullet.

I really like the hide & that's the same gravel I use. If you like it, you should keep it. Do you know where she got the hide?

Awww. He's cute. And no. Not so sure on calling him Little Lou/Louie. But I'm not sure what to tell you to call him either. So you could always just keep it. Though I think I wouldn't keep Little in the name. Haha.

And yes, that hide is from Petsmart. Yup, yup. ^.^

Good job to your friend for being honest and giving him to you rather than saying she'd care for him and not doing so and good job to you for taking him on. He doesn't look like a Lou/Louie to me either :/
