I was bad...new King Plakat -Needs name!-

So I picked up a 1.5 gallon tank that runs between $20 and $30 new. I got it for $6 with filter, light, food, conditioner, net etc.. So anyways new tank means I need another betta. Yeah right. So anyways my mom went to another store while I walked into petco praying nothing would jump out at me. We are moving in like a month and so I didn't want to get another one, but having such a nice tank empty was driving me mad. So I went in looking for a halfmoon or delta since I know some do better in smaller tanks due to their tails, that and I was sick of VTs. I really wanted a white delta and they did have one. They also had some beautiful DT one black and one black marble. So while browsing I noticed this guy, I checked his price and said no way! $17 something. Came up to around $18. I couldn't believe how much he cost. But while looking I just kept coming back to him. So I caved and bought him. I stuck him in my purse so my mom wouldn't see him right away and then I asked her not to kill me. She just shook her head and I am banned from petstores...at least their is still walmart lol
But anyways this is no name a marble king plakat. In the car I realized what drew me to him. His baby face and blue eyes. Anyways I am in love with this guy. He won't be staying in his tank forever once we move he will get either a 5 gallon or ten gallon. Will have to decided. He is around 2 inches but I am going to assume he is young and has some growing to do yet. He is really big though lol. Sorry for the super long post.

Any name ideas are appreciated. Something japanes would be great.

They always do. I try to never take a betta if it isn't interested in me. My one girl I just got because well she was cute. We get along, but don't have much of a bond like I do with my other fish. The 2 in my sisters room I don't care much for either, but something about them caught my sisters eyes so I am not complaining. They chose her. I was so mad about the DTs though. I wanted them so bad and they were cheaper, but they just weren't interested in me. totally ignored me. I had to respect that and went with the guy who did seem to like me.

I do like the name Luki...will consider.

LOL this is exactly what happened to me >< I went in wanting a Plakat and ended up with a HM King >< I only have the one betta now though :P

He just seemed to have the best personality and... he was nose to tail in his little cup and had to curve his body to fit. I think he is pretty old, but he is spunky. My boyfriend even fell in love with him.

lol I have been wanting a marble plakat, just something smaller that could live in the tank permenantly. I used to think the kings were scary looking. The first time I saw them I was like no way these things are scary. Actually I still think that about some of them, but not this guy. I think he has such a baby face lol
