New crowntail

While it has only been a few days since Jalen died, I refuse to have a tank sitting idly in my house while bettas sit in cups on shelves. So I went out searching for a new occupant.

And I found the most crowntail that was labeled as a black orchid and I believe is a black orchid, although tell me if I'm wrong. I've wanted a dark crowntail for who knows how long, but he was $20 (heart attack) and I decided to see if I could find any sickly fish at the pet stores around here first.

Well they must have all gotten new stock because they were all pretty healthy except for a few fin biters. So I decided to swallow my pride and hand over my $20 because there was no way I was passing up that boy. One of the stock clerks gave me a $2 off coupon though, so there's that.

He's pretty healthy-looking and active, which is shocking considering how skank his water is. He's waiting in his cup while his tank water gets to room temp. I snapped a few pictures but he's a bit pale in them. The car ride freaked him out lol. I'll put them up in a sec.

I'm thinking about naming him Alduin, but my pride is making me reluctant to name him after a videogame character. And a dragon no less. But if there was ever a fish that resembled Alduin...

I'm also thinking maybe Nightshade. But meh. A bit dramatic?

Any name ideas?

There's also some red on his anal fin that practically disappeared after the ride home.

Dragon included because why not.

Thanks! I was peeking over at him and I realized that he has a little white/grey moustache. :D

Such a handsome boy! Certainly looks like a little Orchid to me xD And my goodness, its amazing how much he resembles that dragon!!
Whats wrong with a video game name, especially an epic dragon? xD Seems like a fitting name to me~

A few new pics! Sorry to revive an old thread but I didn't want to be annoying and start a new one.

So far I'm not sure if I'm going to name him Alduin or Dahlia (like the flower, black dahlia). He's started eating now and is still a bit skittish but not as much.

My CT Sonas looks almost identical to yours. To be honest, I was going to name him Sithis XD But like you, my pride didn't want to let me name him after something from a game/series, so I settled on a scottish-gaelic name. Alduin is fitting, though.
