Got myself some new boys

Today I got myself 3 new betta boys, and need help thinking of names for 2 of them.

Halfmoon

Depending on the light, his fins appear to be either a pale redish or an steel blue.

Crowntail

Not the clearest picture, but he's mostly blue with some red streaks on his anal fin

And I've already named the last one. This is my other halfmoon boy, Derecho (his coloration makes me think of an intense thunderstorm).


Oh and just so he doesn't feel left out, I had 1 betta already before getting these 3. He's a crowntail names Kinu (means silk in Japanese).


Also, I'm new to this site, nice to meet you all :)

Thanks :) and since bettausa asked, here is a few more of the 1st one



Some of them aren't as clear as I'd like, but it really shows how he can't seem to decide what color he is.

Also, starlight is kind of cute, but maybe a little feminine. That's usually the biggest problem I have, I can think of a lot of cool names for female pets, but the males take some thinking.

They're actually CTs. The fins are just close together.

Ohh! I don't know why I didn't think of Kaito, that'd be a good one for the blue one :)
For the 1st one, I was thinking something to do with his smokey/misty coloring.

And yes, Kinu and the blue boy are both defiantly CTs. I'll have to find a small mirror and get them to puff up a bit next time I try taking photos.

Also, I have some bad news :( Derecho has gotten sick. His fins look a little shriveled and his coloring is kind of grayish. I originally had the 3 in a 10 gallon tank with dividers, but I had to move him to his own tank with some medication. I'm really hoping he'll pull through.
