I have to admit, when I went to my LFS I wasn't sure I was ready to take a betta home. And I was definitely thinking I would be getting another colourful boy. But this little guy was so cute, flapping his big ears at me. He was the only one that would not only flare at me, but look at my face...even as I was looking at the other bettas there!
The pics I have aren't the best...they were in extremely low light because I had just moved him over to his QT. I will try and get some better pics in the next couple of days!
As for his name...Yuki means snow in Japanese. My 6 year old son wanted to name him Gastonium (no idea where he got that from...he made it up...sounds like a radioactive isotope or something!). I told him that it was a bit big for a first name, but perfect for a middle name! All I could think of was what his nickname would end up being...Gassy or something! LOL Then my 7 year old son wanted to contribute a middle name, so he came up with Pengi...because he likes Sidney Crosby from the Pittsburgh Penguins, and Penguins have white on them. So his full name is Yuki Gastonium Pengi...but I'm just gonna call him Yuki!
Let me know what you think of my new boy!!!
