He needs a name!

This is my new boy! Currently, he is the last one I can get as I'm out of tank space.

He's in a quarantine tank right now, so if there's anything about him you think needs watching, please let me know. The fish at the store had just been fed frozen blood worms when I got him, and all the CT's had really big bellies! His has gone done some. He's had a normal poop, but just as I was taking these pics, I noticed some coming out of him that looked grayish, but not exactly bad.

He has a few black spots on his side... are those just a part of him?




Here's a video. He doesn't move much, but he has been exploring the tank. He's only been in it a few hours though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGcDF-2b5Zo

But anyways, he needs a name. It has to start with "S" though.

He is beautiful! Other than the usual, "new home" fins clamping he looks healthy. The spots are hard to see, but may be just coloring or a missing scale because of rough handling...let him settle a couple days, and you'll know better by how he's acting and looking...congrats!

He reminds me of the sky at sunrise...here is a possible name.
ZORAN (Зоран): Serbian name meaning "light of dawn."

Bettanewbie, I love you get your fish names!!

Thanks, Candice!

He does look rather scared and timid in his new home.

I am crazy about picking names...meaning is everything...I think a name should have "strength" to it, if that makes sense lol.

AKIKO (1-秋子, 2-明子, 3-晶子): Japanese name meaning 1) "autumn child" or 2) "bright child" or 3) "sparkling child."

He's adorable! Do you prefer people-names for your fish, or do you not have a preference?
Naming is half the fun! haha
