Haha yeah, Gryphon is the name of my blue and yellow HM boy. I do like the name Caesar though! I'll add it to my 'names to consider' list

Congrats! Wow. He's so nice.

Imagine what the store was doing to "treat" him. What he needed was someone to love him, give him clean warm water and good food! Great job :)

How about these for names:
Beau, chale , duece , tiger , atlas , badge , davinci, hamlet, finn , marble, mo, moose , thats all i have right now! Maybe you could name him after someone or thing. I named my rescue after a "lucky" event that happened right after i bought him- when i got two orange crushes out of the soda machine instead of one , so i named him crush!

Probably not much. I like my LFS in that they usually take care of their fish (since that is really all they do, it is a fish store) but even so, their bettas get sub-standard care since they are still in little jars on a display.

I did ask what they had tried, and pretty much it was to move him to the 1 gallon tank he was floating in, and then medicate him (but I don't remember what she said they medicated with). All I've done is give him clean, warm water and regular amounts of quality food. It's amazing what proper care can do for a fish.

His colors remind me faintly of a koi fish. Look at those eyes! I bet he's going to be gorgeous!

I like your naming system! I'm terrible at giving fish names. They'll be in my house for a month or more before I'm like "I should probably call you something other than 'unnamed fishy 2'"

What do you think about the name Maestoso? It means "in a majestic manner" in Italian (I think)

To me, his colors right now remind me of a child that got into his mother's makeup and played with the red lipstick (getting it everywhere of course)
