Yeah, I think he might be a copper but I can't be positive right now, my lighting right now is not so good, it may be better in the morning

Is he not dragon?? (I don't know the difference between dragon and copper if this is the case) But I thought the overlapping, solid scales indicated dragon?

*eta* copper is just a color.

Ryuu, Japanese name meaning "dragon spirit."
Kappatsu or Suteki both loosely mean "spunky".

He looks quite exotic and those names sound pretty exotic, lol. He is a beaut, though :)

Japanese names seem to be common for fish haha. Does that mean "Dragon god"?

I kind of like Suteki more than Kappatsu. Of course my next fish will probably be Mitsu (meaning three, since he'd be the third betta fish I've ever had in my life) or maybe Hi Fi because I just love that name. :)

Yeah, I've noticed a lot of betta names are of Japanese or eastern origin xD

Here's a list of names I'm kind of looking at... most are of Norse/Nordic mythology (I'm kind of leaning towards those) The ones in bold are my favorites

Draki
Drakon
Fafnir
Fraener
Fenrir
Jormungandr/Iormungand/Gromungand

Longwei
Nidhogg
Ormr
Ormarr

Ryuu
Tatsuo
Naga
Veles
Volos
Maur

Balerion

Looks like we were looking at the same list (or two very similar ones) :p

Fraener probably would have been my second choice. It rolls off my tongue easier than some of the others. But of course you can choose any name you'd like! I know it's not easy to get that right one.
