Introduction to my Boys....Finally (pic heavy)

I figured since I've been kinda just lurking on here for almost a year now I should finally introduce my boys (and girl). (btw sorry in advance for my bad spelling, I'm really terrible at it)

Jareth - male, mustard gas, rosetail
One of the first boys I saw when I got to Petco almost a year ago now. He's a serious diva but incredably shy. Named after the goblin king in Labyrinth.

D.F. aka Dead Fish - male, rosetail
Another Petco boy bought at the same time as Jareth. He's got a terrible habit of floating like he's dead when he sleeps. My aunt jokingly suggested his name since when we first saw him I really thought he was dead, he just floated at the top of his cup not moving or responding.

Ambrosius - male, super delta
Another Petco boy bought at the same time as the first 2. One of my 2 attention hogs, his tank is right next to my bed so if I'm in it he sits there watching me. Also named from Labyrinth.

Garthim - male, halfmoon
Another Petco boy bought at the same time as the first 3. Probably one of my most gorgeous boys with the most amazing finage. Named after the large beetle creatures in The Dark Crystal.

SkekSil - male, veiltail
The last of my first batch of Petco boys. One of my biggest trouble makers, always trying to start fights with his neighbors. Which is were he gets his name from, the trouble making chamberlain Skeksis in The Dark Crystal.
Name:  05 SkekSil 1.jpg

Periot - male, marble, halfmoon plakat
One of 3 Petco boys I bought the weekend after my first group. I returned to Petco looking for a crowntail, they didn't have any the first time I was there, and left with 2 crowntails and a plakat. My other attention hog, his favorite activity is wiggling his fins at me when i'm in my bed. His name just randomly popped into my head.
His color when I first got him

One of 3 Petco boys I bought the weekend after my first group. Very unique boy, named after a Zoid.

Redler - male, crowntail
One of 3 Petco boys I bought the weekend after my first group. A fiesty little guy, he flares at everything. He did a great job as an educational guest at the elementary school my mom works at, I brought him into a few of the classes and explained to the kids how to properly care for a Betta along with a slideshow with pictures of proper tanks and what rice patty fields look like. Also named after a Zoid.

Freyja - female, king, crowntail?
Found at Petco marked as a female veiltail. My only female and one of my best finds, since she was only around $2. Named after the Norse goddess of love and magic.

Quetzalcoatl - male, dragonscale, double feathertail
One of 3 from a huge Petco about an hours drive from my house. I think I nearly died when I saw him, I couldn't believe he was not only a feathertail but also a double tail. Named after the Aztec god.
(I wish I could get a better picture of him)

One of 3 from a Petco aways from my house. For several months I searched the petstores for an orange crowntail that I could name after Doyle from The Secret Saturdays, and he's perfect.

From Walmart all the way in Orlando. Spent a whole day at a Walmart waiting to meet half of the Victorious cast and ofcourse I had to go look at the fish afterwards. So he got to ride in the car for an hour and a half or so. Named after Avan Jogia who I met that day.

Oh my god thanks for all the compliments <3. I'm really lucky the Petcos around here have an AMAZING selection and take pretty good care of them. They even had another double feathertail a few months ago but unfortunately I didn't have the money for him.
