He's a dragonscale betta, so I thought it fit!

Your Bo is so beautiful! I am so glad you had a kind heart and took that little guy from that awful situation. I wish there were more people in the world like you - it would be a much better place!
That's so cool!!! XD
Dragon names for the dragon bettas! I feel rather silly now, calling Bo... well... something so simple~ ah well, he doesn't seem to mind ^_^
Still, that's really, really far-out!

Thank you very much for your own kindness- truly- if it wasn't for kind people like you and the other folks on this site, Bo wouldn't be any better off from his first home ^^;
I mean, I knew absolutely nothing about fish and their needs, but luckily, I came here, and I was able to find good advice and friends to help me help Bo.
So, Bo and I are absolutely lucky to have met people like you! <3 Thank you!

(Thank you, I think Bo's a pretty handsome guy, too! Then again, I'm biased and I believe that all bettas are the most beautiful fish in the world! ^^)

So it would be in a criss-cross fashion with beads hanging down? That's ingenious! ^^
The best part? I may already have the things needed!!!!
Thank you for the idea!

I agree! Their colors really do shine through! I think that the pun should be intended. :P

Oh goodness, here comes my nerdiness shining through. There is a rpg (role-play game) called Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (for console gaming). In this game, you play as whatever race you choose, and as part of the main story line, you end up finding out that you are the Dovakiin. In the game, Dovakiin is actually part of the language of the Dova, or dragons. Dovakiin means Dragonborn in this language. ^////^

Totally rad!
