Okay so I'm down to two options for my new betta guy in the picture below!
On my last (and my first one!) I had a poll up for this guy's name and out of the four names (Mercury, Steele, Platinum and Quicksilver) Mercury was the highest accruing 6 votes.
I had completely forgotten about the original name which I chose for this guy which was Silvern. So now I'm torn.
Okay so perks for Silvern:
He's got such a wimpy bite so a slightly more fem. name almost fits.
He's silvery with rosy tails and a blue/green body.
Nickname could be Sil, I would probably just say Silvern though
Perks for Mercury:
The Planet Mercury in horoscopes (only know this because me an my friend were having fun looking our scopes up and we're both ruled by Mercury) is the planet of communication and he never fully shuts his mouths unlike all my others.
Would nickname Merc.
His blood red ventral fins also make me think of mercury as the planet and body is the color of cold mercury.
And last option would be to give him a full name which would just be Silvern Mercury.
