My new buddy

Picked up my new buddy today, a dragonscale

I've attached a couple of pics of him and his new home. No name as yet, I'm thinking something like Jagger or Bowie, but open to suggestions with a musical/pop culture surname theme...

Unfortunately my filter, air pump, extra substrate and cover clips have been delayed so I guess I'm facing daily water changes until they've arrived?

I'll be seeding the tank with filter media from my other established tank. I'm aware that a fish in cycle with a betta is not ideal, but I did this with my other betta and he made it though just fine. I'm very diligent with water testing and changes so please don't judge me too harshly! Of course I'm using Prime as my water conditioner.

Hopefully this guy will have a long happy life, looking forward to spoiling him rotten like my other betta

I've just done some Googling and it seems he might not be a true dragonscale, perhaps a metallic? Can anyone confirm his colouring/type? Doesn't bother me either way, just curious. I think he's cute!

Nice fish, I'm sure he'll be very happy with you :)

Jagger.... nah. Bowie's a pretty good name How about Ziggy or Iggy? Keep it glam.

You're right, he's too flashy to be a Jagger. I've narrowed it down to Bowie, Cooper (Alice) or Reed (Lou)... Thoughts?

I like Bowie as well. He's very handsome, congrats! :)

And you are correct, he is not a true dragonscale. He does look to be a metallic.

I can't quite tell from the pictures. Is he a veiltail?
