Help me name my new DTPK! :)

I got him yesterday from Petco. A little about his personality: He's really active and flares a lot, and he has an RCS in the tank with him. He chases her around but it doesn't seem like he is actually trying to eat her because I'm sure he could have already if he wants to. It seems more like he flares to protect his territory and show off, but he doesn't really seem aggressive (if that makes sense, haha). I also noticed that he has one long pelvic fin and one really short one, which is ironic because Bahari, the Betta in this tank before him, also had a crippled pelvic fin.

Anyways, here he is:



A good flaring picture on my actual camera:

and another picture on my actual camera to show off his iridescence:

The ironic thing is, the last Betta I had in this tank was also a marble and had one pelvic fin shorter than the other. I didn't notice that this guy did until I got him home.

Of course, my last marble had this pretty blue in his tail and it jumped off and he never marbled again. He also went blind, and he loved to flare before he went blind, so I really hope this guy doesn't go blind lol. :(

Bump: thanks for voting, guys!

I JUST found out that Genesis is also a type of car so it fits my whole naming theme! Lol.

Thanks for your replies and votes! I have decided to go with Zenvo but you helped me narrow it down to 2 options. Here's why I chose Zenvo:

I asked my dad which one he liked and after asking him which name of the the two he liked better about 20 times he finally gave me an answer, but also a very good explanation: Zenvo seems like a much less common name than Genesis.

I thought about it, searched the forum a bit and found that there have been other members with fish named Genesis, but the only threads that include the name Zenvo are either my threads or ones I commented on. Not that I'd mind having a fish with the same name as another member but I don't want someone to feel like I stole the name from them (its happened to me, though I don't think it was on purpose).

Anyways, I'm weird, obsessed with names, and I hold them kind of sacred to me. Plus, Zenvo fits with my car naming theme (but so does Genesis - Genesis Coupe - I just didn't know that at first, haha) and I think that he deserves a unique name for a unique fish :)

Thanks again!
