Rescue!

So recently i had a heater malfunction which kill my new fish. It was a Topfin brand heater so i went back to petsmart and told them that since Topfin is petsmarts brand they should cover my cost of a new fish. They agreed and since the fish would be free to me I really was rescuing it. I tried to find a betta that needed some TLC. Well luckily they were all in rather good health so I let the fish pick me.
I brought home a orange veiltail male who is the most curious fish i have ever had. While I was unpacking his heater I noticed he was staring at the twist tie next to his cup. I picked up the twist tie and slowly moved it around and he kept following it. It was so cute! I can't get enough of these bettas.
Any way here's my new boy :) He needs a name if anyone has any suggestions.

Thank you! He's the first veil tail that ever actually caught my eye :). I like the name Sunny!

Yup, he's beautiful! I never gave any second thought's to VT's when I started out because all we had were those tri-color cambodian types with pinkish bodies and red and blue fins which I've grown to basically hate. I never knew there were other colors lol until I came here and really got into fish keeping. Now we've got some beautiful VT's and I've got no more space to take another male in!!!

I think the name Rio would be cool!! If you decide on Sunny you should find a more manly spelling like maybe Soni or Suni

Rio is a cool name too :O. And Those blue and red veil tails never interest me either. I always have to sort through them to get to colorful guys. I was a tough choice between him and another veil tail (i didn't even like them before I went into the store and then I liked 2! ). Right now I'm going through a rough patch so my mom offered to get me a new fish today (she didn't know I already got one today) and I definitely would have taken her offer and went back and got that other one i was considering if I could handle more than 4.

Hey if you don't want it, I'll take it! lol

That's really sweet of her though! Betta's in general are really great too And yeah I like Rio as well, maybe combine them? Sunny Rio and just call him Rio for short?
