Hey everyone! Got my first Betta today, and I'm shocked at how quickly he's adjusted to his new tank. He's already eating the flakes I have! (they don't have pellets at my LFS >_<). So yeah, they had about 9 bettas there today and it was a choice between two, a purple one and a red one. The purple one has got beautiful fins and had a HUGE bubble nest that covered the surface area of the 2.5 gallon tank he was in (they treat the Betta fish a lot better there than they do in walmart lol) but after close inspection the red one was a tail biter (I knew it wasn't fin rot as I actually saw him biting a bit of his fin from his tail, shame as he was a really pretty red). So I have a purple Betta fish but I haven't thought of a name for him yet! Any ideas for me? He's also very active, but I imagine that will die down after he gets more used to his surroundings (he's been exploring for the good part of two hours even though there's not that much to explore lol).

I will be getting about 3 more artificial plants for him in a week too. Also, I have a question that might sound really dumb but here goes: How do they sleep when they have to go to the surface for oxygen? That has been confusing since two days ago when I thought about it and I never bothered asking about it...

So anyway, here's a few pics of him and his tank! I love how his body is dark and then the fins are light!!!!! So then any suggestions for names? And sorry about so many pics! lol btw what type is he??? And the images are so small because it was taken by my iPod's camera

Good luck!
