My Lovely New Boy!

I had an extra 2.5 gallon tank and all the supplies for a betta. Not putting them to use was killing me, so I stopped by the Pet Smart on Friday to look at the new ones. I went back today and purchased this little guy! I wanted a crowntail, since I own a halfmoon and have owned a double tail. I'm still unsure about a name. I've owned three other bettas, and all three were named before they were purchased! This guy is being a bit tricky. His name has to be Greek or Roman, since that's my theme. I'm kicking around a few: Hercules, Helios, Remus, Augustus, and Ovid. Let me know which one YOU like! Also, what color is he classified as? I'm thinking he may be orange or just a very pale red.

Aww, well isn't he such a handsome little guy! Congrats on the find! I have such a soft spot for CTs myself, but the selection around here is so sparse...

I have to say Helios is the name that jumped out at me when looked at him. Seems quite fitting to me. ;)

It's hard to say, since he may be faded from being in a cold cup for a while, but I wonder if he won't turn out to be an orange dalmatian? Something about him really reminds me of that color pattern.

I also like the name Helios. =)

I think you should name him Remus and call him Remmy!

I'm not sure about his color but you should give him a few days to color up!

It's not on the list, but I immediately thought "He's an Ares!" the second I saw him! So beautiful!

Thanks everyone. I'll see if his color comes in a bit more over the next few days. I'll certainly post pictures!

I do really like Helios. I also like Remus because I could call him Remmy, which would go nicely with my theme (Pontus- Ponty, Catullus- Tully). Elsewhere, I actually wrote down a much longer name list and Ares was indeed on that. I do really like the name. I'll sleep on it tonight and hopefully make a decision soon!

He's such a cutie Haleigh! He's definitely red, looks like he's got some copper down the genetic pike though which gives him that sheen over the red. But he's definitely red I hope he fairs well for you!

I'm partial to Remus as well but Ares is nice too ^_^
