New Pair of CTs!(Picture Heavy)

Well I'm very happy and excited We took a rare trip a good 45 minutes-an hour away and a couple towns over in order to go get a training book for our new puppies, and guess whats right next to the book store? A Petsmart! With all sorts of purdy bettas 8)

So I picked up two, a new CT female for my Sorority and a stunning CT male to go on the other side of my divided 10 gallon with Sasuke. One day I'd love to breed these two, but thats a while off for sure

Heres the female, couldn't get many pictures of her. She wasn't keen on being photographed xD For names I was thinking either Shasta or Shiva.....or anything else anyone wants to suggest? xD
Also, shes has a little more blue then these pics show






Heres my male. I and an employ were searching through the numerous cups and there were several very pretty bettas....but I saw him and it was love at first site. There were no second thoughts, he was absolutely stunning and I HAD to have him.
I feel these pics don't do him justice....but a couple of them are pretty good. Also, his fins are more red and his body is a paler blue.
Names.....well the ones that popped into my head were Supernova and Skylark.....but feel free to suggest xD

I like Shasta and Skylark! They are absolutely beautiful. I saw some females like yours at Petsmart the other day.

Thanks guys!

What was really funny was while I had the male set aside and was looking through the females, I spotted her and picked her up and said 'Oh, this ones a Crowntail!', mostly to myself xDD The girl employee helping me gave me a funny look, then went away for a minute...and when she came back she was talking to this other guy apparently about what a Crowntail female looked like. xD It never fails to amuse me how truly little they know about the fish the work around every day.

Yeah, Shiva and Supernova were the two names I'd been leaning towards....we'll see, I might change my mind in a day or two xD

Same thing happened to me today, so here I am carrying my three cups and I pick up Saiprus and go "OMG he's a DTVT" and the lady looks at like "It's just a betta". Always an amusing time XD

xDD I know, right? Its even funnier when they think they know what they're talking about. When we got Max, my moms Doubletail, the lady was trying to tell her that she could put in an ADF with him in a half gallon bowl, but she should wait for heathy bacteria to form first. I'm standing there, struggling not to laugh and correct her xD

Thanks!

Okay, a few new pictures just taken. First is the best one I can get without flash. Doesn't do him any justice, but it shows more of his real colors. The flash also doesn't catch the purple in him and a closer inspection reveals his body to be really more of a lavenderish color.....Ugh, hes really stunning but no picture seems to capture what he REALLY looks like >.<;
He also decided that he needed to show me whos boss and flare at me whenever I got too close xDD I though it was cute, so snapped a few shots of that.
