Thanks! He's a very nice shade of blue when he gets into the light, but he likes to crowd the front of the tank when I'm nearby. He does have a number of plants, and tonight I added a little rock "cave" in case he wants anything darker. This is my first betta and after watching him swim around in the ten gallon I have for him, I'm shocked that so many people buy them just to let them sit in a little bowl. They're very active, and it's kinda' sad.
And as always happens with fish, I am now setting up a second ten gallon tank for another betta. Good times.
And as for the name, it's the first thing that came to mind as I put him in the tank, and if that's the first thing, then that's the name.
