New little guy!!!

I got a new fish his name is Kingpin..My father had a betta when I was a kid and I always loved the site of them. I'm so excited about my new fish. I'm going to upgrading his home soon and I'll post some pictures when he gets his new pad! Tell me what you think of him so far!

Ok so right after I had taken those pictures and posted this thread about my new betta something very strange happened...I had Kingpin for less than 24 hours and all of a sudden I was watching him and he started to twitch and then sink to the bottom..I had no idea what to expect..then it looked like he was trying to swim back to the top but just could not muster the strength to swim up there...he then proceeded to twitch some more until he finally stopped moving and just layed there on the bottom...Do any of you know what may have happened to him?..So shortly after I rode out to the store and bought a new tank with a filter and bought a heater...I set it all up and now have a new betta...I almost feel guilty replacing Kingpin so suddenly..but fell in love instantly when i bought kingpin and i know this is far from the last betta I buy! I am also requesting help naming this new guy. I just can't for the life of me seem to come up with a name...Here are some pictures:

I thought that too. He wasn't bloated or anything though..So I felt REALLY guilty that he passed from the conditions before I had time to go and get the new tank...But I have it all set up now and the newest edition seems to be loving life...better than that horrible little cup he came in.

well u could also read alot of betta fish tips and try youtube, got alot of good tips there! its really hard to take care of fish because u really need to learn the do's and dont's when setting up an aquarium.. i suggest feed it with flakes not pellets, or you could do a little research on pellets or flakes.
