unnamed betta

I've had this betta for years and I feel so guilty that he's still unnamed :(
I need ideas.






He has to my my most favorite betta I've ever had in my life. I don't know why it's so hard to name him.
I always have found it hard to name fish, though...

what about Nonamee? You could make it into a name.

Lol when I first read that I pronounced it No-nah-mee xD
It's kinda cute, but I don't think it really fits him. Sounds a bit too cute for a tough cookie like him.

He's wicked cute! Love the pic with him looking at the small fish!

How about Sinombre? "sin nombre" is Spanish for "without name" and is pronounced "seen NOHM-bray". Sin or Nom for short :)

Since my family is mostly Latin American based, calling him "Sin Nombre" would be essentially what I've been calling him all along.

But I do like Clint Eastwood, I think that's a pretty good name :D
He fits the personality too, actually.

These are GORGEOUS photos! How did you get them to look so good? I love the ones with Noname with another fish. It makes Bettas seem so much more friendly.

I like the name Nomi (pronounced Know-Me)... which is a funny ironic thing since you haven't had a name for him.

I'm boring with names but the one that popped in my head was Carl.

By the way I think those photos are great and he is so beautiful. Glad you liked my name suggestion... it was the first thing to pop into my head.

The sun shines through my window just right at about 5 o'clock every day. I just open up the blinds, put some algae discs in that corner, set my canon on macro and shoot away! The fish are all fast-moving so if I get a good one, I'm very lucky. I can shoot 300 pictures and only two will turn out good. It takes alot of patience and practice. The one thing that gets on my nerves most is that in that corner it's all scratched up. No where else is like that, yet that's the only place where the lighting is good :/

This betta is pretty photogenic.
He's extremely peaceful and tolerant also, that is why I'm able to put him with gouramis. Over the years I've taught him to move slowly or and pose/pause for the camera. He still think he'll get some blood worms if he poses for me :D


Carl would be a good name if only my second thought wasn't that Adult Swim show Aqua Teen Hunger Force. -face palm-

I just took some new pictures of my other bettas because I haven't done so in a long time. I'll post them up here in a few minutes and introduce you to those bettas.
