Unhappy I NEVER name my fish...

It seems that whenever I do they die My last Betta died after we named him, though that was probably because then I was ignorant and chose an old one and put him in too small a bowl. My new Betta has a 2.5 gallon tank and is younger. I kind of want to name him but what if he dies, too? It's not just my first Betta that died, but other saltwater and freshwater fish over the years.

He has a pink body but red fins and tail and face so I think he's beautiful but naming him might bring the bad luck and kill him, too. Should I try naming him?

For all of my bettas I would take a week or two to think of a name for them.. it's probably just coincidence, but you could try waiting a little while to name him, maybe?

I waited a few weeks to name my betta. I got him when he was sick so my fiance didn't want me to name him.. but in my opinion, if he does die, at least he had a caring home and was given a name. :]

Just wait awhile =]

I usually name all my fish, and my betta a bought a couple weeks ago I named and then died. =[
but I have had my new betta a week and I STILL dont have a name. I cant think of one, AND I am nervous. hehe.
but if this betta seems healthy and you've had him awhile, do it!

I don't usually name my pets, only the bigger ones. Since I have a lot of pets, it seems that when I name them, I end up calling them the same thing!!! So I just usually call them like Fishy or Froggy etc.
