Petco King Betta - My new PK boy

So as you may know, My HM betta died yeaterday morning. After class, I decided to stop at petco JUST to have a look. They had some pretty HM dragons (light blue body and yellow fins) and red deltas but after going through gabe's tailbiting issue I was discouraged from getting a long-finned betta. Plus they reminded me too much of Gabe which made me sad. Then I saw the kings. They had 5 or 6 of them. Some of them were HMPK's (all for the same price of $12) but they were all a green/red color combo - not particularly my favorite. This little guy didnt look like much at first - a pale black with a bit of green. Not the best looking guy but I liked him. I was about to walk out the store as I thought it was too soon to be replacing Gabe but then changed my mind and got him. I didnt really get to appreciate his beauty until I got him home and put him under proper light. He's blue, but as you can see in the surface view picture, he has a sheen of green to him. It really is quite stunning when he moves around. the stripes on his fins seem to glow like little neon strips. Im still looking for a name, So far I have:
- Tyrion (character from a series of novels Ive been reading)
- Thanatos (greek daemon/ diety/ personification) of death
- Thorne (?)
Lol they all start with a "T". Suggestions? Im also thinking of 'Pug'. LOL

PICS! (What you all really care about)









I took like 100 pics but these were the best lol. He's pretty shy. Click Here to see more.
