Smile Got one of my dream bettas! :D

For those of you who saw my post in the rant thread about how Humphrey wasn't/isn't feeling so great, and that I felt horrible about it, and that there would be no more bettas...

Hey, I told my parents not to buy me any.

And they didn't listen.

Dad came home from the pet-store with this boy (I'm surprised he knows what my dream betta looks like! He must've actually been listening when I blabbered about bettas.)

My parents got him because they know how sad I was when Faust died (who looks a lot like this boy actually), and he was one of the boys I was going to breed- and so this new boy I am supposed to find a female for and breed. I'm up to that and everything, and it was really nice of my parents to think of me, but... Well, I really shouldn't complain. He's gorgeous, and my parents were so thoughtful to get him for me.

Anyway, sorry about the massive wall of text! Excuse the bubbles. Any suggestions for names? I'm leaning towards Aristotle.

Thank you :) And I apologize for the blurry pics, and that you can't see his fins too well... it's hard to photograph cellophanes for that reason.

And I've noticed he's a little bloated... he better not have any internal parasites D:<

Sorry for the double-post here, but I've decided on the name Cass for him :) After the drummer in Gorillaz. (Mmhmm, I'm a fangirl okay?)

And he's doing better :) Showed some interest in a pellet, and came up to the front of the tank to take a good scrutinizing look at me...

I think Aristotle is an awesome name; the only name I could suggest would be Laertes. :)
