He looks like a California. Or Cal for short.

He might also be a Florida, or Flo Rida. Yeah, name him Flo Rida

Oh, don't worry! :) That's only in the afternoon. He's currently in my greenhouse, but when I get my room I'll move him inside.

Don't Betta fish naturally get these temperatures in the wild?
Not really, Bettas prefer temperatures of 78-84 at the highest. By the looks of your thermometer the temperature seems to be close to 90 which can be dangerous to bettas :o he is very beautiful, good luck with naming!

Just make sure not to put in really cold water, the sudden drop in temperature can put your betta into shock and thats not good. I think the best thing you can do is get a zip lock baggie and put a piece of ice in it and then put that in the filter and that should slowly cool down your tank :o

Or if you decide to bring him in during the afternoon and you have one of those electric heating pads you could put the tank on top of that to act like a makeshift heater.

Ah, thanks! :) This isn't his permanent home so I have him in a small 2 gallon container and I do a water change every day. I hope to move him to a divided 10g soon.

I actually moved him inside right after I changed his water, in a shelf, for the meanwhile I get my room (it's in construction, what a bad time to start a betta hobby... >_>)my mom had to find I had a hidden fish someday LOL. He doesn't need a heater, the water naturally warms to 79F inside. :)

@RobertTheFish: Thanks!

So takoda is the name then? Nice. To cool down his "tank" you can put ice in a glad or tupperware container and float it in his tank.
