So I got 2 new HM's off Aquabid and they are doing fairly well in their QT tanks. But I am a bit stumped with names... for the first time ever.
The first one is a huge OHM opaque white from Aquastar 71. He has been healthy as a horse and very dignified in his behavior. Being slightly picky about food, never wolfing or jumping. Active without being spazzy and interactive in a calming way.
The other one is a smaller platinum gold halfmoon with a face and body unlike any other betta I have had... maybe he is very young? The belly never rounds out when you feed him and his eyes are huge with a small short mouth that isn't upturned. He is on the shy side, and unfortunately came with missing scales all over his body.
MY original plan was to name the big white Dillinger and the other one Nelson (aka babyface nelson) to go with "pretty boy" floyd to make up the depression era gang. But I am questioning naming them after gangsters that never lived passed 35, especially since Floyd has had some health issues.
So now I am tossing around - Puff (Daddy) and Slim, Cumo (means cloud or spider in Japanese) and Chibi (slang for tiny in Japanese) Hiro and Mohinder....
I really do like my original names, since they suit them ... but do you think it's bad luck to name them after criminals that met early deaths?
