Talking New Young Betta Fishy! Need name!

I went to a reptile store today (I'm not sure why they sell bettas...) to get a 'rainbow' betta but he wasn't there. There was a pink almost dead betta D:, a active red one and this very cute small guy! He had trouble breathing and was to small for my likeing soooo I got him :D

He is in my cube for a while untill I want him in a 2.5 I have. He is changing color a lot! At first he was all purple, then blue/grey, then mustered! Now he is a mix of red, purple and blue but still pale. He is skinny and from the info of other members around 3 mounths old. I am taking care of him and what not :D

I wounder what tail he is, probly a vt. Tail and of course name ideas!? I'm thinking Fredrick but I want it to be as cool as my other betta, Ula's name >.<

(the 1st pic is when I got him, the 2nd is a few houres later)

wow, he is extremely emaciated D= I've seen alot of skinny fish on this forum, but he's probably about the worst. Poor baby, I hope he pulls through!!! If he was mine I'd name him Lupin, but you name him whatever you want =)

Poor guy, he is SO skinny. Maybe feed him fattening foods to get him back up to shape. :)

He's definitely a veil tail. Pretty little guy.

Thanks guys! I didn't really know how skinny he was untill I got us back home. He is licking the rocks and the sides of the cube D: He looks a lot better in the cube then in that cup. In his cup was some lettic(I so spelt that wrong, the green plant in salids and stuff..) , LETTIC! Do they even eat that? Poor baby, well he survied the night witch is REALLY FREAKING AWESOME! I'm happy he is all good and making friends with Ula~

Lupin is a cool name, like that guy from Harry Potter >.<
