New Fish

He's a red male Veil Tail that I got from Petco about a month ago. I just bought him a new tank and he's really happy with it. You can't really see too well in the pictures, but he has electric blue scales along with the red, so I think I want to name him after that. Any suggestions? (Sorry for the bad photo quality, btw. My camera can't really do close up.)

Hmm, out of those names, I like Shimo the best, but I'm still thinking. This is harder than I thought it would be!

Cute guy! I usually name my pets based on personality, so I can't really help you there.
Like an earlier poster said, some taller plants would make him pretty happy. Mine blew a big bubble nets when I added his in. :P Also, is that Melafix in one of the pictures? Thought I should just let you know that it's not very safe for bettas.
Good luck naming the little guy! :D

Freeflow246, Really? Hmm. I haven't used it for him. Fortunately he's a very healthy fish. I bought it maybe a year or two ago for a fish I had with fin rot. I'll be careful not to use it in the future though. It's funny, because the package said that it could be used for all fish except the ones that were going to be eaten by humans. But then I noticed that if you peeled off the outside, there was a warning on the inside that said in CA they found it to cause cancer and birth defects, so it doesn't sound very safe in general anyways.

I spent too much money buying him the new tank and heater and food (since he wasn't eating the food I had), but my mom said that she'd pick up a few silk plants for me soon!

As for names, I've come up with Lightning, Azul, Neo, and Techno. I like all of them, but I don't really know which one suits him yet.
