My new HM betta

Hello - I just wanted to pop in and show off my new betta. His home is my 6gal Fluval Edge. I originally was going to get some dwarf puffers or shrimp for this tank but I saw this fella and fell in love. I picked him up at All Fish Emporium (aka the old big al's store). He was labeled as a half moon but I haven't seen him flare yet so I'm not sure if he really is or not. He shares his tank with one zebra Nerite snail.

I was a bit worried that he'd have issues breathing in this tank due to it's design but I'm happy to report that so far he's doing fine. He knows exactly where to go to get a breath of fresh air.

In that past I haven't been a big fan of betta's but this guy has made me reconsider, I absolutely adore him!

He's very pretty! You should name him Leopard. He has the coloring of a snow leopard!

Pongo, because he's black and white and looks like the daddy dalmatian in 101 dalmatians.

Thanks! I like Pongo from 101 dalmations. Some other names I had in mind were Zorro, Pengu and my husbands favorite, Oreo.

He's beautiful . Being marble he'll probably change colors on you. Something to think about when picking a name.

Thanks for all the awesome name suggestions! I've been calling him Leo so I guess that's his name for now :D

I rescaped his tank yesterday and added a sponge over the filter to protect his fins.
