New member, Meet my betta(s)

Hello! My name is Mandi and I'm a brand new member here, but a long time betta lover. I have been keeping bettas for 7 or 8 years now. Anywho. I currently work at a one location all natural pet store in MA and I am an inventory manager. We pride ourselves on carrying locally bred livestock and we handpick all of our fish and if it isn't healthy looking it doesn't come to our store... anyways enough of that, I currently am owned by two betta fish. One I left at my mother's house when I moved to my apartment with my husband, mainly because she had lost hers and she really liked him. He is a red butterfly delta tail boy who was turned into our store (instead of being flushed... how nice of his former owners to think of him, eh?) and I fell in love immediately. He's super awesome and wicked quirky and he's HUGE! Has a massive appetite too. He's probably around 3 or more years old and has had a little fin rot so he isn't as beautiful now as he once was but he's currently healthy and doing well.
Bruce Fishinson:

resting on his leaf. He loves that plant!


his pretty little self. I love my Brucey!

My new betta (yet unnamed) is a black orchid crown tail male. He is awesome. I saw him and had to get him as soon as he came into our store. I just recently moved him into a new 2.5 gallon setup and he loves it. He swims around flaring at everything that moves and he's definitely a spunky little thing. I have yet to pick out a name for him, mostly since I'm totally horrible at naming things... lol









and just because I love it, his new tank. I think it is very classy looking compared to the acrylic "critter tank" he was in before, lol!




That's that. Just wanted to introduce ourselves! Thanks for looking!

Thank you!

If anyone has any name suggestions for the CT... I'm open for hearing them! LOL I like fantasy book/movie names so anything of that nature would be cool. I'm so uncreative right now. I toyed for a moment with naming him Vladimir but I dunno if it fits him, :/

That is awesome! I dunno, I kinda like "Vlad" too.... If it keeps itching at me in a couple days it'll probably stick... but for now I'll still leave it open for suggestions. xD

-Onyx
-Coal
-Carbon
-Smoke
-Crow
-Iron
-Licorice
-Mamba
- Ink, Inkheart
- ninja
-Rain ( rain clouds...)
- Sheep ( as in black sheep hehe)
- Market? (xd...Black market)
- Coffee? Tea? ( i love coffee and it is black before you add cream)


I've been on the hunt for a black betta so I am prepared to name one..xD

I have come up with another name option and I don't know how I feel about it, Dendro. It is an abbreviated version of my favorite type of orchids, dendrobium... lol I dunno. Just thought of it. I still like Vlad and I like Ninja too.

Thank you to everyone for the welcomes. PixelatedPaint, I do love how this tank looks at night. The flower totally pops with the light centered above it! And Miish I would love to hear a crown tail lover's opinion on my boy! I have a soft spot for double rayed crowns myself... when I saw this guy was the only double rayed in the batch we got (and his color was so awesome) I had to beg my hubby to let me get back into bettas. I had just broken down a ten gallon tank with platy fish in it. So that is that story, lol.

tehe Magneto! I love Xmen... lol I dunno. Nothing has quite gone *That's it!* yet for me and I think that's how I usually know it's a good name, it feels "right" if that makes sense... lol
