Love your guys! I have a CT that looks almost exactly like that, but a bit darker all around, which just made me think of the show Archer: "No, Woodhouse, there's 10 black turtlenecks and then 10 in a slightly darker black."

Hmm...Maybe Archer for a name?

All mine end up being named the first thing I call them, if that helps. Usually the best names, I've found, are the most natural.

I had just broken down a ten gallon tank with platy fish in it. So that is that story, lol.
Haha he loves it! Says you could name it Oracle or something :)
I'm new to the hobby right now but I can already feel myself getting addicted :O

it's easy to get addicted quickly!! We have a platinum and yellow Plakat male at my store now that I fell in love with today.... I'm debating how to ask my hubby if I can add one more... lol I like the name Oracle. I think I'm going to write down all the name ideas I like and sit by the tank and call all of them to the fish and see which one he flares at :P that will tell me which to name him! LOL Maybe I'll video it to give everyone a chuckle.... tehe

double post, sorry. I have decided on names. This boy, the CT, is now Shruikan (pronounced shrew kin) and the yellow dragon I mentioned in my last post that I'm buying is going to be Glaedr (pronounced glay der) and they are awesome! I am naming them after dragons from the Inheritance Cycle books by Christopher Paolini! Whoot! Thank you everyone who suggested names because I did think long and hard about all of them and there were some really good suggestions I'm going to keep in mind for future bettas (muahaha! lol)

They are all gorgeous, but I especially love Shruikan's finnage and coloring. I used to have a crowntail named P.B. Sadly he has since passed on, but here is a pic. Love the fishies!

Wow Betta Mommy that is one gorgeous red Crown! I don't usually take to reds too much (not my favorite color) but that is a stunning fish.

I have Glaedr on hold at my work until friday but I might just take him home today to motivate me to set up my tank... lol! I'm going to eventually be dividing a ten into 2/3 sections to have a couple more fish, but for now he can have run of the place!


Here is a picture of Glaedr for those who haven't seen my other thread about him yet ;)

Those are BEAUTIFUL boys! I like your tank too very calming to look at. I'm looking into re doing my tanks with more natural looks as I'm sick of seeing how they look now, and my one CT male passed :( . yours is beautiful!
