The right name for this guy?

Hi Everyone,

Been lurking around for some time enjoying the topics posted on this awesome forum. Looking to connect and chat with other beta lovers out there who enjoy them just as much as I do. In NYC and currently keep a few bettas of my own and even working on a spawn or two at a time. I recently acquired a male that I really love and can't wait for some of his kids to grow up. Please correct me if Im wrong but I'm assuming he is a Lavender Mustard Gas? He's not necessarily blue or green but more purplish and mostly dragon scale except for a small area in the face. He has an amazing tenacious attitude and will never sit still. I was lucky to capture this photo of him. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Lui

Thanks for the comment! I know the tail type I'm just confused about exactly what color to call him. Im almost certain he is a mustard type. Hoping to find a similar female for him one day :) Lui

Geez, I have no idea what to name him. I am not the creative one with names. My fiance' who is unfortunatly asleep is the creative thinker. He named our boys. I am more literal with names and I would go with Lavender. But thats very common for such a pretty fish.

What a lovely looking fish you have~

Hmm...He looks like a Julius to me. I've always loved that name.

oh boy. What a lovely fish!!! I'd name him something majestic, to suit his color ^.^ If it were my fish I'd name it a Nintendo character.

Thanks everyone! Thanks Kmcclasky. I'm sure he's a dragon scale I was just unsure of blue, purple or lavender gas. Shirleythebetta, Julius sounds nice, I like it. Thanks for the input. Lui

Moclam suggested that wonderful name. I WISH I was that creative. Is that what you are going with? I think it's nice.
