I have many fish, only some don't have names. Funny, all my bettas do even though their the newest and I'm relatively new to bettas. Been raising guppies, mollies, and Cory cats for about ten yrs. My avatar is Irridescence, Opal is my white(opaque?)/gold male; Sapphire is my blue/clear hm butterfly plakat; my 3 sorority girls are Vermilion(vermilion/reds/greens), America(blue and red), Pewter(steel blue/gray and red). All the girls are crown tails.
All my tanks have live plants, some heavily planted. Most nubias, some Amazon swords, moss balls, some dwarf Lily bulbs. Very good article/sticky at top of betta bowls, habitats page on beginner plants. Tropical fish love lots of hammocks and hiding places that live plants provide.

Very cool.
..does plant life do well in a 2.5 gallon tank? I also don't like plastic plants. What other things should others know about fresh water plants?

My CT's name is Admiral Apocalypse. I used to have a red VT years ago named Captain Destroy so I decided to go along the same theme.

My Double Tail is named Winchester because I'm a HUGE Supernatural fan!

My sister's Blue VT is named Jon Snow because she loves the character on Game Of Thrones.

Edit: I almost forgot my moss ball Tribble. (Star Trek fan also).

Ooh, fun thread!

Well my betta's names come from the cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender. I've been a fan of that show for years, I just love it! Lotus (blue CT) comes from the word I picked up on in the show. Lotus's are so pretty too. :3

Aang (white-pink and red HM) gets his name from the main character of Avatar.

Sozin (yellow-orange and red VT) gets his name from a fire-bender (b/c he's red) from Avatar. lol

Kaito (all purple/lavender VT) has a Japanese name that means "ocean".

Seishin (white with blue fins, VT) has a name that means "spirit" in Japanese.

The last two names aren't directly from Avatar, but it goes with the Japanese language and names that are used in the show.

So yeeaaa.... :3 -Avatar nerd- =P

Techno- After the Wombats' song "Techno Fan"
Peanut Butter- One of my favorite foods and a cute name for a cute fish.
My sister's allergic to peanut butter, and my mom said, "Why would you name a fish after something that would kill your sister?! How would you like it if she named a fish... arsenic?" Lol, I wouldn't care. xD

I'm getting two more this summer!
Tsume- A character from Wolf's Rain. (I believe it's Japanese for claw, which fish don't have, but it sounds like a good name.)
Mr. Brightside- After the song by the Killers.

Yukiteru - Named after the main protagonist from The Future Diary, it translates as "snow shine" For short we call him Yuki (yu -ki) which means "have hope". Mind you, I named him for his shy & timid behavior as well as his brilliant color but since he's a juvi, it just might change. There's another thread here --> about what color he might be, but his name will remain Yuki.

Two of them were named after soccer players because I am a huge fanatic! Comanche is the nickname of a defender on Real madrid. And Benzema is the last name of another player. Both players are my obsession. Rufio was gonna be named after a player but he reminded me too much of the lost boy from peter pan so Rufio it was :) Oh and Malachi means my Angel and that is exactly what he was <3
