Meet my new bettas! Name suggestions needed!

I just got 2 new bettas (waiting for them to come in from Thailand, then waiting for my shipper to contact me).

Meet Pongo and no name! I've been looking for a spotted betta for a while since Dalmatians are my second favorite dog breed (can you guess the first? ;) ). No name here though, has no name! I've been calling him "Rainbow" and "Mystery" since my friends and I couldn't come up a name for him. I was thinking something artsy since he reminds me of pastel colors.

Name suggestions for him? Oh I just can't wait to get them.

Call me crazy, but the fish in the first picture on the top left does not appear to be the same as the fish on the bottom left. The markings don't match... Anyone else seeing that?

It's him, the image is flipped so you're looking at his other side. No idea why but I double checked with the seller.

I also think no name there might be a Rosetail?

Ohhhh good. That makes sense now, yes, it does look like his other side haha. I was worried for you for a moment lol

Yep, the other guy might be considered a rosetail. Careful he doesn't end up finbiting on you. Provide lots of things for him to rest on near the surface!

A decent sized PVC tube attached with aquarium sealant near the water line would work wonders for a resting spot you can cut them in half lengthwise too I hang them with thread and paper clips right now until I can find aquarium sealant my fish love them (make sure you sand them very very smooth )

5 giant goldfish, 23 bettas, a dozen guppies, 20 bronze/albino corys and a random assortment of a few other community fish/ invertebrates.
1 adorable little frog, 5 cats, 3 dogs and a wonderful toddler aged daughter

A bit morbid but the rosetail reminds me of blood splatter! Maybe Dexter?
