  16. Naming Your Betta

    Betta Fish Care
    Hi all, When I get my betta, I'm hoping to name him a Thai name to heed his origins. Any suggestions that mean something (I was thinking 'fire', or 'sun') would be helpful. But since it would be selfish to open a forum like this and use it for my benefit only, I want everyone to post their...
