What's your opinion on naming them (bettas) after Greek gods/goddeses? I think it's a great idea! I, personally, have never done it because I think it would induce a name related "collection" of bettas on my part. I think I would say "well, I have an Artemis and Athena. Now I need a Poseidon. Let's find a blue one!" <-- That's the kind of mentality I want to avoid. :D But it works for other people!
