    Tonight My girlfriend and I made a trip to our LFS, of course not planning to buy anything at all.Though low and behold, here they had ordered TONS of new Betta. With there being a large number of Crowntails (my new fish love) I just had to have one. So we ran to Wallyworld, I grabbed a new 5 gallon tank, ran back to said LFS and then broke down and bought two Betta.

    I picked a steal blue betta, and my girlfriend picked a cream/red ?tail. She has named the cream/red Skittles. I have not yet named the Steal/blue so I need some suggestions. The Bluey Black is Stuka the 1st Betta

    Steel/Blue (noname)



    Skittles



    Stuka



    Please give me some suggestions for the Steel/ Blues name


    Thanks for looking. :)
    I may not be perfect, but I'm canadian and that's good enough!

    They look beautiful!

    How about Azul? I like using color names, perhaps you could just call him Blu. :)

    Wow, anyone know the breed of "skittles"? That almost looks like an albino of some type, very attractive!

    Azul sounds great! All exotic and the like, steel could work, cant say I'm crazy about it. Heading along with Stuka's WW2 planes theme, I thought of Junker, haha. Stuka and Junker, has a nice ring to it. Still undecided.

    Skittles, is a delta tail? Cool. Hey I was wondering, if I could have a blind in one eye fish. As I did my pre buy fishy check (eyes fully black, fins untorn, poopies in the cup, sleak bowels) I did notice his one eye is black in the middle with a blue ring. You can actually see it in the picture, his other eye is completely black. I passed him for purchase, my girlfriend was too excited for me to say no. Of course I could be overreacting but he sure wasnt interested in food this morning. I wiggled and dabbed my finger to get his attention right in front of his face to come get the pellets, he didnt budge, then I wiggled my finger an inch in front of his face, nothing, closer yet almost touching, he freaks, as if finally seeing me, and heads to his cave.

    Then again....Mr Junker/Steel/Azul/Titus.... Just ingnored me completely showing off/flaring around the tank. That ones got alot of anger, he does :P

    Could it be that both of their tanks are unheated and they are just not hungry today. Too cold, Listless...? Maybe we should purchase anouther new 5 gallon for skittles, and then heaters on top of that? Anyway to make the food more tantalising?

    Anyhow thanks so far for all the help. Having a community forum with all this vast knolledge is so comforting. I need answers I just come here... Awwwww GIMME A BIG HUG hahaha

    Hug given...did ya feel it? I think the heaters would be a good idea. Bettas like their temp. around 80 degrees and stable. You mentioned buying Skittles his own tank...please tell me you haven't put them both in the same tank. Fish can be blind in one eye, or even both eyes. Lovely fish, BTW!!!!

    Hugs!! LOL Yes heaters are good! around 75 degrees or less Betta get listless. Also keep in mind that it make take some time for your new finned friends to adjust, and be "normal". Moving can stress them. As for being blind in one eye, I am sure that they can be. Maybe he was just being stubborn too. LOL
