New Female Betta

I had an extra tank sitting around and thought why not help a betta. I found this beauty at the local PetCo. She was the smallest and the most pale one of them all. My sister begged me to get her, so I did. Now she's colored up and zipping around her tank. It took a while to take a good picture of her. She now resides in a 2.5g Mini Bow. Happy betta

Here she is:

Any suggestions on a name?

Thanks! I hope that she colors up even more as well. She'll be even happier when her tank is planted. Thanks though

You've inspired me with the bettas... I always go for the brightest prettiest one... Next time I'll do the opposite and save a life.

she definitely a pretty one.... i was thinking for a name maybe sunshine or sunny since she has a bit of sun color tint to her head?? i have a red male betta who seems to have blossomed with beautiful red/blue fins since i got him in dec. i got him at petsmart and he was in blue water and looked like he was a bluish purple but when i put him in his tank he was red which was fine cause i like the reds and blues in bettas... his fins seem to have had a bit of fin rot/fin loss at first and after a bit of TLC his fins seem to be twice the length they were and he seems much healthier. hes very active and a show off at times then he has his down time too but overall hes a joy to have like a 2nd child really and my 3 yr old helps me take care of him...

Thanks, I love buying bettas. It's very addictive! I felt the same way... and then I bought one.

That's probably the safest way to go with bettas, the brightest prettiest betta. But I love the bad looking ones, I always feel like that they need a second chance even if they don't last long I gave them that extra time. However there is that elusive diamond in the rough, which I think I got!

Oh, I really like that name! She does have the glimmer that is very aquamarine... and my 'name' on here is AQUAkai

Awww... I love the happy endings to the sad betta stories. I love the names you picked out. Now the decisions are piling up! I bet you 3yr old loves the betta, my sister does. Thanks though for the compliments though on her!

How cute. Is she a crowntail?
Honestly, if it was me I would name her Carbon (like a diamond, get it?), but thats because I am a dork. Lol.

Awww I love the name Carbon. It's dorky! Love it!!! To tell you the truth I was thinking of Elizabeth (from pride and prejudice) or Jane (Jane Austen/Goodall). But Carbon is so unique! She is a crown tail.
