Hholly, the second picture of Blue Barry is awesome. I love how he is looking at the camera.
For a name, I suggest Inky because it looks like he was an orange betta that had a blue pen explode on him while he was writing his memoirs.

Aw, thanks! I like Inky, but he's so aggressive I'm not sure it fits him. He's not really a "cute" Betta. More a fighter. I'll start a new thread on it.

Thanks, I'm not sure, but I think he's a dragon scale. I wish. Could get a better pic of him.

Hholly, your blue and orange boy really is spectacular. He looks painted. <3 As far as names go, I like Cthulu. Still implies tentacles and ink, but a bit more aggressively.

We picked up two more boys today for free off craigslist. They were living in bowls the size of a drinking glass. The big one (and he is REALLY big!) with the dumbo ears has fin rot on one of his pectoral fins which will hopefully clear up with some clean warm water and a bigger home. He's also clearly struggling a little bit to swim. While he still swims OK and can get up to the surface without a problem, even a little current really just drags him around. I had to turn his filter off for now, hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to find a better option for him. The other blue and white one seems to be pretty healthy, but hard to photograph.

Those guys are both lovely. Good job getting them into nicer homes.
