Here's a pic of him , he is in a TEMPORARY 1 gallon right now until I can get him a 2.5 or 10 gallon ( whichever I have room for ) , but I was just wondering if you guys could help me name him ? I like Japanese and unique names

Wow, he's beautiful, love the transparency at the edge of the fins... The Japanese print The Wave from the Edo period (1800's) comes to mind. The artist's name is Hokusai.

Really nice betta you got there. Easy on the dechlorinator x. What about wingchung. Lol.
Fish die belly upward and rise to the surface. It's their way of falling.

I've always thought Sekai was really pretty- it means world in Japanese. If you really like Japanese words, just go to google translate, type in random words in english and have them translated until you find one that sounds cool. Hana is pretty too... it means flower.

He's so pretty!
