My gorgeous betta!!

Firstly thanks to everyone for thier advice over my last couple of threads.
Here is the man himself! He seems to be settling in ok bit has moments of swimming madly up and done (I guess thats normal).

The last dilemma.......what name!!!

Oh and I'm thinking a black background for the tank???

Oh my gosh what a beauty! So colorful like a bag of my favorite candy; Skittles! I read something about a fish tank being crammed with all different colors of fish and the tank being called "skittles". You got lucky and have a betta, one single fish with all the colors! I love this fish!

I just bought a betta that is almost identical to yours! I found him at our local Walmart sitting in a cup in absolute filth. He is getting used to his new 10g and he seems to love it. Here he is

BTW, what type of sand is in your tank? I really love it!

It's caribsea black sand, requires hardly any rinsing at all - if I must admit I didn't even rinse this lot before adding *smack hand* :O

I've considered trying that kind, or blasting sand. I can't make up my mind.
