New female betta!

Hi,

Just got me a new female betta for my 30 gal! I saw her at the lfs and she was the last one in the tank, so I felt sorry for her and took her home. She's still looking a bit beat up from being at the lfs, but she'll recover. And I know i should qt her, but I don't have the means to do so

Here's a picture! Any ideas for names? I was thinking of naming her after my ex-girlfriend, but how would I explain that to a new girlfriend that will come around ?

Update:
I got her to eat today. I tried some flakes yesterday, but she didn't take them. Today I tried some frozen bloodworms and she just couldn't pass up on them . She ate maybe 10 bloodworms! (The rest of them were happily taken by my keyhole cichlids) She must have been starved eating that much.
She's hanging out at the top half of the time, the other half she's still exploring the tank.
Looks like she will be fine in there

Sorry smallfry, Gweniviere is too hard to translate to dutch. But good thought though. Now if only I had a king Arthur for her....

I think I'm going to refer to her as: Lucy
