Smile betta has a new name

so as some of you already know i rescued a betta from walmart yesterday (actually i was looking to get one anyways and i figured he was in hell so i bought his soul back from the devil) and i named him fred, first name that came to mind. The reason i got this guy was so i could move my tropical community tank out of my sons room into our dining room so everyone can enjoy it but also let him still have a tank inhis room...anyways....tonight before bed i was telling justin (my son, he's 4 by the way) that i had named him Fred...he looked at me like i was crazy and flat out told me that was a stupid name. So i asked him what he would like to name the fish and said "Love" wheni asked him why he told me "because he's the color of my heart and i love him".....i just thought it was so adorable and that i would share....

i know for me it is VERY relaxing so i can imagine how it is to a young child....he could be having the worst temper tantrum and get a glimps of the aquarium and just stop and watch it
