Just wondering if everyone has names for the inhabitants of their aquariums. I only name the ones I can identify in the 'crowd'; i.e. I do not name all the platys because they all look the same :D . Some of my fishes names are: Shadow, Gepetto, Triton, Tigger, DeNiro, Bruce, Ralph, and Wilson.

Oops, I forgot to mention my 2 bettas, "Ice" (a.k.a. Mr. Grumpy Gills), and Columbus (my 'rainbow fish').

I'd rather move it in this section.
Offtopic Discussion section is not suitable for "fishy" discussions.

I name only a few fish yet. If I can remember, here's the following:
Female bristlenose: Emma
Most dominant Golden Hifin Pigeon discus: Tamison
Male blue ram: Tom
All black kuhli loach: Boromir
(No point naming even the others as they look alike. )
Black Angelfish: Borris

Good news: I'm finally getting more blue rams next week after my lfs got a new batch. Been waiting for 5 months to get them.

The only one I sort of name is my biggest clown loach, which I call Bubba.

Hi Fiona.
What I find weird is "Little Dave". I suppose when your plec gets big, it'll be "Big Dave"?

Take care.
