Hillstream Loach Name ideas?

Hi,

I just bought a new Hillstream loach and need a name. It's white with black spots and totally gorgeous. He sat on my driftwood and lifted and fluttered his fins and suddenly I thought 'so, that's why they call them butterflies!'

(sorry, it hasn't settled in enough for pics, still running from spot to spot to spot)

My other hillstreams are Scooter (aka skootie or skoot skoot) and Buzzie.

Since Scooter and Buzzie are striped and the the new one is spotted, it's in danger of being called 'Spot' if I don't get more creative help quick!! I don't want to name it spot, I want something that reflects how beautiful it is.

Appreciate your thoughts!!

Sue

Very cute!

Doesn't convery pretty, so I'm gonna hold out for more, but it's certainly more creative than Spot!!

Very clever spot names, but do you relate cows to pretty? I'm sitting waiting for him to show himself (not confident of the sex, but hate calling him 'it'), to see if he could be a Daisy. I don't really like the cow connotation, but Daisies are my favortire flowers, so I'll see if it'll fit.

If he seemed bossier, maybe Monarch. You know, the butterfly? I've also thought just Beauty, but it lacks character. Redford? He was awfully pretty in his day. Is there a more flambouyant pretty boy that might work?

I think Dottie is still in the lead.

He's being very stubborn and hiding somewhere. I'll work on the picture thing.

Thanks!!

Sue

Spanish for little spot or spot.
