I was in chat yesterday with some folks (you know who you are...) and we came to discussing fish names, (the ones we give individual fish rather than an intellectual discussion about classifications) and we came to the conclusion that people have quite an idiosyncratic taste in what they call their fish, and i was wondering what the rest of you think on the subject. Do you go for naming them after things, or just gut feeling, or what?
For the record the fish i have named are:
2 angels - Schopenhauer and Nitzche
Clarence the Ancistrus
Betty and Doris the Kribs
Brian the Plec.
Raistlin and Claudius the ADF's (sadly deceased.) Apparantly Raistlin is a geeky name, my mate named him, an i can't remember where he got the name from.
and, most originally of all, Loachy 1 and Loachy 2 the Yoyo loaches.
Oh, and Thermi the Blue lobster.
What names you gone for?
(EDIT: oops, i meant to put this in Off Topic Discussions, not too organised today... Please move it for me!)
