This is a discussion on What do you name your fish? within the Off Topic Discussions forums, part of the The Tropical Fish Keeping Community category; -->
Mr. Wigglesworth recently died and I got a new fish... my sister said I should name it Birdie (I have no idea why), but ...
All of my fish have names except the loaches because I can't tell them apart (I just call them all squee). Let's just say my boyfriend, sister, and mother said I will never be allowed to name my children. Fish names are:
Koi: Byakko (shiro utsuri), Suzaku (kohaku), Genbu (shiro matsuba), Umi (showa), Halloween (aka bekko), Kurama (tancho sanke)
Goldfish: Goldeen (red and white ryukin), Seaking (calico veiltail)
Bettas: Poofer (veiltail) and Knucker (half moon)
Lets see....my Platy's name is Pumpkin because she was very pregnant when I bought her, my Danios are all named Steve(:P), my Pleco is named Tingle because of his oddness, and my betta....is a betta XD Posted via Mobile Device
LOL I like this :)
I have a honey gourami called pepper.... (pepper-gourami, peperami)
then 2 more i got recently, needed to stick to the theme so they are called vinegar and salt!
1 Betta called shikari
also my pleco called georgina, (i originally had 2, one called george and one called georgina!)
I name my oscars after stars or astro-related people/things (due to their scientific name). My first oscar was named Buzz (after Buzz Aldrin the astronaut), My present oscar is Betelgeuse (pronounced "Beetlejuice") after the red giant star in the belt of Orion.
I don't think 'He' cares whether I call him that or Joe Blow though.
