Mr. Wigglesworth recently died and I got a new fish... my sister said I should name it Birdie (I have no idea why), but I liked Lucy, so she's Birdie Lou

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)

I named my Dwarf Neon Grouami Ryu, and the pleco is Miss Pleco. None of the other fish have names except the Bettas. With so many of the same type, I really can't tell most of them apart.

I got a new guy yesterday an adult Geophagus Surinamensis he is stunning and I've named him Lord Percy. I figured as he's my best fish to date he needed to become The Lord Of The Tank, lol

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.

The measure of a person is what they do with what they've been given.

My only fish so far is a Goldfish my daughter won at the fair....He's mostly white with an orange dot on his head...

She wanted to name him Whitey, but i thought that was a bit politically incorrect, so we decided on Cracka...

Of course, since he IS a fair won goldfish, his nickname is Goner
