what's in a name??

just curious if you name your fish or not. if you do, what are some of their names??

mine are;
moe, joe, persephone, greeny, red guy, meanie, Mr., Mrs., gumby, pokey, and 'Mr. Little jeans'.
those aren't all, but those are the only one's i've named. the rest are all so inconspicuous that i can't tell them apart. but each of the ones i've names are easily recognizable for having some sort of strong characteristic, like size or color that sets them apart from their same-species tank mates.

ok, your turn- what are your fishy names??

The only fish in my house that has a name is Grumpy. He is a Mottled Sleeper Goby that has an eternal frown on his face. He just looks "grumpy".

My Fire Eel's name is Flame, and my Tiger Barbs are the Backstreet Boys. Other than that, no other names. Well, I could name my Red Tail Shark, The Evil One, lol.

Even though it is the same planet, underwater is a whole different world.

I used to name all of my fish, but started getting a bit confused. Now the only two fish with names are my gold sevs Alan and Morris.

i name alot of my fish!

Three spot gourami -raphael- i named him this because his little feelers coming off below on his belly look kinda like a moustache from certain angles
Male Betta -elvis- i got him on an anniversary of elvis's death
Ryukin goldfish -paige- its my sisters name (cmon it was a joke, the fish is fat and if i name it paige im calling her fat ) but shes not fat dont worry
Comet goldfish -hitler- *sold back to a lfs today* he had a little hitler mustache above his mouth and he was really mean.

ive got more fish but they dont have names that i can remember.

In reference to my first reply, I don't think that there are enough names to name every fish in all of my tanks. I would have to make up names litereally.
