Just wondering if everyone has names for the inhabitants of their aquariums. I only name the ones I can identify in the 'crowd'; i.e. I do not name all the platys because they all look the same :D . Some of my fishes names are: Shadow, Gepetto, Triton, Tigger, DeNiro, Bruce, Ralph, and Wilson.

Oops, I forgot to mention my 2 bettas, "Ice" (a.k.a. Mr. Grumpy Gills), and Columbus (my 'rainbow fish').

I'd rather move it in this section.:mrgreen:
Offtopic Discussion section is not suitable for "fishy" discussions.:bluelaugh:

I name only a few fish yet. If I can remember, here's the following:
Female bristlenose: Emma
Most dominant Golden Hifin Pigeon discus: Tamison
Male blue ram: Tom
All black kuhli loach: Boromir
(No point naming even the others as they look alike.:crazy: )
Black Angelfish: Borris

Good news: I'm finally getting more blue rams next week after my lfs got a new batch. Been waiting for 5 months to get them.:welldone:

Hi Fiona.
What I find weird is "Little Dave". I suppose when your plec gets big, it'll be "Big Dave"?:thumbsup:

Take care.:thumbsup:

Nope I have not named all of my fish! The one's I havnt named I just called then like ' little neon' or hey angel! to my angelfish.
But...My bala is named ' Hercules ' and i think i have named my pleco ' chip ' because when ever i throw an algea wafer in ( looks like a lil chip to me ) he will sneek up to it and when my clowns will be snacking it he like attacks it and its all his! It's the greatest thing to watch. And its so cute because than he will back off for about a few minutes and let my loaches get some and he's at it again!... But I think when I get my cardinals or whatever other schooling fish for my last fish I will be sure to name them!

Hi Brie,
Look at this way. If you post your fish's names here, it will help you remind the names of your fish.:mrgreen:
