    Hey wondering how many people give their fish names... seems like everyone names their bettas but not other fish.
  2. MysticalNew MemberMember

    I not only name them, I also change their names every year.

    I have far too many fish to name and identify them individually (some of them, like the Pictus)

    I don't name them, but my son named his Neon Blue Dwarf Gourami "Bubba" because he'll occasionally chase the other fish away from his spot. He calls him "Bubba the Bully". :D

    lol wow! cool!

    you rename them every year? wow!

    Yeah, I'm a little crazy. I figure it's alright though, they'll never know that they've have 6 names in their life hehehe. Bob figured out how to say his name, then again all the other fish say it too. (Just mouth the word Bob, you'll get it)

  14. NevilleWell Known MemberMember

    yes, i name my fish, but didn't name my female guppies, they all look same to me.
  15. inuyasha_lover_21Well Known MemberMember

    I only name a few. Like my anemone and when i get the clown he will get a name but my corys in my FW tank wont get a name because I have 11 of them.
  16. NevilleWell Known MemberMember

    i named my betta Mr. Blue....he is all blue.

    some of the guppies have names which my son came up with.....they're called 'me' 'nemo' 'dory'. the older plec is just called mrs. bristlenose, and the loach is called mr. they even count as names?! but the danios and tetras etc all the same, so it would be impossible. the new baby plecs are nameless at the mo as we cant tell them apart. maybe when they get bigger we can tell them apart? if a girl and boy that would be ace!!!

    I don't name them out of superstition. I figure as long as I just call them by their description ('fatty', 'circus freak', 'ginger head', 'brown sucker', etc. you get the gist), they'll do fine, but the day I give them a name...

    My girlfriend believs that giving any of your fish name is certainly sealing there spot in davey jones locker. I have not tested this theory as we have not lost a fishdoe to date.

    We name all our fish, even the otos & corys when i can hardly tell them apart. lol.
