Is your saying at the bottom of your post from Finding Nemo? LOL I thought I recognized it!!! I have 2 kids, so I've watched Nemo soooo many times!!! As for fish names, the funniest we had was The Muffin Man! He was a Black Veiled Angelfish, who recenlty died of unknown causes My 3 year-old daughter named him (from watching Shrek!) As for others...here they are:

The Pig (our fast growing Marble Angel)
MinI Pig (our little Marble Angel)
Cory & Dory (our Emerald Cory cats)
Monster (our large Pleco)
Little Monster (our little Pleco)
Mary (named after me-our Red-Tailed female shark (she can be happy or moody )-a little personal, sorry
Cornel (named after hubby- our very sassy male Velvet Swordtail LOL)-waaay too personal
I have more fish, but as of yet, they're not named

I currently don't have fish, but while I'm waiting for my tank to cycle so I can have fish, I'll tell you the names of the "old" fish I've had.

Kissy (goldfish--named because he would suck on the side of his tank)
Sunny (goldfish)
Shadow (goldfish)
Snowy ('nuther goldfish)
Solar Flare (you guessed it. his stripe looked like a solar flare...so I was the only kid who paid attention in science class, whatever)
Muddy (nope. this one's a chinese algae eater)
Woodie (chinese algae eater...as in driftwood, NOT toy story!)
Starry (got the algae eater part right, but this one's a golden)
Moon (not even close. this one's a betta)

I'll tell you the names of my platies, bettas, and cory cats once I get them...which I hope is SOON! fishphreak_4, I love your fish picture! (totally random ) I'm done now.

Love all the names...... I know my little boy will one day name all our fish, but he's only 1.5yrs old, so for now I get to! My two black skirt tetras are named Sambo (the big one) and Rambo (the little one).

wow joe, those sure are creative names you got there. I wish I had a pearl danio. I guess not many people name their fish, because I only have 9 replies. now I feel like some weirdo for naming every fish I get. :-[ oh well. but I did get a new pleco. his name is Tiny Bubbles, because before I feed him he blows tiny bubbles. it's kinda funny.

Don't feel like a wierdo. I name my pets, I talk to my pets more than to people, I spend more time cleaning cages than my room or myself...you get the point. I think all of us fish people are a little bit, well,

Yes, we are a little bit, well....yeah

I've only named a few of the fish I've had. I tend to only name my favorites.

My old (and massive) oranda goldfish I named Maximus.

I had a betta named Leviathan (Job chapter 41 KJV)

I have a bearded dragon named Bahamut (I know, not a fish, but he's staring at me right now so I thought I'd mention him.)

And my favorite, favorite fish is a red turqoise discus named Squishy-Mo, but we all call him Squishy.

I stopped naming my fish. Each time I do, that fish dies. Now they're nameless but alive!

Asparagus...now that's a great name...but I do have to ask: How did you come about naming a neon tetra Asparagus? And how do you know which is which? All of my schooling fish are identical! (except this really fat rummy-nose who is missing his dorsal fin...he was born that way)

I didnt name my tetras only one which had lasted from my previous school so I named him Little Trooper.
Red-tail Shark- Fat Tony
Feather Fin Catfish - Scooter (Used to be very quick small and scared, now big and fat)
Corydorus Sterbai- Cory
Bristlenose catfish - Flathead
angelfish - Goldie (but I call her idiot and dumbo cause she annoys me)
Angelfish - Sherby
Male Guppy - Senior Guppman
The rest are just the names of their respective species as I can't think of good names as yet

well, to tell the truth, its really hard to tell my fish apart, but all my tetras are different sizes because I have been feeding them different foods until I put them all in the same tank, so some are fat and others are small. Asparagus actually eats asparagus when I put a little bit in. it doesn't hurt or poison him. actually, I think it makes him healthier! he is bigger than the others.

Hey...feeding them asparagus....I'm going to try that. I bet my discus will love it. So, if I feed my discus asparagus...can I call him Squishy-Mo Asparagus? Just asking permission
