My kids name my fish. Hence "Goldie" the Beta and "Micheal" the rahpheal catfish. We haven't named all of them yet.
oh and the african frogs name is "froggy" of course.

Yep - it must be a "girlie" thing - although hubby did name the new betta Lucky :) I have:
Simon - common pleco
Sam - bristlenose
Lucky - the betta
Bloo - elongatus (Loo - his mate - disappeared)
Fred and Gladys - albino sailfin mollies
Zippadedoo, Zippadedah and Zippadedoh - 3 corrys
Mr & Mrs S - swordtails
Mavis - female betta
Pinky and Perky - dwarf gouramis
OB - featherfin catfish (one barb is missing - hence OB)
TB - featherfin catfish (has both barbs)
Tiny - smallest featherfin - (already a good 4")
I still haven't named the aulonocaras - and neons, platties and danios don't get named coz I can't tell them apart!! :D
Am I a complete looney or what!!!! :(

In my tank, there are just too many fish to name lol. Thatss what livebearers do to you lol lol!

If/(hopefully when!) I get a reef tank with just a couple of fish I may well name them, its just not feasible for me to name all my livebearers plus other fish!
