Only 2 fish so far :

Maroon Clown - Eric (From "That 70's Show" - son of Red, get it ? Reaching I know )
Kole Tang - Holmes (As in Sherlock Holmes due to the magnifying glass circle around the eye )

Both our cleaner shrimp are called Russkie

I have also named one of my Astraea snails "Don King" as he has a fuzzy growth of algae standing on top of his shell

60G Freshwater - not planted
Rena Filstar XP2 Canister Filter
2" Gravel substrate
10 Danios (mixed Zebra and Gold)

it's weird, there are several topics that I have started, didn't get much of a response, then the same topic shows up later on, by someone else, and everyone participates... oh well... I'd think this would be a good general discussion topic, or lounge, unless you salties want to keep to yourself...?
So far I have never named a pet, part of it is because all the pets I've owned wouldn't be able to know there name if I said it a million times to them, and I also don't like attaching myself tooo much to them. I find when I name them I get to attached, then eventually they die... I know.., part of life... I came close to naming a toad I had because it was really cool. I could get it to eat out of my hand... then it died before I could name it... I have too many guppies, I'm sure not going to name them... I suppose if I ever get a pet that really gets close to my heart, then I might name it... Maybe once I setup my 55, after I move, I will find that perfect pet... maybe it will be one of my snakes....... eh, who knows...

I haven't come up with very creative names for my fish like a lot of you people.So far i've got:
Foxface - Yellow guy
Saddle back clown - Brown guy
Pair of Percula Clowns - The Clown bros
And I haven't named any of my inverts except one snail who is always on its back. So i've named it Surrey. Which is kind of an inside joke that people from The Lower Mainland will get.

I ask for advice from my wife for names so if you like the name, it was my wife, if you think it is stupid, it was my choice.

2 ocalleris clowns- Aragon and unnamed (Arwen passed over the river)
2 dominoe damsels- Urlacher and Favre (the exception is that the stupid named one was my wife's idea (Favre))
1 yellow tailed damsel- Newman (#12) (Kenseth found the checkered flag)
1 electric blue damsel- Yzerman
1 cleaner shrimp- Gimli (a shrimp)
1 fire shrimp- Fuego
1 blue-legged hermit- Azul
1 emerald crab- Verde
1 large and ugly turbo snail- Smiegel (and when its being stupid- Golum)
1 margarita snail- Margarita (Daquiri was a red-footed snail that bottomed out)

I have 1 unnamed bta, cleaner shrimp and 3 peppermint shrimp and bunch of other snails.
