What do you name your fish?

Here are my fish's names...

Longhorn Cowfish = Tug
Saddleback Clown = Bo
Bi-Color Blenny = Tom (cuz he peeps)
Honey Chromis = Nut (honey nut... get it?) :P
Purple Firefish Goby = Flick


We also have a strange naming scheme for our arrow crabs. We've had four now and the first one was named Bob. Since then we've changed only one letter at a time for each successor. Here's the list in order...

Bob
Rob
Rod
Tod (couldn't break the rules for two d's)

My arrow crab is called Imbecile, ever since he decided to explore the impeller end of a powerhead.

then I have an Electric Blue Hermit I call doofus cause he somehow always ends up stuck on his back, and needs my help.

Thats about it. :\

We have one emerald crab that is significantly bigger than the others and his name is "The Beast." We also used to have a lot of green chromis, and they were a collective (like the Borg) named Bort.

a quick run down of my fishy friends:

Flame Angel - P. Fuego (p.=pez or fish in spanish, and fuego= flame in spanish)
Maroon Gold Stripe Clown- Krusty (krusty the clown get it?, we are Simpson's fans)
Six line Wrasse- Mr. Pink
Gold and Black Chromis- Sarc (MCP's right hand man from TRON)
Blue Chromis- Chromie (guess how we came up with that one !)
Madarine Gobi- Mr. Gobi (he is a male so that was an easy name)
Psychedelic Gobi- Mrs. Gobi (She is a female, so we made them a couple Mr. and Mrs. Gobi, pretty cute huh?!!)
Green Clown Gobi- Gobetta (another play on the actual name of the fish)
Yellow Watchman Gobi- Watchman (another simple name)
A couple of PJ Cardinals- PJ'S (so if you haven't figure it out yet, we basically come up with some fun names, and some pretty easy names based on the actual name of the fish species.)

we have fun nameing our fish, and its cool to see whatevery one else comes up with!

have fun,
Mermaid!!

Yeah, I figured I wasn't the only one who came up with psycho names, haha. Is Mr. Pink an indication that you're also Reservoir Dogs fans? :P
