The same reason you would name a child born with such deficiencies it disables them from responding. Because you care.

And no, I'm not comparing fish to that of a human. Just a though.

If I had a 75 Gal. aquarium so I could have ONE Oscar , then I would probably name him . But trying to name each and every fish in a shoal when all are basically a mirror image of the other like all of my Serpae Tetra would be an act of futility . Even more so if you had several aquariums with even more different species of schooling fish . I guess one could just call them all Fred and/or Wilma .

Agreed. The two goldies and pleco are easy. The 4 panda corys all look identical.

My fish tank is like project mayhem, only in death do they receive a name.
His name is Robert Paulson. :p

I named my betta Red Eyes Black Dragon because he has similar colors and red eyes just like the Yugioh card. My other two are Soromon (my sister named, from lord of the rings) and little mommy because she was a breeder fish from petsmart but she was getting old so they sold her, which was kinda mean. I have had her for about 5 months and shes doing just fine.
