Some of my fish have names. When I got the first tank and only had six fish it was fine, now I don't bother. My SDs are Benedict and Florentine (cause they look like weird eggs) my trilineatus are referred to as Geronimo and the magical band of fools. The panda cory is Baby, my sisters both tried to name my hatchet (Pacman/Eduardo) and the other 32 fish and snails are called whatever comes to mind depending on what they're doing at the moment: turd, goofball, whack job, little guy, etc.

I don't now- when I only had a beta in college I did.

I am assuming my son who is 17 months now will want to name them once he is older

Hi Mad Dog! Thanks! We try to have fun with it for sure. And the names have to fit the fish, they aren't arbitrary. It's one of my favorite parts of getting a new fish

Talking Fish names

Never really put much effort into names of fish. My snails and Ghost shrimp have names. all the ghost shrimp have French names (Philippe , Etienne etc) My snails are usually names around speed/haste (Chop chop, PDQ etc.)

I only named the fish I could easily tell apart (i.e. the Betta I had)
