I'm really glad to know lots of other people don't name their fish. Everyone I talk to about my tank asks me this question and they all think I'm weird that I don't name them.

I'm the same as Nils.. Schooling fish all look the same so they don't get names.

I named my cichlids, puffer, dojo loaches, discus, and fire belly toads though.

Do you give names to your fish?

My goldfish have names as follows:

Tank A:
Mrs Peabody-stripes
Spotty
Lightening McQueen Porche (AKA Gus)
Goldie

Tank B:
Jasper
Rupert
Oscar

Tank C:
Dennis
Colin

I wish the fishies knew their names.

I know that I do! I have:

Rupert - platy fry
Theodore Grekovich - black skirt tetra
Daisy - platy
Chrysanthemum - platy
Troy - platy
Tulip - platy
Shiny - glowlight tetra

I have lots of other fish but they just don't have names yet.

My fish in the past were named Nick, Vincent, Diana, and Clue. My current fish are named Leid and Howl (as in Howl's Moving Castle).

It's not allowed here. People in my household have, on several occasions named fish, all of which died mysteriously. My most recent death was my prized wild cacatuoides male, which I later found out was named cookies n cream...

I don't name them either. I get too attached then maybe when they die I get more sad. But it does seem to jinx the fish.
