Do you give names to your fish?

I only have my fish for three days and my wife is already giving them names.

Yes, people thought that I was crazy for telling my two ottos apart but when you know their unique personalities it just eventually happens...so
Wurlitzer, Peacock, Igneous, Starlight, Tiger, Bozo, Moss, Arrow, Swish, Trinket, Gator, Starburst, Marigold, Sunshine, Yang, Pearl, Touchstone, Hilton, Steel, and Magi.
I know that for some people, they are just not into it but I love knowing them all.

I have enough problems keeping track of my four legged animals with names. Too many tanks, fishes, and other influences to be distracted by. But all fish come to the surface when I enter the room without being called.

Exactly, lol. We're never far off in agreement. 2 GSD's, Kiwi and Simon, 1 hamster "Monster", cats consist of Corona, Ginger, Grey, Havoc, Miracle, Little, and Ditto. All of them rescues and the last two are the younger brother and sister of the middle three that were all found by my late GSD Turbo, who met my other late GSD Timber and got to pal around together before they both crossed the rainbow bridge. (If any of that makes sense.) Then there's Simons brothers and sisters 3 miles away. David, Savanah, Georgia, Kate, and mom that I can't remember and 2 more I can't remember till they come bite (more of a nibble) me. That's when they're close enough the see their tags.

He looks like a Louis. He's way too involved in what people are doing outside of the tank to not have a name.
