Very nice names. Sorry to hear about your Mickey & Mini. I have 2 Gold Veil Tail Angelfish by the same name.
They are probably two very common fish names.

I thought I was clever. Michael is the black shark. Jackson is the White shark.

We tried to name all of ours as we started getting fish. Our firsts were 3 neons that we called the 3 musketeers. Then two headlight tail lights names Zippy and Skippy. Obviously the one was really fast, so there came zippy.

Two Platys are named Wiggles and Jiggles (they wiggle when they swim) Two other Platys names Sunny (all orange almost) and Spot(orange, but spots on her). Our snail is Snaily. I dunno? And then we ran out of names for the other 4. And my Bala shark, is Sharkey.

My other tank we have 5 serpar tetras and 5 silver tip tertras. We just say thats the terrorist tank, because everything we've tried to put in there with them, eventually dies.

My 3 year old named a plant snail in the tank slugsy! Why I have no idea.
I'm glad to see naming each fish is common. I'm not a loon lol.
