Spot(white goldfish with orange spot on forehead), Maybelline(Spotted white/orange goldfish with red lips), Hitler(pale goldfish who FORMERLY had a nice little black mustache going on, but grew out of it), Shadow and the Twins, a throwback dark brown goldfish and 2 oranges I cant tell apart. The rest are nameless, and none the worse for wear.

Yep. Every single fish in all 4 tanks are named. The inverts are named too.

No, I really haven't. Unless a fish just has a really different personality. Or if I get a puffer or something like that I'd probably name it. But when I get my community fish I doubt I'll ever name them. Be way too many and too identical.

Yeah, it gets hard after a while! Lol. I like themes. I have sets of fish where the names all rhyme or start with the same first letter. I get annoyed at my boyfriend because he can't tell them all apart.

Yep, my daughter and I name our fish! The schooling fish - not so much - too many and can't tell who is who - but the others? Definitely!

I can't help but name mine. When I was waiting for my 28g to get set up and I had my eye on my flowerhorn at the store, I had already named him Sebastian. THen I had my two bettas- Marlboro for the veil tail since he is the color of marlboro reds (used to be a smoker...) and Wizard because he is all white and well... I live in the south so I thought it would be ironic. Then Xavier my little Senegalese bichir and Gigantor the huge Killifish. And all the rest don't have names. If you could tell the difference between danios and rainbow fish (well I kind of can...), then more power to you.
