I have a red zebra named lucifer because he is an evil demon fish that has killed and eaten every tankmate so far. My husband named his last tank mate ( a cobalt blue), Fluffy. He said with the name Fluffy the fish had to learn to fight to keep from being picked on.

I don't name fish. I call them by their common or scientific name, depending on the fish (and whether I can pronounce their scientific name or now ). Naming fish, IMO, is bad luck. Call me superstitious.

i don't name my fish..... Because i don't have any yet but when i eventually get my tank ready and filled with fish i will most probably name them with retro gaming names eg. Mario Sonic Pacman etc.

I don't name my fish either...however I do have a huge RCS that I call Big Momma. lol She's very colorful and the largest shrimp I have, so very easy to tell her a part from everyone else.

My male percula is named Baldwin, for those that have seen Team America he thinks he is the greatest actor in the world. He does many strange tricks, so the name kind of stuck. My wife named our Orange knobby creamsicle. Lol

When we had angelfish, I had nicknames for most of them. For instance, there was "bully", "fin" (for the one with bad fins), and "big boy" (the largest).

But actual names?? Nah that's a lot to keep straight...
