I'm now the proud owner of Depot, Skip, Suerte, Kalooki, Caddis, Aphid, Ryu, Cho, Zipper, Thirteen, Horace, Walden, Asher, Little Red, Angel, Mr. Twinbar, Hellraiser, Milly, Bob Dole, and numerous unnamed fish. I can tell them all apart except the loaches.

I have a clown loach that I had to name Krusty after the Simpsons, my red tailed shark is named Shadow, and my pleco is named Boris. I haven't named all my fish, just the ones with the most personality. I have an albino irridescent shark I named Typhoid Casper jokingly because he brought a terrible case of ick into my tank right when I bought him. He survived but the moniker kinda stuck.

Okay, because of this thread I have now named my Betta "Shim-Wah-Do-Haa"... the only people who might get that are fans of the Jerky Boys.

I name almost all of my fish.
Quote:
We don't reuse names when the fish dies
Me neither. I actually used to keep a log of all the fish I had, so I wouldn't re-use names.
People are amazed that I name all of them. At one point I had about 50 fish and every one of them had a name. Some of the pics in my gallery have the names of my fish.
Here's my list:
Gold betta- Petunia
Blue betta- Treu Bleu Fu, The kung fu master
Blue prawn- Anwar Johnson

In the 29 community tank:
4 emporer tetras- Bandit, Rabbit, Amarillo, and shortstop
yo-yo loach- Melvin Merlin Gremlin (Yes, some have full names)
Khuli loach- Coolio
upside-down catfish- Tipsy
Red-finned lepordinus pleco- Mr. Mango
Guppy- Mama Chavez
3 neons- zip, and zuppy not a guppy (haven't named the 3rd one)
And a couple unnamed- 4 baby guppies, 1 Austallian Rainbow

In the 29 planted:
2 Discus- Roxy and Diva
black khuli loach- Thunder
Gold nugget pleco- Kwame
Pristella tetra- Stank

In the 55:
Brown african knife fish- Dark Invader
upside-down catfish- Ledbelly
eclipse sun cat- Frankie
spotted pictus- Ezequiel
angelfish- Drama
African butterflyfish- Rocky
Mystery loach- creek
kribensis- Spooky
3 gold severums- Toby, Lucas, and Mellow Yellow
All I have in my SW tank is a bunch of snails, 1 anemone shrimp, and 2 corals. They do not have names.
I think that's everybody

Learned my lesson the other day, don't ask friends and family for name suggestions, you'll get names like Bob, George, and Matt. Sorry if you use those names, but to me they are reserved for spiders right before you kill them and just don't cut it for fish.
