I got one called Smelly Cat, Just because Friends was on TV and Phoebe started singing it right after we asked out loud "What should we call him?"

We don't have names for most of them, since we have multiples of most of our fish, plus we got really attached to our first fish, a male Betta (he died from dropsy 4 months later it was awful) and we named him, so we try not to get too attached anymore and not naming them helps.

But... our male guppy I call him gupp gupp. Our bn pleco is called Mr. Algea, and our female betta is Miss Fish or Miss Betta. The male betta is my mother in laws, and he is called Red

Everyone else is just called by their fish name. We have 1 amano shrimp that is smaller than the other 5, and he is a bit mean to the other shrimp sometimes, so, we call him little a****** sometimes. lol.

Most of my fish don't get names anymore, sometimes I'm a little sad thinking about it. I can tell my two dwarf puffers apart so I may name them. But my fiance and I have an angelfish named Flint! Originally we wanted a pair and were going to name them "Opal and Flint" but decided to just get one instead. We've also got two small bronze cories that are collectively known as tweedledee and tweedledum.

I love naming my fish! My GBR is named Steven and I sometimes end up yelling at him when he misses a blackwork that took me 5 minutes to fish out of a jar. My puffer is named Richard, my crayfish is named Wilson, but I don't name my catfish or shrimp because it takes too long to remember.

I'm constantly trying to think of names for my fish even if I can't 100% distinguish them xD
