my oscar gets called lots of different not so nice names when i'm trying to move him. I, the wall, the floor and even the roof end up covered in water.

but usually he's just "Oscar the grouch"
Then theres "Tigger" the tiger oscar
"Dollar 60" the silver dollar.
"Puss" the catfish
I've got "OJ" the oscar killer (Green terror)
"Marylin Monroe" is his partner
Had "Casper" the friendly black ghost knife fish
who was eaten by "Bazza" or "Gazza" the barramundi (could never tell which one)
and also had "Bert" and "Ernie" the red zebras who passed away after somebody fed them sausage roll.
Thats all I can think of at the minute.

Matt.

I only named a couple of my fish...

My 2 fire eels - Flame (11") and Flash (9 1/2")
Bala Shark - Rhapsody. Not sure why, it just fits his personality.
Rainbow Shark - Sylvester
Albino Rainbow Shark - Fury
And the loaches are part of the Backstreet Boys.

None of the others are named...

Let's see... I never named all my fish... Just ones that seemed to need it. I had 2 CAEs that grew to about 5" each that I called Tweedledee and Tweedledum (dee and dum for short)... RIP and curses on the Oscar that 'et 'em. (too big for my tank, bro knew someone who'd take them, but neglected to mention the Oscar until after they were gone).

My Maroon Clown was named... Guess... Yup... Nemo... By my niece's daughter who loved that movie, and screamed "Nemo!!!" when she saw him in my tank. I had 2 Corys named Cory and Dory, and the only other critter I named was my Coral Banded Shrimp (Coral of course).

DepotFish: Hissing Cockroaches??? Where's my Raid... I'm cringing at the keyboard just typing the name. Eeeeshhh! Most people get freaked out by spiders or snakes, but with me it's roaches... Give me a nice fuzzy Tarantula or a Ball Python instead. LOL
