Fish Novel

i know this might sound lame, but i am thinking of writing a novel about fish, a bit like nemo, but with goldfish and other coldwater/temperate fish. I am having my real goldfish as a character, his name is Jaws, he will play a lead role. i was just wondering if there were any suggestions about character names and a plot line from the aqua experts themselves. here is a picture of Jaws

Maybe an idea is that there is this goldfish in this community tank, and no one respects him. But when his owner has to do a science project he chooses the goldfish. The goldfish wants to make his owner proud and win first place. And the fish in the tank try to help him. But he finds out that the owner is notorious for accidentally killing his fish during projects. Can he survive the project, win first place and truly win the respect of his tank mates?

Good luck on the story!

I think a cool story would be about how the goldfish is in a community tank and gets bullied because of his indifference and the ditzy owner notices so he puts him in a tiny aquarium bowl. Jaws then has to learn to survive in those conditions while trying to befriend his old tank mates in the big tank and eventually finding a way back into it.

For characters, you could do all his tank mates and the owner

i could have a lead bully and that could be a panda moor, i like those and if they were humans i sense they would be *****y. i know it sounds weird but fish have still got personality's and you can judge a book by its cover

Maybe a character can be Finch a feisty Tiger barb, his character could be tough and the hardest character for Jaws to win over.

Sheila: An elegant angelfish, while she is a tad snobby and self centered but has a kind heart once you get to know her.

Bolt: a bright yellow Glofish with a bright and joyous personality to match. he is kind and easygoing and stays out of drama.

Fire Fin: Fire for short. A orange and red guppy with a dramatic full tail. He is stuck up and is a beautiful fish but on the inside his heart is less than kind.

Mundungous: A large fat pearl scale goldfish. He is pretty friendly but never tease him about his name! You could add a scene in the story about how Jaws accidentely offends him and starts his new addition to the tank at a rocky start.

Martha: Mundungous's wife, a sweet little fish, she is the mother fish of the tank and loves caring for the tank mates.

If you like these suggestions i can make up some more characters for you.

I really do like those idea's, could you maybe include an elder panda moor, seems quite selfish and snobby, like a main bully?

Red Foo: the leader of the tank. He's been alive longer than anyone. If you know him he dislikes you. If he doesn't know you he hates you. He has battle wounds but wont tell anyone what their from.
In the end Jaws could ask Red Foo why he hates him so much. And he could reply he is jealous of Jaws young age and his naive behavior. He missing being young and it was naive behavior that gave him wounds.
