My common pleco is named "Speckles" (by my fiance and sister). Since that sounded very weak for such a strong specimen as he, I named my bushynose pleco "Tank" to kind of make up for the name "Speckles". My mom likes to call him "Uggo" though because she thinks he is ugly, in a cute way. (If that makes sense lol)

i love this thread! i am getting some great name ideas..
Here are my fish
the cichlid crew:
Electri blue Johannii: Johan or Fidget Britches
Mrs Johan: Stumpy
Black red Moorii: Sid vicious fishus
Yellow Lab: Mohawk
Jewels, Mr and Mrs: spot and dot
red Zebras: i still can't decide on a name, because they just don't seem right. I have had a few but they don't stick
Acei: Joey

Then the community tank. They aren't really named, but they get "jacka.." a lot. Like seriously, did you just get stuck in the GRASS? Jacka..

The male molly sometimes gets Ivana (Humpalot) But i can't keep names straight for them.. It's mostly the fat one, or the mickey mouse over there or Clown features.. you know.

fish names

I bought quite a few comet goldies to get my tank started and ended up with just 1 of the original group and one minnow. then bought 3 larger comets once the tank was cycled. my son decided they needed names.

the small comet goldie is "Tiny Tim" he is really small like 1 inch
the minnow is "Fastie Thinstripe"
of the larger comets one is mostly gold and thus named "Goldie"
the other just have a spot of gold on the top of their head, they are the twins
"Millie and Vanilli"

This is a good post to end using fish to cycle a tank. Fishless is the way to go as far as cycling your AQ.
This is a fun thread, but we need to also learn what's good and what's barbaric.

honestly I don't like being called barbaric. I understand how you feel about killing fish and maybe I was a little arrogant to think I could cycle the tank without losing any, but to call someone barbaric in their first endeavor to even have an aquarium is a little harsh.
No I won't ever cycle a tank with live fish again, for one it not worth the headache, and two my son didn't like the fish dying. but don't think that you had anything to do with that. I do think it is unethical. And don't like killing fish. I was just a little naive I guess, geez its my first tank.
