Smile A Proper Introduction

Well, good afternoon fish folk!
The name is Bri-- Brianne for long.
But I don't mind what you really call me.
WhatUpGup, WTG, Gup.. Doesn't matter!

Anywhoo..
I've had fish ever since I was a youngling.
But they were always "mom's fish", or at least it felt that way.
I really started getting into the hobby just a few months back after winning a goldfish at a carnival..
His name was Ronald.
He was a good fish.

..Until he jumped out of his tank one day while I was at school! D:

Since his death, I have added three guppies [two females, one male] and a platy whom I call Sheldon to my 20g hex. [I name all of my fish. Call me weird, call it useless.. I don't care!]

I plan on going to my LFS in about an hour or so..
Any ideas on what other fish I should add?
I'm going to be moving all my fish to my [almost] cycled 10g [sand] and selling the 20g on Craigslist to save up for an even bigger tank.

Can't wait to spend some more time on here!
Peace out.

Hey there!

I name all of my fish too! I can't imagine somebody getting a pet dog and not naming it!

It takes me awhile to name mine though. I have to figure out if they're a girl/boy, then figure out their personality first.

Have a good day!

i would get a bottom feeder like a cory cat, maybe two of them, and just wait until you get the bigger tank to add anything else

Exactly my point!
And yes, I have to observe my new fish first before naming them as well[:
If you're curious, here are their names--
Irvette [meaning "friend of the sea"]
Eldoris [meaning just "of the sea"]
Nova [meaning "a cataclysmic stellar explosion"]

All three are guppies, and Irvette is pregnant, so I should have more soon!

And lastly, there's Sheldon the male painted platy. His name doesn't mean anything.. But he's a wee bit shy so it just sorta fit[: haha
