    Purchased a flametail blenny and a royal gramma at the same time. Named them Lenny and Squiggy. I’m sure most people won’t get it ;)

    My granddaughter names every fish crab snail in the tank. My fault for not getting them a dog.

    My girlfriend names them. Makes it convenient to keep tabs on everyone when doing a head count and it's the only part of the hobby she enjoys - coming up with the names and why she names them that

    Guess you can't tell them to pay up or they'll be sleeping with the fishies. ;Yuck. I know that was bad.

    I have a red lined wrasse named Clouseau - because he inspects everything and finds nothing.

    My purple tang is named Shadow, because from across the room when he's against the back wall it looks like a yellow tang with a missing body.

    My 3 blue/green chromis are named Tres Hombres.

    I'm down to two blue/green chromis. I just call them the twins. It's easier.

    My 5 yo loves naming fish. Even when we're at the LFS he points at a fish and says "I want to name him!"
