    I used to name guppies, but keeping track of 3,487,652 names got really tedious.

    So I had a tank/livestock makeover, and a chain reaction water problem. Updated name list:
    Female bettas: Icicle, unnamed green/blue/black little one
    Blue danio: Streak
    Leopard daino: Cheetah
    Celestial pearl danios: Little Dipper, Shrew
    Sparkling gourami: Jewel
    Salt-and-pepper cories: Salt & Pepper
    Julii cory: Maze
    Longfin zebra, leopard, and 2 blue danios: Are yet to be named
    Three pygmy cories: Buzz, Hover, Hum (named for their swimming style)

    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.
    29 sw: Damsel, shrimpgoby, pistol shrimp, waspfish
    65 fw: Rummies, glowlight tetras, pencilfish, darters, ottos, f betta, goby, dwarf gourami, ninjas
    29 fw: Chili rasboras, pygmy cories, P. Gertrudae

    I have most of my fish named. Only my 4 bloodfin tetras and most of my cories are unnamed. Once i get my new tank i will have several new unnamed bloodfins, black neons, loaches, and female guppies. But the guppies will probably get names. Hopefully my loaches dont have to lose them...

    In my passed I've always named my fish. My pleco was Joel, my loach was miles, and shane and october were my other 2 little fish. My betta was on its own in another tank and her name was Emily. I cant resist naming, they are pets too

    Most of my individuals of the same size and species look too much alike to be able to tell them apart well enough to give them separate names. Next time I look, I can't tell which is which...

    That is awesome! I wish I could come up with cool names like that lol. I keep a list of ideas for all my pets, but I just got into fish recently and so I don't have many good names yet.
