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
never named the guppies. but my bigger more stand out fish all have names.
girl betta - pearl
boy betta - poe
loach - gunda
cories- panda, stripes, and ugly.
copper molly- punk
white molly- steam
still working on the lemon swordtail names.
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...

I think i got them all. Note these are not in all the same tank. That would be a little crazy...
10gal Betta Tank
- Skye the crowntail
and Squiggles the deformed albino cory
I just call them by either the common or scientific name lol
2 do have I.ds though.
The one eyed yellow lab is Blinky (Neighbours daughter named)
and the fat 5" yoyo loach is chubby (Nephew named)
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...
20 gal. high: planted; 8 white cloud minnows, 10 RCS, 2 blue shrimp, several snails; AC50, Azoo air. 65 gal: planted; 7 rosy barbs, 6 glofish,, 2 zebra danios, 6 rosy red (fathead) minnows, 3 dojo loaches, several snails; AC110 x 2.
