    I name my betta fish. Only because it seems they learn their name. Fish that are intelligent and personable seem to get names because after years of talking to a fish, giving it a name other than "little guy" and "it" seems fairly logical. Most everyone I've met keeping an oscar gives the fish a name.

    Tumi used to come out when I called him. But then I moved him into a new tank and now that there are other big fish and more places to hide he doesn't anymore.

    I name a fish that is really interactive and has a good personality. No since in naming a fish that "hates you" imo. Naming fish is not for children. They are pets just like cats and dogs and should be treated as such, as some of the senior members will tell you.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

    Most of my fish actually come when called. Most. And most are named. It would take a while to list all, but meh, ill do it again.

    10gal:
    Reaper - Veil tail betta
    Squiggles - deformed Albino Dwarf Cory
    The pink things - other 5 albino dwarf cories
    Casper, Wendy, Frankenstein, Nightmare, Pearl - dwarf frogs

    10gal Fiddler Tank:
    Capricorn - male
    Sagittarius - female
    Libra - female
    Chase - juvie molly

    75gal:
    Salt, Scott, Smudge, Snip, Fidget, Chew, Patches, Dipstick - mollies
    Makani - gold gourami female
    Mahina - dwarf gourami female
    Petri - Comet goldfish
    Steve - rubbernose pleco
    Sid - upside down catfish
    Crunch - bleeding heart tetra
    Larry, Moe, and friends - java loaches
    Bloodfin Gang - self explanatory
    and my 4 black neons have no names or gang names either

    Also i have Phantom the dying betta that lays on bottom of tank all day but still lives, and i have 2 new molly/platy hybrid babies that arent named yet. They are both female i hope (too early to tell), to fix the ratio of mollies i have (currently 4:5).

    10gal Tank- Glofish
    75gal- Everything

    I name fish that have distinctive personalities or are identifiable in some unique way.

    Fluffy - male half-moon betta (he was a tail biter when I first got him, so I named his tank "Finding Emo")
    Snailio Iglesias - brown apple snail
    Slois Lane - yellow apple snail
    Zig and Zag - tracked nerite snails (I'm not picky about which is which)
    Steve and Buddy - yellow male guppies
    Brimley - bristlenose pleco
    Dar, Earl, Chai, Pekoe, and Angie - baby angel fish
    Ohto and Chisato - otocinclus

    The nine neon tetras don't have individual names except for Mr. Crabbypants and Boner (don't ask).

    The ten harlequin rasboras are the bikers.

    The eight skunk cory cats are the won tons.

    I would like to see a video of this. Maybe one where you are not in the room or where the fish can see you so we are certain they aren't just coming because they think you are going to feed them and are actually responding to the sound of your voice and their names.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    We have 5 loaches that we named after politicians because they're bottom feeders.
    I am getting 2 ropes when mine is done cycling too
