    This just struck me as funny this morning . Some of my fish have got names, and some havent revealed their names yet.

    I don't so much look at the tank and go oooh look at the sailfin tang - it's more like oooh look at Bubble.
    And so on ...

    I got to thinking if I am the only fool who names his fish ? And chuckling about it.

    Anyway, if other reefers out there do the same I'd like to know the names :) And post pics please - so we can see if the names match the look of the fish.

    And maybe I just need reassurance that I am not certifiable ...:blush:

    All my critters are named...
    My two percs are kwasi and modo (modo is up-side down and kwasi has a light dorsal fin)
    My cleaner shrimps are hitler and eva their moustaches gave them away
    The two lagoon gobies are bonnie and clyde (they constantly play hide and seek)
    The green clown goby is noodles. The patterns always makes me think of food, and I love my pasta :)
    The yellow clown goby is sunshine.
    My blue eye hermit is hercules - he is always playing push-over with the loose coral rocks, and likes to bungee jump without the rope...
    And lastly the rusty angel is starsky, always flashing his colors ( there should be a hutch, but tank too small for two of them)

    Our Blenny got the name "Smiley" because it looks like he smiles at us all the time. My boyfriend named his biggest shrimp " Jacques the shrimp"
