    What are your favorite fish names?

    I named one of my clownfish 'John Wayne Gacy' (psycho serial killer who dressed up like a clown...)
    The other one, my son named 'Carlitta'
    The coral banded shrimp is 'Candy', because he looks like a candy cane.
    The large hermit is 'Tank', because he's like a tank running through the tank.
    The corris wrasse is 'The Devil', because he is and he needs to be destroyed.

    We're still working on the others...

    :lol: I haven't named my fish, but my six cats have very unusual names and they are, Sumerfield, Northumberland, Shy-Anne, Dianne (SISTERS) and my baby (who is actually 72 in human years and Sumerfield is 91) Ameshoff. Two dogs, my old lady (a Daschund) Natasha and my new puppy, who is a cross beagle (and who Knows, rescued from SPCA) is called George.
    I love your names, really cool.
    The only one in my tank I would name is my tomotoe clown and I would call her "the brave one that loves to attack my hand when I put it in the tank!'

    Carlosdeandrade, You make me smile.... Cats are my first passion... then the tank. Actually I have a great passion for animals, but my cats..... Now I only have 3 because I live in an Estate, but would have loved many more. Bella is my 2 year old Sphynx, Mimi is my 2 year old Devon Rex, and the Master of all Masters is Sparky, the 7 year old Red Tabby. (Replica of Garfield.... a beaut and he knows it). Plus the Yorkies and many, many fish. I just love them all to bits.

    The massive Fox Face... "Retard" for obious reasons. The purple Tang "asshole" for obvious reasons (and this was not named by me, by the way... My sisters daughter named them all) and the Lyretail Anthias male, Osama (Bin Laden) because he has 7 wives and he rules the "commune". Salarias Blenny, "Homer", Gold banded Maroon Clown pair.. "Sissie and Boetie", heaven knows why because they obviously not "Sissie and Boetie" laying clutches of eggs every month ;). And my "Baby", the Copperband! Ther you go!

    Lawnmower blenny got named "Monster" by the misses.
    The forum would probably ban me if I mention my urchin's name.
