Some people think it's silly, but I've always named my pet fish. My favorite of all time was a white angel fish named Angel. (I never said I was original!) I had this fish for about four years.
How about you?
As silly as it may seem, I have a few of my fish that I have named. I currently own a red belly pacu. The links below will show you what they look like.
My pacu is named Frankie and he is about 15 inches long and 10 inches tall and about 2 to 3 inches thick. He is one of the biggest that I have seen and also has developed teeth.
We named him shortly after he started growing and also because he is the only one of his kind in the tank.
I think that it is smart to name them as it builds the bonding.
I don't think naming fish is strange or silly. I find it a more personal attitude towards pets If we always name dogs and cats, why this should be different with fish? And I think they somehow "remember" names
I call my catfish Zorro.I always name the fish, But I have to admit I do not always remember their names!!

What is the name of your pet and how did you come up with it?My kids' cat's name is Tokey. I asked my daughter how they came up with that name and she said it comes from smoking joint. Instead of saying "Wanna smoke?" nowadays kids say "Wanna toke up?"

I had a friend years ago who named their Llasa "Useless." Cute name, but not appropriate for this dog. This little thing was far smarter than both her owner and me. After a painful break-up in my 20's, I unexpectedly took over the care of a pup and named him Solo to...

What would you name a Beta Fish?My friend Curtis just got a Beta in his Environmental class today. He carried the little bugger through the entire school day, and we named him "Kyris" over chat second period, since we both had study halls. He's a small blue Beta with red running through...
