Unique Fish Name Considerations

There are a few things to take into consideration when picking a unique name for a fish. Consider your fish's personality and coloring. For instance, "Rainbow" might be a good name for fish with colorful scales and fins. Whereas "Nori," the term for dried seaweed, would be suitable for a black or dark green fish. 

Study your fish's behavior as well. This can help you pick a perfectly-suited name to match their personality. Does your fish swim up to greet you when you go to feed them or dart off to hide? Are they social with the other fish in your tank or stay by themselves? A fast swimming betta fish might benefit from a speedy name like "Flash" or "Bolt." "Mousey" would be a cute name for a sheepish fish, whereas an outgoing fish might be more of a "Fizz" — you know, because of their bubbly personality. 

Picking a pet name is kind of like throwing spaghetti at a wall and seeing what sticks. You may have to go through a few strands before you find the right one for your baby.
