60 Funny Fish Names

Source

Swimming around in a fish bowl, with a bunch of fun-colored gravel, a little castle to hide and sleep in, free food and no work; that’s the life! The wonderful life of a fish, of course. Wouldn’t that life be so easy?

Fish are beautiful and come in many shapes, sizes and colors. If you’ve ever stepped foot inside of an aquarium, then you are well aware of the beauty and variety that water beholds. It’s like a party of colors!

Okay, not all fish are pretty and colorful, but the majority of the ones that you will find in a pet store are! It’s one of the main points in owning an aquarium at home; to have something nice and relaxing to look at.

Then, you have pet fish that serve other purposes, such as the algae eaters, shrimp, and snails. They help keep algae under control, and although they cannot handle the entire job themselves, they do a great job, each handling certain types of algae.

Pet Store Fishies

When you go to a pet store, you will run into freshwater and saltwater fish. You can have one or the other, and it’s important that you are ready to take on whichever type you decide on, and not get them mixed up!

Also, be sure to check compatibility if you plan on buying multiple fish, because fish, like siblings, can fight and sometimes to the point of fatality.

If you are aware of Betta fish, then you probably know about their aggressive behavior towards other fish, including their own kind!

So, in other words, be sure to consult the pet store peeps about your choices before you buy them.

Why Have Fish?

Aside from the relaxing aspect of having fish, they are relatively low-maintenance. Yes, you need to keep their tanks clean and keep them fed, but you would also have to do that for any other animal. Here’s a few things that are great about having fish:

  • No walking needed

  • No potty training

  • No worrying about them jumping on your guests

  • No allergies (Unless you plan on eating them)

  • No loud noises

  • They don’t stink (Unless the tank is severely neglected, of course)

  • Cheap to feed

  • They don’t need much space

Funny Fish Names

Now just because you don’t treat them like the typical pet, it doesn’t mean that they don’t need a name.

Cute or funny fish names are as important as dog names, even if they can’t hear you.

You don’t really plan on calling it “Fish” or “Fishy” forever, do you? I didn’t think so.

Choosing the Perfect Name

Now that you have an idea on what to call a fish, it’s time for you to start looking into cute or funny fish names for your fish.

Once you make that decision, if you have multiple fish, especially of the same fish, try to look for distinguishing features so that you can tell them apart. I know, it’s tough because the fish of the same kind definitely look alike!

But if you can recall the movie “Finding Nemo,” a good example of a distinguishable feature would be Nemo’s small fin. Sometimes the fish may have a chunk taken out of a fin, a small tear, a spot somewhere on the body, etc.

You’ll be able to tell the difference between your fish before you know it.

If you don’t decide on a name right away, the good thing is that the fish won’t have hurt feelings!

Interesting and somewhat from a fish's point of view! Finding Nemo is one of my all time favorite movies. I have a couple of bala sharks that I'm almost certain are male and female by the way the act. I named them George and Gracie.
