Or maybe the Chinese word for blue because they are sometimes called “Chinese Fighting Fish.”

How about “Fish” or “Someone’s lunch.”

Sea Kitten! It’s what PETA is trying to have people call fish because “who could harm a sea kitten?”.

Morton if it’s a boy fish.
Mrs. Paul if it’s a girl fish.

Dorian McGreywater Saunders if it plays with plastic army men.
Susan Peacockpetal Ashworthy if it wears purple bows.

Wow, AC. You really like naming fish.

Honestly, I always wanted a blue fish named Bubbles. Dumb, but I like it. I also liked backwards names.

Like Mud, Dirt…or going in a different direction (Fish and) Chips, Sushi, and funny joke names. Chuck Norris, since it’s an asian style fighting fish, etc.

I second Frizzer, Wanda, and Moby. I don’t like naming pets after colors. I did it once to my goldfish, named him Goldy. Then my brother said he ate him as he came out of my room. I ran in to check and he was fine.

The next day I woke up and he was dead.

My brother totally killed my fish.
I don’t care what you say.

I have a tortoise named Tortoise. Initially we called him Kurma, but Kurma is an avatar of Vishnu and it felt weird. So now we call him Tortoise. I don’t think he’s noticed the difference.

@asmonet, I once had a snapping turtle named Dinner. Raised him up from a hatchling to a ten pound hunk of meanness. Then I ate him. Mmmm, he was tasty.

Oh my gosh when I read this question I almost cried. Not that you did anything but I had a blue betta for a long time but it died a week ago. I know its just a fish but we were really close. I suggest the names Coral, Marble, Sapphire, Alex, Ametrine, and Silver. Heres some tips.
– Always have a filter! (without one brething problems are possible!)
– Keep in plants and sea life to remind him of the ocean, and to create a strong lifestyle.
– I had a blue betta and they dont need such a big tank.
– Try and put a tank with a female next to it so that they can look at each other.
