    I concur with Alanis. Never thought I’d say that.

    Most definitely Groker.

  2. Chris says:

    I concur with Sam. Groker is my vote!

  3. aaron says:

    Groker rhymes with croaker and sounds like the name of a frog. wink

    Fabio OR Matsya definitely!

    Greetings Bryan!

    In despite of the particular that we have never made aquaintance, I desire to inform you that I have been notified that those who dub their fishes “Groker” will possess endless and unabated good fortune with girls, believe me. Do not overlook it!

    I favor Voltaire (as it was my idea to begin with) or Fabio.

  6. Mikebrod says:

    I think that Groker is the clear choice.

    Mr. Chang

    how could you not love that name?

    (btw it’s from a box of vegetables (string beans?))

  10. Johnny Depp says:

    duh, name it Groker, duh

  11. Annie says:

    I agree with Jessie: Fabio or Voltaire. If you choose Voltaire though, you shouldn’t be surprised if the bubbles form the words: “Il faut cultiver notre jardin.”

  12. Fiona says:

    I prefer the name Sushi, but I really like the “make people call your pet Mr” thing, so I would say Mr. Sushi….but on second thought, go with Mr. Groker so when I get a fish I can name it Mr. Sushi!

  13. Katy says:

    Come on Fiona.

    Vote for Sushi.

    I am.

  14. Christi says:

  15. Tony says:

    matsya sounds pretty cool.

  16. Mike says:

    It’s a hard choice between Fabio and Mr. Sushi, but I think I’ll have to go with Mr. Sushi. =)

  17. timmy says:

    fabio is the COOLEST name EVER

  18. Pam says:
