    I'm planning to get a bimac soon, and I am cycling a 90 gallon tank at the moment, but I have one problem... I have an utter lack of creativity and cannot for the life of me think of a name for the little guy. :confused:

    If anybody can come up with some good suggestions, I'd appreciate it a lot. So far I have been only able to come up with names such as:

    Tsathoggua
    Rubbery
    Sticky
    Squidward
    Freddy Krueger (I'm leaning toward this one)

    We always wait til we meet the octi.........they all have different personalities. Often we'll ask a group of kids to name it hence the odd names we've had!

    I would call it Rapping Occy the Gangsta Octopus, or ROGO for short.

    I'm naming mine Raul and Davey Jones, per request of my friends.

    I was leaning towards Launch Octopus, because I'm a huge fan of the Megaman X videogame series. And Launch Octopus was a little bastard in that game.

    Some of mine were named after people just because I liked the name like Rummler and Biddle.

    i agree with jean. wait til you see him(her?). a name will come to you. or open a book and close your eyes and point. of course my folks just made up my name. they wanted a name nobody ever had. then you can claim it means whatever you want, like zyan, the enlightened one. or some other equally crazy thing!!!! zy
