Well, in a few weeks I plan on adding to my collection. I plan to get a small calico ranchu/ lionhead and want to carry on the seamonster theme in my tank. But, I'm at a loss for names... Any suggestions? :)

Ogopogo? :rofl Ok, so it's not really a 'Sea' monster, rather a lake monster. Other names you might spring for are Hydra or Siren. Or you may spring fo real-life extinct sea monsters like Plesiosaur or Kronosaurus.

Hahah! I was totally thinking Hydra... but there's this record label that puts out a lot of bands I like called Hydrahead... not that it's a bad thing, just an aside... Thanks for all the great suggestions. Oh, and CountryLovah, the other fishes names are Leviathan and Kraken-- see pictures in signature. :)

Whew! OKAY Lynda research queen! LOL :krazy: If ya can't find a name from that list I don't know WHAT to tell ya! I definitly vote Hydra or Siron they are the cutest names. Capricorn is cute too.

Nessy!!! See I was sitting there thinking "what is the name of the Loch Ness monster" and as easy as it is, I couldn't get it. But then I started thinking that there was maybe already a nessy in the tank so I didn't know.

Well, I'll be the first to admit I've never read Homer, OMG!, but according to what I found, it says she was a "six-headed serpentine."

But she is often portraitted as one, according to Wikipedia "In classical art, she was depicted as a fish-tailed mermaid with four to six dog-heads ringing her waist."

This is the legend I know

"According to Ovid, Scylla was once a beautiful nymph. The fisherman-turned-sea-god Glaucus fell madly in love with her, but she fled from him onto the land where he could not follow. Despair filled his heart. He went to the sorceress Circe to ask for a love potion to melt Scylla's heart. As he told his tale of love about Scylla to Circe, she herself fell in love with him. She wooed him with her sweetest words and looks, but the sea-god would have none of her. Circe was furious, but with Scylla and not with Glaucus. She prepared a vial of very powerful poison and poured it in the pool where Scylla bathed. As soon as the nymph entered the water, she was transformed into a frightful monster with twelve feet and six heads, each with three rows of teeth. Angry, growling wolf heads grew from her waist, and she tried to brush them off. She stood there in utter misery, unable to move, loathing and destroying everything that came into her reach, a peril to all sailors who passed near her. Whenever a ship passed, each of her heads would seize one of the crew."
