How do you refer to your bettas?

Most of us name our fish but do any of you have a certain name that you call them other then their personal names?

I refer to mine as my Minions. When I come home I walk up to them and in a semi evil voice say, " hello, my minions."

Ok, I know I'm weird but I also know I'm not the only weird person here.

I usually call them my kids or babies. Before I leave I always give them a lecture about not having any wild parties and don't let the guppies out! Then I put General Lee in charge because he's the oldest.

I refer to my betta as Muffins. I'll be like "Hello, Muffins~!" Even though he has a name. :P

I generally just refer to Howl and Blaze as "The Boys" and Mi as "Lady".
I never call her "girl" because she just acts too elegant and graceful for that.

Howl - Royal Blue Veil Tail
Blaze - Blue and Red Delta
Mi - Blue Lady
Four - ADF
Seven - Ghost Shrimp
Two - Black Diamond Shrimp
Two - Red Crystal Shrimp
A Few - HitchHiker Snails
One - Golden Apple Snail
