Weel, my name is pretty simple, EllaFish refers to my awesome fish Ella. But Ella herself was named after a character in a book (bird-human thing) who was small, fast, colorful, and always getting picked on by her fellow bird-humans. Just like my fishy!! The name held true until a few weeks ago, when she and her tankmate Julie went through a complete personality swap and Ella started picking on Julie. We have them separated now.

I trust that airplanes can fly in the same way I trust that fish can swim. Only in an airplane, it takes 830 times as much power, and you fall 830 times as fast.

My username is a play on words. Koi (as in the americanized word for nishikigoi) is pronounced the same way as "coy" which means shy and modest. I'm a pretty reserved person in real life, so I thought I would be clever. Hence, the shy girl... while also displaying my love for the majestic nishigoi.

I had the song from the "Tale of Two Lovers" episode of Avatar: Last Airbender stuck in my head xD
My engagement may have had something to do with this lol.
101 is... i dunno... like the basic room number in most schools and is usually where you can get information if you're lost or whatever... it's kind of like, we're learning how to be a couple? (I have no idea where I was going with that)

Mine is pretty explanitory bettas are awesome hence bettasareawesome. I nearly named myself Chewer which has been my username on almost all online things becuase the first time I had to use a username was to post a score of pac-man I was playing on the computer. And I couldn't think of anything better but, i've stopped using that becuase to many people were wondering why the heck I picked that name. And it took a long time to explain it. I always make stories to long... Ugh, did it again.

a lot of closed-minded people would consider me to be a terrorist due to some of my political views (mostly those associated with anarchism, socialism and anti-patriotism) and the name "homegrown terror" just had a nice ring to it.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

I'm just very short and I love nature and stuff.

Leaves = part of nature

me = little in height :D

little + leaf = Little Leaf!

Lets see here mine is Bettawolf19.
The wolf and 19 has been with me for YEARS(like round 8-9 years) since my first ever screen name I created was Argetwolf19. The Arget came from thebook Eragon which meant Silver. Arget=Silver thus Silverwolf and the 19 was just a number the website gave me to tack on and I guess it just stuck.

And Betta just came from the obvious Bettafish site haha

You can only hate something you have some sort of liking and respect for and love those you are capaible of hating

Solo, Gibson,Helix, Priest and Zeke
Dezzy, Bubbles, Spot and Dot
Comet Goldfish, guppy female,
3 otos and 1 neon
