Today, me, a coworker, and my manager were looking at random advertisements. One ad was a picture of three fishes. My coworker named the three fishes what I thought were completely random names. I said "those are stupid names." Turns out those are my manager's kid's names. FML

You can use fishes as a plural, it's just not used often.

'fish n. , pl. , fish , or fishes . Any of numerous cold-blooded aquatic vertebrates of the superclass Pisces, characteristically having fins, gills'.

It says it in the dictionary, and if that's not right, I don't know what is.

You do realise that the plural for fish is not fishes right, were you trying to be funny?
the plural for fish is also just fish
its the same as the plural form of sheep is still sheep

No, I wasn't just being funny.
I know how language works, and it is in the oxford dictionary, it's just a very old way of saying the plural.
It's just that language has changed, but it can be used, and is an acceptable way of pluralising fish.
