Murcielago (Mercy)



She developed dropsy and was gone in less than two days despite me having Kanaplex and treating as soon as I noticed. She went way faster than I expected. I wasn't ready to say goodbye.

Her little body looks so much like Okami's did, the last girl I lost to dropsy. I don't know why, or how. The remaining 4 girls in my sorority are doing great. She's gone, and it was too fast.

Swim in peace, babygirl.

I'm so sorry Ayala! You were so careful with your setup and so attentive to making sure everything was perfect for your girls too! I hope everyone else continues to be healthy and happy.

Thank you. She was actually purple and burgundy-ish. It was hard to get pictures of her true colors. She was the hardest to get pictures of because she was so dark and all her tank mates were lighter colored.

She was buried last night, next to Okami, Bahari, and Lotus. I have bricks on each of their graves and eventually want to carve their names into the bricks. I know she's in a good place, now <3

My brother got me into it! He has loaches and since they move so fast, he should've named them Lighting or something fast, lol. Then he said something about Veyron. It's a Bugatti, fastest car on the market. I fell in love with the name Veyron as soon as he mentioned it.

Many of my fish also have theme songs (Mercy by Kanye West... Lamborghini Mercy in that song actually is talking about the Lamborghini Murcielago). I already had Lotus, I named her after the flower because she was pink but ironically, it's also a type of car. Stella is a type of alcohol, named after the song Stella by All Time Low (about alcohol).

So I looked up a bunch of car names, lol. Daihatsu, Ascari, and Zenvo are also cars.

DaBaDee is blue and named after that song I'm Blue (DaBaDee, dabadie) by Eiffel 65. Bahari means ocean/sea in Swahili, his theme song was The Little Mermaid's "Under the Sea".

I am name obsessed lol. I don't like kids but I have a list of names for kids that I never want to have, haha. I figured it'd be easier to have a bi list of names for fish. It's saved on my phone. :)

My condolenses. She was a pretty girl. SIP.

I really liked cars as a kid. Now that I think about it, cars have some seriously great names.
