First up.. Tallahassee.. Blue OHM MG/Melano Geno









Fertile Myrtle (Myrtle for short). Sibling female.





And... Bowie!!! Multicolor BF HM. I just snapped a couple pics of him.. he wasn't in the flaring mood tonight.

Gorgeous! All of them.

Haha.... I don't know about Tallahassee, but the first thing that comes to mind for Myrtle is Moaning Myrtle from Harry Potter XD

And for Bowie, David Bowie (did I get that right?)

Haha, I don't know...

Haha.. got one. I <3 David Bowie. Fertile Myrtle is from a movie.. just not Harry Potter and Tallahassee is from a movie as well.

All three of these beauties (as well as Lilly Vanilly.. my pastel HM girl) will be going in the spawning tank this weekend hopefully. Maybe even as early as Thursday.

Don't be jealous.. in a few months you can buy one (or a bunch) of their babies.

Ok.. I gotta go to bed so I'm gonna cave :P

Tallahasse is a character played by Woody Harrelson in "Zombieland"

Fertile Myrtle is from a quote from the movie "Juno" that I love.

Bowie is of course David Bowie who starred in my favorite childhood movie "Labyrinth"

Lilly Vanilly is just a silly name. I was originally just going to call her Lilly but everyone was calling her the "vanilla" fish so I added on the "vanilly"... its similar to "Milli Vanilli"

Many of you are probably too young to remember the "Labyrinth" or Milli Vanilli unless you love 80s movies and music the way I do.
