Talking Two dayssssss :)

Only two more days (Not counting today) and then I get mah new fishiessssss :) (Saturday)

I've decided on their names already (Even though I don't have them I know what I'm getting XD).

The solid red DT will be Mister Fishy II for a few reasons.

1, I already had Mister Fishy I.

2, he's red like Mister Fishy I, and all future Mister Fishies must be solid red.

3, He's a DT. Double is twice the amount, two, II, get it? It's a pun!

And then I think I'm getting a blue and white butterfly halfmoon from PetCo that (As much as I hate the class) I think I will be naming Senor Azul (MISTER BLUEEEEE!). Hmm... I wonder what butterfly is in Spanish. RESEARCH TIME!

The ones at my local PetCo look a lot like this guy: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_psMV8eOl3J...m+blue+bf2.JPG
Just a tad lighter :)

Because then I can just call him Azul which is a pretty cool name, even if I hate Spanish class and it's really simple in English. Unless I come up with a better name.

I'M EXCITED :D

I will picture spam as soon as I get them home and acclimated to their QTs, so be ready :)

EDIT: Hmmm.... Butterfly is Mariposa... I could always call him Mariposa Azul (Even though that's technically feminine.....). UGH. Anyone have name suggestions?

Choucho! It is japanese for butterfly. Cho is the abbreviated form, though it still means butterfly.

How exciting! Make sure you show us pics when they settle down!
Hmm... what about Astro Azul? I like Papillon and Choucho too!

I will once they settle down and are out of QT (I'll probably do a picture journal or something because I'm on spring break for two weeks starting Saturday so I can update a lot), but thanks to Lupin's advice they won't be out of QT until around halfway through April- he told me to QT them for a month.

I might just name him Mariposa and call him Azul as a nickname.

I can't wait :)
