I think we have FAS – Fish Acquisition Syndrome! At my urging, and news that the store had a new shipment, we paid them a visit and brought home two new friends:
- Sushi, another red zebra, so Sashimi has a buddy.
- Graves, a black moor with not-yet-bulgy eyes. We went through several name ideas, from Venice to Katchzsper to Big Baby Booty (BBB) to Niggababy. We finally decided on “Graves” in reference to Graves’ hyperthyroidism, which causes exophthalmos (proptosis).
Graves is still learning how to swim, so he’s very clumsy, but he likes to move.
Sashimi is smaller than Sushi, and the two haven’t quite gotten along yet.
And Boyfriend is still chasing Girlfriend.
