In the absence of any suggestions, we have named the fish. -es. Yes, I said fish, as in two of them. In an impulse last night, my grandparents bought me another fish, this one red, and very temperamental, but we'll get him to eat eventually. So our first fish is named Ducati, and our second fish is named Ferrari. I smile to think about the looks on people's faces when we tell them we have a Ducati and a Ferrari at home... They are lovely, and you all need to meet them. I have decreed.

I must stop typing now. My arms hurt.

Mom and Dad's Grandfish

Today, a new member of the family made his entrance into the apartment, with as little fuss and bother as we could accomplish. Now, five hours later, he is comfortably nestled in his 2L tank with his three fake plants, flattened marbles on the floor, and a light which will keep the water temperature just right. We have no photos as yet, but hopefully soon we'll be able to share our little bundle of joy with the rest of you. In the meantime, if anyone can think of a good name for a blue and red (with a little green and purple mixed in) betta fish, please post in the comment section. Currently, we're playing with three from the movie Finding Nemo: Crush, Jellyman, or Sharkbait.
