Identify that fish!

Ok, so back up (as usual), my in-laws have this fabulous little old lady whom they befriended almost 30 years ago when they were in Ulpan. Her name is Gerda (say it again to yourself but with a Dr. Ruth Westheimer accent) and she's now pushing 90. So Gerda lives in Jerusalem in a Retirement Home. My kids have been with Saba on a few occasions to pick her up and she has noticed that they were mezmerized by the HUGE fishtank that they have in their lobby.

Soooooooo, Gerda decided that she wanted to buy the boys goldfish cuz they liked the fish so much. She asked my permission before talking to the boys about it, cuz of course we all know what happens when a 3 and a 5 year old get goldfish....................yup, you guessed it, the mom cleans the fish and takes care of them while the kids after about 5 minutes forget the darn things are even there.

Well, to make a long story short, THIS mom isn't the greatest at cleaning and maintaining fish bowls. So, well, um, I'm embarrassed to say, but I failed, and yes, there have been numerous times that the bowl remained murky for a day or two before getting cleaned. And, well, I'm not up on Fish Medicine, but I think one of the fishies is sick............he has grown a MUSTACHE!!! he just in disguise???? You be the judge.............what evil man does this fish remind you of? Freaky huh? (click to see a really big pic of him--the one on the right)
