Allow me to introduce to you some of my newest coworkers. We aren’t usually assigned to the same projects, but we share the same office and they help me out some with my work. I’ve found them to be some of my closest friends too.

Lolly & Pops

Mixed Fruit Tetras
Lolly and Pops

Color: Blue
Characteristics: Likes to “lollygag” casually around the tank. Often “falls asleep” and starts drifting around, but gets abruptly awaken by Pops.

Color: Pink
Characteristics: Don’t allow no “lollygaggin” in the tank. Gives Lolly a “pop” in the side when he falls asleep. Very mean and bossy. Makes sure everybody knows who’s in charge. (I thought about naming her after my girlfriend, but shhh)

Crispy & Strips

Crispy and Strips

Color: White with black specks
Characteristics: Likes to follow behind Strips and chase him around. Also has a bit of a temper sometimes.

Color: Black with white specks
Characteristics: Plays Simon says with Crispy, but only when he gets to be Simon. Likes to play with the bubbles at the top of the water. Has a few distinguishing “strips” in his tailfin.

Tick & Tock

Glo-light Tetras
Tick and Tock

Color: Transparent Orange
Characteristics: Has a seemingly uncontrollable “tick” in his left fin. Likes to relax near the bottom of the tank.

Color: Transparent Orange
Characteristics: Siamese twins with Tick, separated at birth. A little more active than Tick. Likes to pick on Pops.


I had three Neon Tetras at first (they’re a lot like the Glo-light Tetras, but neon) but all three of them died the first night.

Also, some sad news, Tick and Tock didn’t make it through the weekend. Sadness.

It wasn’t my fault! The two Glo-light tetras were just lonely cuz they lost their three friends. Would you want to live any longer if you lost all your best friends? Okay you probly would, but still

“So, is there any left?”

Yes, I still have Lolly & Pops and Crispy & Strips.

“how did you get good pictures of them when they are in the tank??”


Are you repeating my questions to point out that I am stupid or something? Why do you always have to hurt my feelings?

I hope you have a good day, Josh. I can be nice, why can’t you?
