This is Georges. Georges was named by "Spaghetti
Joe" when he said the fish looked like a little Frenchmen with a red
beret. Joe could even envision a loaf of French bread under his fin
and a hand rolled cigarette in his little fishy mouth, as he swam back to
"Chez Lui" Georges is one of the original three fish that we
put into the pond as an experiment to see if fish could survive with no
help from us at all. We bought three fish. Two that looked like
Georges and one gold fish looking one. After 6 months or more
i noticed little fish in the pond. Bingo... We had a little
independent eco-system here. The fish were breeding and thriving all by
them selves in the pond. George got so big and fat, i think he ate himself
to death. Perhaps he was just old, i don't know but Ole' George went to
that big fish bowl in the sky. He may have been bullied by the larger gold
fish. We have some that are around 8" long now and i did see them "crowd"
George from time to time.
