Meet Idrissou

Well, the apartment managers say that I can't have pets here. But I don't think they'll mind if Idrissou moves in with me. He's a black moor goldfish. He loves to suck on gravel, blow bubbles, and generally wiggle about all day while I'm at school. The care guide says this breed is quite hardy and can survive near freezing temps. This is good because it gets almost that cold in my apartment! I chose the name Idrissou because it was a popular name for men in Benin while I was there in the Peace Corps in 1999. Its a muslim name, I think. So I thought it would be a good name for a black moor. What do you think?
