Name Our Betta Fish

For Christmas one of the presents to the crew was a small aquaponics set up. Aquaponics is like hydroponics in that you grow plants without soil and instead use water to transfer nutrients, but adds fish into the mix to supply the nutrients rather than having to artificially add them. So now we have ourselves a hab pet who needs a name.

    How about “Marvin” (the Martian) from Bugs Bunny.
    Or maybe a nod to Jules Verne with “Captain Nemo”.
    Or “Moby Dick” just to be silly…
