Pet Fish named Blue

As can be seen in the upper left of the tank, I recently got a pet fish. After 22.033, I was left with a glass fish tank because we used one to show off our project. The fish is a Blue Oranda so I am calling it 'Blue'. Hopefully it enjoys the 3D printed objects I place in the tank. In this case, a 3D printed cross section of reactor fuel is at the bottom.

An oranda is a breed of goldfish characterized by a prominent bubble-like "hood" on the head. The headgrowth or hood (also known as wen or crown) may be a prominent growth on the top of the head (cranial region) or may encase the entire face except for the eyes and mouth.

When Oranda's were first imported from China to Japan it was mistakenly thought to be native to the Netherlands, and was therefore dubbed the "Holland Lionmask", "Dutch Lionhead", and "Netherland's Lion Head" (オランダ獅子頭), from which its English name "oranda" derives.
