New Fish

Yesterday, Bruce my buddy and fellow science teacher from Fresno High called about a mission to rescue some Koi. One of his dad's friends has become too ill to care for his pond so he has about 20 super gigantic fish to give away. Since he has had most of these fish for 20+ years, he wanted them to go to a good home. I was able to fit two more into my pond. The kids already named one but the others name is up for grabs. Check out the pictures below then submit names. We will choose the best name. I have included the rest of the backyard pets and their names for your enjoyment.
This is Moby on the left and Siberia on the right
Jeremiah the Bullfrog
Here is the one you get to name. The white & orange one right in the middle. He does not look here but this fish is gigantic. It probably weighs 14 or 15 pounds and is at least 20 inches long.
This is Goliath, the other new fish.
Lava the dragonfly.
Sunflower. He used to be the biggest.
Sunset the Koi
Sunshine the Koi

Chili the fan tailed goldfish

I've always liked the name Enoch. Or "Elisha's curse" (2 Kings 2:23-24).

How about Vladimir?

He looks like a Gilbert to me.

I was going to try to come up with a name, but Gilbert really resonated with me, so I will just second Gilbert. He could go by Gill.
