RFCP: Recon FISH of Club Penguin?

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA— We love any new recruit….but this one has gills! Meet the Recon Federation of Club Penguin’s newest underwater friend.

When I, Gen. Microwaveable Hamster, went into PetCo to get bones for my dog, the last thing I expected was to walk out carrying a fish. Alas, the stars aligned, and simply looking at the colorful finned friends while meandering up to the checkout line presented me with a problem: one appeared to be the EMBODIMENT of the Recon Federation of Club Penguin (RFCP). I immediately turned to the army’s other Officers in #command-room for help. 

They did not help.

So, unfortunately, for me, I could find no logical reason why I should not adopt this spectacular fish. I had gotten paid that day, and the money was burning a hole in my pocket as the fish was simultaneously burning a hole in my heart. 

It was purple, reddish-brown, and had a tiny grey stripe on the tail. Just look at this fish in comparison with the RFCP flag!

Prior’s Note: He’s also white but idk maybe that’s for the iceberg.

ALL of our army’s colors, even the small pinch of grey in the lettering of our name, are represented!

Finding no reason not to take this fish home, I quickly put him in my cart and went in search of his new habitat. I had only owned exactly one fish in my life, so I had to take to Google to figure out what all was best for this specific fish, a male elephant ear betta. Under the guidance of the Internet, I found his necessary items–all RFCP themed. 

When all was said and done, I headed to the check out area while everyone sent name suggestions. This was with 20% off each item that came with buying a live animal:

Name suggestions included Fishy Bot Thorton, Federation, Grey Bear, Collin (as in CollinZfresh), coolerj, and Reacon (Prior’s Note: purposefully misspelled, to make the Reacon from CPA once again think we do anything because of him). Once a few name suggestions had been sent, I headed to our #polls channel with my top 3 choices to let the army vote. I secured my aquatic friend in my car’s cup holder, headed home, and set up a tank for my unnamed-fish while everyone cast ballots on what to call him.

The vote seemed to be pretty unanimous, and my new pet officially had a name: Recon!

Prior’s Note: Col. Random was pretty disappointed “Coolerj” didn’t win.

After getting Recon’s new habitat situated (making sure he was properly acclimated to the water temperature), I sent one final update to the army:

It has been exactly one week since I adopted Recon, and he seems perfectly at home on my bookshelf, right next to my RFCP water bottle (see the top photo!). Commander Prior Bumble has declared him as an enlisted, official mascot for the army to adore:

I declare Recon the Fish an official mascot enlisted in RFCP.
