Green Ichthys Goldfish!

So, I found this half-green gold fish in my box of whole-grain goldfish today. Looks to me like something I could sell on ebay as a religious symbol. I'm thinking of it as an ichthys (The fish that say Jesus inside them).

  • What should I call it?
  • What kind of story should I write about it? (What can I claim it is?)
  • Which category on ebay should I put it in?

Ichthys doesn't mean the jesus fish, it just means fish in greek

No, but the fish that they write jesus in is called an ichthys.
It doesn't have to have "jesus" inside of it -- there are other options. Heck, it doesn't even have to be fish shaped to be an ichthys!
um, Icthyse means fish, I think it has to be one...
Sorry to mess with your head, but... no. Earlier ichthys were shaped like wheels with 8 spokes.

Key word there: "Earlier"
The thing is, it was still an Ichthys -- just not a fish-shaped one. It was made out of layering the letters ΙΧΘΥΣ ("Ἰ"ησοῦς "Χ"ριστός," Θ"εοῦ "Υ"ἱός, "Σ"ωτήρ >> "Jesus Christ, God's Son, Saviour.") that often appear in the modern fish. After they used the wheel-shaped ichthys for a while, they probably realized that ΙΧΘΥΣ is also Greek for fish, and decided to use a fish as the symbol, instead of a wheel. You'll understand a lot better if you just read the Wikipedia article.
Damn. Heed the last line -- just read the article.
