The Week contest: Fish surgery

This week's question: A devoted British pet owner sprang for a $400 surgical procedure to remove a growth from the mouth of Bluebell — a 17-year-old goldfish — that required special fish anesthesia and a team to keep her wet on the operating table. If a TV network were to make a medical drama about the exploits of a team of fish surgeons, what should the series be titled?
