Enough pills there to send me to the funny pharm.


I have some interpretive differences to what you wrote.

The green and green/yellow pills represent the same thing, not different. The white fin pills also appear to represent this same drug. It is not a case of one color and two meanings, but rather 3 colors and one meaning.

Also, the water surface is unlabeled.


Pharmaceutical has greek roots and its use in this context would be appropriate in greek (φάρμακο[pharmaco] = medicine).


Fish don't breathe air.


Pharmaceuticals, like hallucinogenics.

Glen Turpin

Used as a noun, "pharmaceutical" only refers to drugs, not companies.

1.pertaining to pharmacy or pharmacists.
