Poor Fish

G lost his first pet this week. And to be honest, I think I was more distraught than he was. Although that could be because I felt slightly responsible for the fish’s death since I:

 

a) damaged his body structure by accidentally trapping him under the filter while I cleaned his tank

 

b) overfed him. I just couldn’t help myself. Every night before I went to bed they always looked so FRANTIC. So like all American mothers, I attempted to dislodge their panic via fish flakes.

 

Regardless, we did get the funeral on video:

And yes, even at the end of this poor fish’s life, I could not figure out if he was FancyBird or BlueBird (as seen in the video). Thank goodness we don’t have twins.

 

So looks like this Saturday we are off to get another less complicated fish. Like a goldfish that costs fifty cents. Not the Dwarf Neon Rainbow fish we got suckered into at the Old Town Aquarium which cost us the equivalent of one apple martini at NoMI.

 

PETCO, here we come.
