A Very "Fishy" Problem


To any of you that can't handle a sad story, I advise you to stop reading this immediately. Because if you don't, you may find yourself upset. I feel that this is my duty to tell you that. Consider this your warning.

We have wonderful neighbors who gave us a pretty, small aquarium with 3 fish in it. There is one pink fish and we had two brown fish. Notice how I said "had". Yes, the two brown fish died. The bigger brown fish's name was " Sasquatch" and the smaller one was " Stanley". Stanley died Saturday, the 19. Then Sasquatch died Sunday, the 2o. There are no pictures of them, unfortunately.

So the pink one was still alive ("Pinky") but all by her self. She is the one in the picture. So we went to "PetSmart" to see why they died. We got all of these chemicals to clean the water. We also bought this cute, black fish we named "Raider". And now today (the 24) little Raider has died.

None of us know why. If anyone knows anything, do not hesitate to give me advice, info, etc. It would be greatly appreciated. I am starting to get a little sick of seeing dead fish!!!! And if you are crying now, you can't say I didn't warn you. Thank You!

So sad:( We had a fish we named something and then changed his name to Orca(like the killer whale) because everytime we got him a playmate...the playmate ended up in Davy Jones locker(Pirates of the Caribbean)...

I don't know anything about fish...perhaps and investigation as to what is so FISHY?!?!?! Sorry mom humor...forgive me!

Young Artist, if you are able to read this, Pinky is OK!! We got a new thermometer found out our thermometer was not reading correctly, and the water was waaaaaay too hot!! So we took out the heater and the water is much cooler now. Maybe there will be a new fish when you get home.....?
