R.I.P Arturo :(
He was my favourite little buddy :( my first little buddy actually.
Ive had goldfish my entire life and theyve all lived for 5-8 years. So when the last one died and my mom said i couldnt get anymore fish, i was mad. She didnt want anymore goldfish, and she didnt want to have to keep cleaning the tanks (cause i didnt do it at all. haha)
Ever since i could remember ive always hated bettas. Siamese fighting fish, whatever. I remember walking around walmart as a kid and being like "ew" when i saw them in their little cups. I hated how they just sat around in their little glass bowls and did nothing. I hated how they couldnt have friends with them in their tanks. I just flat out didnt like them.
Then idk i just woke up one morning and i was like "...i want one of those." so i told my grandma to take me and off we went to Big Als. There were like...maybe 20 there. They were all so fancy and colourful and nice, but, i didnt want any of them. Then i saw this boring red fish in a boring little bowl swiming around, flaring at me, and acting like a fool. He was red, just red, no other colour. But he was perfect, he was the perfect little buddy for me. So i took him home, told my mom i got a fish, cleaned out the old 3 gallon tank, and put Arturo in. He was so happy, i was happy knowing i made him happy. He was so cute too with his big head haha.
Now hes buried in my backyard underneath the plants with Kanye, Beyonce, and Dorito.
Rip Arturo. Ily man.
