Taylor - Don't feel bad...I've had so many times I made mistakes and I felt like a "bad fish mom" due to stress, being in a rush, or being my usual airheaded self... I can't even count...Animals can be frustrating even though we love them. It sounds silly to some, when I compare taking care of fish to taking care of a baby, but I can now really FEEL for new infant moms...The having to be uber careful, and making sure they eat, and making sure their little world is perfect & calm so they don't die.

Confession - I did a full water change on one's tank, then put him in it, then it struck me
5 minutes later..."OMG, I didn't put the PRIME water conditioner in!!!! AHHHHHH!!!"
Multitasking is a dangerous thing. lol. He was fine, but I felt soooo bad....

EDIT: And I moved one & he had fin damage even when I tried to be very careful. It sucks but it happens.

I'm glad to know that i'm not the only one that's had their poor fish end up on the floor or some other traumatic event. I guess no matter how careful we all are, accidents still happen.

I know what you mean CrankyFish!! I try to take care of Victor like he's my child, and I worry about him all the time! Thanks for reassuring me though, I'm glad I'm not the only one that screws up sometimes

Hmmm, next time maybe I won't let my boyfriend use the net

And I'll try to find a better temporary bowl!
