I'm so glad to have found this thread. It doesn't make me feel any better about losing so many fish recently. But, compared to some of the horror stories (multiple losses) here and on other threads, "There, but for the grace of god..."
I'm seriously questioning my qualifications and abilitiy to even keep fish. Though I do have four healthy males currently swimming and eating in my 'fish room,' aka my kitchen.
Unlike Sheldon and, from what I hear most other keepers, I have not found fishkeeping to be a particularly relaxing or stress-relieving hobby. I frequently sigh with relief in the morning when I find my fish alive and well. That's not the kind of stress-relief I need. :-}
Now I have "empty tank syndrome." Knowing full well I should not get another fish, I nevertheless am window-shopping. And nobody on this forum will encourage me NOT to get another fish. Thank goodness it's forty miles to my nearest PetcoMart.
Thanks for listening. <sigh>
