Those fish may as well be flushed down the toilet, the horrible life they're living now.

Actually, that's a little cruel. Find someone with a big tank or post a notice online or in your corner store window saying free fish - come and collect.

Ugghh!! Just look at that poor thing suffer! It's so deformed and sick... I'm surprised that goldfish has lasted 20 years!

DO NOT WATCH THIS IF YOU MAY BE UPSET BY IT OR WHATEVER
I hiiighly doubt he's telling the truth. Probably a fish he picked up last week. Nothing could last in conditions like that for 20 years.

Nope. They used to live in a bowl, but my teacher upgraded them. But this one girl keeps bringing them in. What's funny is she's too young to leave campus so wouldn't the principal say something by now?? The "sucker fish" (until I find out what it really is) has sat in the same spot for a whole day now. And there's no plants in there, therefore no algae what-so-ever. It's just substrate in there! So he'll die off soon enough from STARVATION.

Hmmm... naah I reckon it's about 2 years old. It couldn't become that deformed within a week.

New fish died today. I saw parasites in them on Friday. Shouldn't be long until they're all wiped out.

Asked my teacher if I could have the tank (it's identical to my other two and I wanted three of them) and she said yes. She asked if I was purposely killing them for me to have the tank ;D So *hopefully* these dumb girls don't go get more. (I hate having a PetSmart right next to school! >.<) I talked to a few and they're like okay but it's 10 of them doing it or so...

I want to print up fact sheets about goldfish and such so they won't bring in more!!

I'll print some up tomorrow and thoughtfully tape it RIGHT ON THE TANK so none of them miss it. What I find hugely ironic is none of them really have a class with her... What's the point??

And I'm not telling anyone they have parasites. Maybe if all of them die they'll realize how cruel they're being and will give up. OR if I catch them dead before they do I can get the tank out of there before they can get more! MWAHAHAH!
