You can say that, at least I can say my goldfish is nice and fit. I wonder what it'd do if it was released back into a bowl environment... As much as it has irked me I couldn't do that to him anymore.

>_< Looks like I am keeping him after all.

Sorry he's been a handful but I must say, I admire people like you.

You get this little fish dropped on you and you refuse to flush it even though it's putting you through so much.

I wish more people were like you :)

I wouldn't call myself admirable, I am just someone trying to swim with a fishy's tail. How would I like to be flushed down the toilet alive? How would I like to live my life only to one day be incovinent (sp?) and fed to some hungry animal? And now that I have 'em why should I treat it like sheet and love\take care of only my fish. Neglecting one while taking care of others makes no sense at all. Now take to mind the fact the minnows I found at a bus stop it wasn't my choice to have them either. I don't like goldfish but what makes one lost unwanted soul different from another?

you found your minnows at a bus stop? was someone going fishing? lucky fish to find you. the next person probably wouldn't have done this for them..you my friend, have a strong compassion for animals.a very good moral indicator. someone is getting karma points.

Much to my surprise the goldfish started taking food from the top of the tank. But not in a normal goldfish sort of way; no more of a minnow sort of way. Dash up grab food then head back down, and repeat. Maybe he thinks he's a minnow. Still waiting for him to fight like a minnow.

Anyway roommates kid came into my room. Much to my surprise he recognizes his goldfish and spent a bit watching it. The only way I could get him to leave was to tell him that the minnows where forebears of the monster in my room that eats little boys.

... ... There goes my Karma points right there.

YEAH you don't want to traumatize your own kids. How else are you going to get them to clean your tanks one day for you?
