OH MY GOODNESS! Okami flew across her one gallon QT tank earlier today (literally!) It was feeding time and I opened the lid on her tank to feed her and she jumped out, flew across the tank and landed in the water on the opposite side, LOL. She was either super excited or mad that I was invading her space, hahaha. It kind of scared me as I thought at first that she was trying to bite me (and that she might jump out of the tank completely). Hahahahahahahaha. What a personality she's got going for her, lol.
Anyways, I went to walmart earlier today because I wanted to get two more water siphons for my boys so that I wouldn't have to share one between all three tanks (and they only had one, of course. -_-) Anyways, there was a couple there buying fish. They asked for 7 fish from one of the tropical fish tanks and they had a freakin 3 gallon tank in their cart. I know the 1 inch of fish per gallon rule is total crap but they obviously didn't even follow THAT (At least most people believe that to be true). I also don't think they had a heater in their cart. I didn't want to like, stalk them or cause an angry outburst that would get me kicked out of the store so I just walked away, but when their fish all die within a day, maybe they will grow some brains and actually do some research instead of assuming that the walmart guy knows what they are doing (This lady was asking him if they would kill each other and he was like 'durrrr i guess not since they're all the same type of fish and they're all in the same tank'.) I should have said something but I'm pretty sure they would have ignored my advice anyways and either way it was a death sentence for the fish, because they would die in walmart sooner or later... Because, you know, the walmart associate must know everything there is to know about fishkeeping.
Anyways, the one female betta that they had left last week is still there. I can't believe she's still alive. They moved her from the shelf the bettas are usually on, though, so these people were looking around for the bettas like herp derp where the bettas at. OMY that's a betta. *female, ignore*
The poor girl had stress stripes and fin rot. It looks like she'd be red if she were put in the proper conditions and colored up... I bet she'd be really pretty if properly cared for. Too bad I don't have space for her right now :(
