Time spent with Buddha: 6 months 3 weeks 2 days
Time spent with Pudge: 1 week 6 days
All is going well. Pudge had an incident two nights ago in which the filter popped off and fell into the tank. Being that he loves the thing, he was swimming around it, but I'm not sure if he was under it when it fell... Also, he has a few rips in his fins thanks to a plastic decor -.-
I need to get somethng else for the tank, something tall, but I'm not sure of what. I might measure the tank and get something from petsmart like a dragon or a ship. All I have in there is a log and a skull, both of which he loves.
I'm still not sure if he's full grown yet, seeing as how he's still small compared to Buddha... or Buddha is just huge. I think Buddha is about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long, body wise. It makes his swimming all that more stunning. Oh, and Buddha is doing great. He's been all over his tank, making poops :D He's no longer bloated, thankfully. I was wondering if I was over reacting since it wasn't THAT swollen xD
So, I noticed my sis had an attraction to my fish. She has been hinting about taking care of them and about how much work it is. I have to let her know that I don't feel comfortable with her owning a fish. She's not responsible enough for one, and won't have anyone there to tell her when a fish is sick. Also, she doesn't realize a fish is a lot of work, especially since she is always looking at the .5 and 1 gallon tanks at pet stores.
I admit it, unless said person is willing to put the time and work into taking care of a pet, I don't think a young child should have full responsibility of a pet. It's the parents responsibility as well if the child is young. But as I said, only if said child knows exactly what to do, such as my awesome friend on here, Lebronthe betta. LTB is young, and knows exactly what to do when caring for a fish. Now, one doesn't automatically start knowing everything, I understand that. But why is it so hard to just look up things on the internet before getting a pet, even as small as a fish? Why do people have to make up excuses when they just can't say "I don't know" or "I don't want to do this."
It REALLY irritates me and it ruins my day to be honest.
So yea, my little rant and update all in one xD
See you all soon
